SUBJECT: Requesting help for Lipizzaner horses
Dear Mr. Tadic,
Animal Friends requests that you take action to help the Lipizzaner horses that are starving on a ranch in Novo Naselje, a district of Novi Sad.
Animal Friends is an animal protection and rights organization. We are active on the entire territory of Croatia, but we also support international initiatives, given the fact that, unfortunately, the suffering and exploitation of animals do not know borders imposed by man.
Trusting in your conscientiousness and concern for animals, we are joining the request made by Freedom for Animals group from Belgrade that you should personally intervene in order to solve this case in a satisfactory manner as soon as possible for the horses' benefit.
We would also like to make a reasonable proposal that that the horses should be allowed to move to Croatia, where they will be offered permanent and appropriate care.
We sincerely hope that our benevolent appeals will encourage you to prevent any further suffering and possible death of the Lipizzaner horses.
With best regards,
