EU Commission reply on Petition No 0251/2014 by Pia Berrend (Luxembourgish) on the mistreatment of stray dogs in Romania

The petitioner states that Romania uses only one method to control the dog population: euthanising stray dogs, and considers this practice to be contrary to European values and asks the European institutions to enforce Article 13 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union. The Commission replies that it can only act within the framework of  its competences, and most of the issues raised by the petitioner are beyond them.
