LETTERS FROM CITIZENS
THAT CONTAIN REQUESTS TO CATCH HOMELESS DOGS WITHOUT RETURNING TO PLACES OF DOG'S CATCHING


Collective letter of the dwellers of Moscow Western Administrative District

To: Mr. Ye.A.Ilyinsky, Director
Charitable Society for the Guardianship of Homeless Animals

         We, dwellers of Fili-Davydkovo Area, Moscow Western Administrative District, have to turn to you for assistance, because over 40 people have been bitten by stray dogs in our area. At 3, Rublevskoe Shosse, near the entrances of residential buildings weve been able to count as many as 29 stray dogs. But these are not all the dogs, yet.
         We are denied the facilities of the district doctor, postman, janitor for these people have been dog-bitten more than once.
         We applied to the following organizations:
         1. Department of Communal Services, Housing and Municipal Improvement, Chief of Department of Urban Fauna Mrs. Pavlova; tel. 292-17-95;
         2. WATS General Director Mr. Anokhin, tel. 434-25-20;
         3. WATS (Wild Animals Trapping Service)clerk, tel. 684-50-75;
         4. Veterinary Clinic, tel. 142-01-05;
         5. TV Service of Moscow Western Adm. Dist. that shot some material, but failed to telecast it on the air;
         6. "Fili-Davydkovo" Area Council;
         7. Moscow Western Adm. Dist. Prefecture;
         8. Single Customers Board of Directors (DEZ) "Fikli-Davydkovo", Mrs. Aseikina.

         Certificates issued by health-care facilities were submitted to Single Customers Board of Directors "Fili-Davydkovo" by people who sustained bites of stray dogs. Some of the injured people were treated for injuries at hospitals. On the strength of these certificates, applications were made that were never fulfilled.
         Now that car parks have been removed from Starorublevskoe Shosse and an access main road has been opened for cars, all the dogs have bunched up into a single horde and every day charge, in concert, the passers-by, children, old people, tearing clothes, household bags, and leaving very painful bites with lacerated tissues, in which stitches are put at hospitals.
         It is impossible to leave the buildings via the main exits. Nearly the entire neighborhood was bitten by stray dogs. People have grown nervous to the point of a breakdown.
         The dogs are said to be neutered, yet they proliferate very rapidly, because there are many females in the horde, all of them embittered. At present, there are puppies among the big one-year old dogs.
         Nobody takes action.
         Please, do show mercy towards us, protect us from stray dogs by taking urgent measures to safeguard our peace.

Letter from a a lady-dweller of the Moscow South-western Administrative District

To: Yevgeny Anatolyevich Ilyinsky, Director
Charitable Society for the Guardianship
of Homeless Animals

Request

         I hereby request to take action and save us from enormous number of dogs in our district. We now fear leaving home. We inquired about trapping, but our attempts proved futile: they say, theres a long waiting list, which is not going to shorten, at all. To cut it short, we hope that your society will help.
         Yesterday was the last straw. I went out in the morning on business, and there is was! It was impossible to walk down the pavement as stray dogs were running to and fro there: their load barking and non-stop running put me in a stupor. Finally, some man scared the dogs away, but the feeling of fear lingered for a long time afterwards. That was not the end of the day, yet: when I was coming up to the entrance, I heard loud barking and then saw three dogs at my porch. I had to call up my mother asking her to look out of the window, just in case, so she could summon help! I call this total dependence of humans on the dogs!
         This shall not go on! I want to live I a normal city. I dont think one should wait for the dogs to start biting people, it is better to prevent this. I hope my request will be considered and proper measures will be taken.

Letter from a lady-dweller of the Moscow Eastern Administrative District

To: Director,
Charitable Society for the
Guardianship of Homeless Animals

         I wish to express my utter indignation at the enormous number of stray dogs that seem to dominate Moscow now. Hordes of stray dogs comprising rather large individuals live side by side with hospitals metro stations and residential buildings, threatening the life of the people.
         I live in Northern Izmailovo District. There lives a horde of stray dogs near our building. These animals are a nuisance to the dwellers and a threat to human lives. Several times I saw stray dogs attacking elderly people, children and owners of pet dogs.
         In autumn of 2003, I was attacked by a horde of stray dogs. This happened at 6.30 A.M. in the yard of the building where I live. I did not provoke in any way the dos aggressive behavior. A lot of my acquaintances and colleagues, living in Moscow, were attacked by stray dogs.
         Women with children who live in our building often fear going out to the childrens playground because there were situations, when the dogs attacked children.

