The affordable education loan option
Bucharest - The mayor of the Romanian capital says there will be a referendum on whether thousands of stray dogs should be euthanised after a four-year-old boy was killed by a stray this week.
Sorin Oprescu said on Thursday that the date for the referendum will be decided on Friday.
According to animal welfare authorities, about 1 100 people were bitten by stray dogs in Bucharest in the first four months of 2013.
President Traian Basescu called on the government on Tuesday to pass a law that would allow for stray dogs to be killed, saying “humans are above dogs.”
