Saving Majlo - the fight continues.

Thanks to Nicole for this update on Majlo.

Majlo is a sweet and gentle dog who has never harmed anyone. Still he is confiscated and ordered killed by the police of Norway where he has been held in a secret location since February 2009. His family haven't seen him since he was taken away. They are charged  500 dollars to see their own dog, in addition to the 250 dollars they pay each week for his imprisonment. Their crime: Not knowing that the breed was banned in Norway when they came over from Sweden, where the breed is legal.

Although the law offers banned breeds to leave the country with their owners, the police insist on Majlo being killed instead. A behaviour test on Majlo proves that his temper is very good, but it has become a question of prestige to the police to take his life. Now it is up to the court to decide Majlo's fate.

 The police has, yet again, refused to follow the court's order to allow Majlo to return to Sweden with his family (where there is no breed ban). The police are still insisting that he be killed.

A NEW petition has been started, please sign:

Save Majlo

Please act now! Majlo needs your help!
Please also write to:
The Police Department: Att.: Christian Budsberg Pettersen

The Minister of Justice:

Tell them it is time the police listened to the courts and allowed this innocent dog to return to Sweden with his family. The law allows for banned breeds to leave the country, so why are the police not following their own law???

Please take a few minutes to do this ... his life depends on all of us taking action. Thanks!
Please CROSSPOST far and wide. Bruce in Northern Ireland got over 15,000 signatures, Majlo needs the same.
