Sad day for us yesterday
Good on your SIL and all of yours' Roger.
The number of answers on this board tells us that generally people couldn't give a toss.
Forest workers and people living nearby have to deal with it.
No Weeg - don't do that Polish "but what about......." nonsense. It needs dealing with. The people you mention see all - It's village life FFS.
When they take the registration of the car dumping the animals they should be awarded money out of public funds.
The people who do this are guilty of animal cruelty and should be facing a year in prison. Having their teeth smashed in when their fellow prisoners learn what they are about is the very least they deserve.
Appreciate all replies, but please dont deviate to much from the topic. My main concern is how it is to have a dog when studying in Poland :)
Now now - don't get touchy with us :) We're trying to help you - just pointing out the dangers. And I advise you to manage your own dog. I am exceedingly busy, and my 2 year old is bouncy, healthy and happy. It can be done. Roger and Weeg were just letting you know of the realities of this still backward country.
I was so angry after reading Rogers' story that I decided to walk my dog on the beach from Gdansk to Sopot to cool off. It was a hilarious experience. He was walking at heel in the surf, and I was wearing my headphones - of course as everybody knows, Poland thinks it's America and a lot of councils ban dogs from the beaches in season. I am happy to report that a few other owners of well trained dogs were flouting the law as well.
I reckon this law is unenforceable if you are walking your dog between low and high tide mark. I had a few lifeguards come up to me and order me off the beach -but they have zero authority and I just smiled at them. One jobsworth tried to grab me but a legal warning did for him.......
No straz in sight - so now we know. In an emergency, the beaches are not safe - don't anybody tell ISIS.
So we have silly lifeguards sticking their nose in and overstepping their mandate, but forest rangers wont point their guns in the right direction and do a citizens' arrest on those who abandon animals.
What a joke.
