Default Ban hounding in Russia!

We - the citizens of Russia - appeal to the world society and ask to support our demand for the ban of hounding – the training of hunting dogs for killing living animals allowed by the Russian legislation, a real sadism and obscurantism.

There are lots of training centers in Russia, where the prisoners - wild animals - are kept and victimized. They are bitten and torn up by hunting dogs for money paid by their owners. The hounding is a kind of business. Foxes, bears, raccoons, wolves, boars, badgers, squirrels, hares, martens and their cubs are sacrificed, as well as other animals, lions, for example, for people hunting in other countries. The federal legislation allows training on living animals all year round, and does not consider biological nature of animals.

They live in hell. They are kept in tight, dirty cages full of their excrements. The cages are so small that animals can hardly move or change their positions. They are so hungry that they do not have enough strength to protect themselves against dogs. They only leave their cages to be bitten or tortured by dogs. If they are wounded or crippled, they are not treated, but used for dogs training again and again till they die from wounds, shock, or are shot.