         At night, it is virtually impossible to sleep, because stray dogs start barking; sometimes, the deafening barking lasts for several hours and one cannot get enough sleep to be able to start a working day.
         When stray dogs arrange the so-called dog weddings in front of the entrance to the building, the dwellers are unable to go out, and this happens on week days, when many people must go to work.
         Although the dwellers of our house repeatedly lodged their complaints with the Operation and Maintenance Department, no action was taken.
         Me and many other Muscovites are unable to move about freely as we have to choose routes where there are no stray dogs. Sometimes, it is impossible to reach a bus stop because the bus stop is occupied by a horde of stray dogs that are aggressive towards humans: they bark and attack people. Im forced to limit myself all the time as far as my movements are concerned for fear of being attacked by stray dogs. I cannot even go out early to make an appointment with a doctor at the district polyclinic (one has to do this a 6 A.M.), not can I go out to a drug-store to get medicine or to a shop to buy some foodstuffs, again for fear of being attacked by stray dogs.
         It is horrible that hordes of stray dogs roam the compounds of Moscow hospitals. The patients are not only unable to go out for a walk, but even to get to the hospital as hordes of stray dogs appear in the way. In March of 2006, I was unable to walk across the compound of Botkin Hospital, where my woman relative was undergoing treatment. There lives a horde of stray dogs on the compound of that hospital that attack the visitors. Strange, but the guards standing nearby are unable to protect humans from stray dogs attacks. Despite the patients complaints, the head physician took no measures to remove stray dogs from the hospital compound.
         In view of the numerous stray dogs dominating Moscow streets, I have problems making trips about the city connected with my work. Specifically, I mean addresses such as Teterinsky Pereulok (Taganskaya metro station), Artyukhina St. (Textilshchiki metro station).
         Many Moscow metro stations are inhabited by stray dogs. Many times, I saw stray dogs attacking passengers in the subway. I witnessed such situations at the metro stations Novye Cheryomushki, Ulitsa Gorchakova, Shchelkovskaya, Skhodnenskaya, Tushinskaya, Textilshchiki, Dynamo, Shosse Entuziastov. The interesting thing is that neither the metro personnel, nor militia took any action to protect the passengers.

         Besides, it is quite common to see pet dog owners, who do not muzzle their pets and walk them with no dogs leads.
         This situation is a crying shame to the capital city of a great state. I hope very much that measures to protect humans from stray dogs will be taken.

To: Mr. Ye.A.Ilyinsky, Director
ANO "Charitable Society

of Homeless Animals "

Dear Yevgeny Anatolievich!

         The administration of RAS Tsitsin MBG kindly requests that you may possibly arrange a non-return capture of stray dogs.
         The Main Botanical Garden is a scientific-research institution, its personnel made up of a large number of employees. The garden also functions a s a large park zone visited by numerous Muscovites and guests of the capital city.
         At present, we are very much concerned over the congregation of stray dogs on the territory of the Garden. Aggression of homeless animals has lately inflicted specific harm on people's health (we mean bites and injuries), and emotional shocks. The Administration of the Botanical Garden has repeatedly petitioned the city and municipal authorities, requesting assistance, but no assistance has been given.

         Please, organize non-return capture of stray dogs and accommodation of the dogs at an appropriate place, where they will be in safety.
         Faithfully yours,

To the Charitable Society for the Guardianship of Homeless Animals
Good afternoon!

         With great interest Ive studied information placed on your site, and have made up my mind to turn to you for help. The problem we have encountered in the Main Botanical Garden is facing most Muscovites.
         To most Muscovites, the Main Botanical Garden is a vast park zone. The interest to the unique collections of plants, the willingness to feast ones eyes on landscapes, flower fragrances in summer and breathe the air bring here a lot of people. In the daytime, our permanent visitors are elderly people and young mothers with children. However, lately, visiting the Garden has become dangerous due to a huge number of stray dogs that present a real danger to the Garden visitors.
         Weve had an enormous number of complaints of late on the cases of dog attacks (a young mother had a real hysterics: a stray dog jumped into her babys pram, having thus frightened both the baby and the Mother). Dog bites have become routine to us. Our Gardens personnel try to bypass the places of wild animal congregation, which hampers very much the performance of their duties.
         On the territory of the Garden at present there are quite a few puppies that will grow up by spring, will become stronger, and the Garden will turn into a park zone for stray dogs, not for the Muscovites.
         We are unable to cope with the problem on our own. On the other hand, we hate to see the animals in a situation similar to the one described in the article Shelter scandals. Please, help us.
         Faithfully yours,
         Assistant to Deputy Director

Moscow, 41, Prospekt Mira, stroenije 2

To: Mrs. S.O.Ilyinskaya,
Deputy Director
ANO "Charitable Society
for the Guardianship
of Homeless Animals"

Dear Svetlana Olegovna!

