Mrs.Natalya Klimantova and her family moved out of their house in Kireevsk, Russia and left 6 dogs and 4 cats to starve.

The neighbours tried to feed them, but the dogs were aggressive and this process represented a danger to the lives of other people. The local animal rescue group was notified when it was already too late. Unfortunately, only 2 dogs survived out of 6: one of them gnawed the lead and ran away, the others died of hunger with a chain around their necks. All cats also starved to death as well.

At the moment the house is for sale, the corpses of dogs and cats hasn’t yet been removed and are lying around the property.

figure-16Forgotten Animals has been lobbying the Russian government for years, proposing improvements to the animal cruelty law in Russia, which currently is not effective.

The government has been ignoring the demands from  the Russian people to toughen the law. The officials are claiming that the law is sufficient, despite the evidence of the opposite. Despite this, we will try and open a cruelty case so these people can be punished, as much as it is possible under the current law.

At this picture Mrs. Klimantova is holding one of the dogs she chained and abandoned to die a horrible death without a chance to escape.