         In response to your request to issue a permit for 3-month long video filming of ownerless dogs on the territory of the Metro, I have pleasure to inform you as under.
         The problem of ownerless dogs you are dealing with at present is topical to the whole of our city. In fact, the number of ownerless animals inhabiting the municipal territory adjoining the metro stations has increased, and when it gets dark or the weather conditions deteriorate, the dogs move into street underground crossings and the entrance halls of metro stations, which naturally invites citizens' complaints and affects the quality of metro passengers' service.
         Pursuant to the Moscow Government regulatory documents, measures to settle the emerging situation are entrusted to the city specialized organizations and prefectures. The Moscow Metro staff do their best to assist them with a view to bring the situation in the street underground crossings and the entrance halls of metro stations back to normal, make sure that the passengers feel secure and comfortable.
         In view of the aforesaid, the Moscow Metro is unable to accept your proposal regarding the video filming of ownerless dogs in the street underground crossings and the entrance halls of metro stations, and feels compelled to reject your request.
         On the instructions of Mr. D.V.Gayev,

Letter from a dweller of Businovo Area

To: Charitable Society for the Guardianship of Homeless Animals

Good afternoon!

         Imagine the situation: a horde of stray dogs, that was between the Businovo pipe-making plant and S.Radionezhsky Temple, barely torn my mother to pieces as she was coming out of the temple to the carriage-way so as to board a bus.
         In this connection, I wish to ask you if anything can be done to annihilate the said horde of stray dogs??
         Or shall I have to resolve the problem on my own??
         Im sure there have been many complaints about the said horde of stray dogs in this area!!!

To: Charitable Society for the Guardianship of Homeless Animals
Good afternoon!

         Im asking for a piece of advice.
         Its been nearly a year since the territory around my house was inhabited by diseased dogs. At first, there was just one dog, and now its a whole diseased gang. As I look at the dogs, I feel both pity and fear. Besides, there are childrens playgrounds all over the place.
         The dogs infect one another, and individuals that were healthy until recently are also taken ill: they have some scabs on the skin, in some places there is no hair cover. Apparently, the dogs joints ache, too: one dog can barely move, unable to sit or lie, all the time standing or dragging its feet slowly.
         I feel very sorry for the dogs.
         I doubt the dogs can be cured or somebody will volunteer to help them.
         I simply have no idea, where I could telephone and what can be done about the dogs, for Im sure they will keep ailing this way.
         They say it is cruel, but may be theres some of drugging the animals to sleep?
         What will you say?
         Thank you.

Application from a lady-dweller of the Moscow South-western Administrative District

         Please, take action to save us from the enormous number of dogs in our district. We now fear leaving our homes. We enquired about dog trapping, but our efforts have proved futile: they say theres a long line that is not even about to decrease. To cut it short, we only lay hopes on your society.
         Yesterday, I realized that my patience has worn thin, it was the last drop. I left home in the morning to do some business, and could not walk down the footpath as stray dogs were rushing there to and fro; the deafening barking and non-stop running put me in a state of stupor. Finally, some man scared the dogs, but the feeling of fear stayed with me for a long time afterwards. That was not the end of the day, yet; as I was coming up to the house entrance, I heard loud barking and then saw three dogs on my porch. I had to give a call to my mother to look out of the window just in case, to be able to summon assistance! At present, people are absolutely dependent on the dogs! This cannot be continued! I want to live in a normal city. I dont think we have to wait until they start biting, its better to prevent the worst. I hope my request will be considered and action will be taken.

Dear Yevgeny Anatolyevich and Svetlana Olegovna!
Good afternoon!

         I wish to ask you for help in trapping the dogs!
         I never thought I would face the problem on such a scale!
         My attitude towards people trying to annihilate stray dogs has always been negative, for in my opinion the dogs will not come out in the street by themselves; stray dogs are engendered by human activity; therefore, Ive always taken the side of the animals, fed them, yet those were just a few dogs that I encountered in a car park, in the garage! At present, however, the situation is absolutely different; near our house in the Moscow North-western Admin. Dist., on the territory that is part of the sluices, at Bolshaya Naberezhnaya St. one can see hordes of stray dogs that, for the time being attack pet animals only, but winter is in the offing. Even now, Im against extermination of the dogs, this is why Ive turned to you.
         Please, tell me, maybe there exist even commercial organizations (as I understand that its no use applying to WATS), that trap and neuter the dogs without releasing them to their habitat?!
         I hope you will help!
         Faithfully yours

Collective Letter from the residents of the Central Administrative District of the City of Moscow

To: Mr. E.A. Ilyinsky,
Director, "Charitable Society
for the Guardianship of Homeless Animals",
Autonomous non-profit organization

Dear Sir,

         We, residents of the Shelepikha Embankment in the Presnya CA District of the City of Moscow, hereby appeal to you for help since the local authorities are blind and deaf to our problem.
         The point is that our fine green oasis not far from the center of the city has become a nursery for the proliferation of homeless dogs that pose a real threat. These animals have turned in recent years from nice curs into packs of savage beasts. We regret to say that the number of these dogs is rising all the time; the litter appearing in various places all the year round grow up into young robust aggressive species. There is more and more palpable evidence of fighting breeds coming into the picture. Everybody is alarmed both the residents who fear for themselves and for their children, and the owners of domestic animals. We are not going to describe instances of dogs attacking and biting people, but one point to note is that it is often domestic animals, above all dogs, that suffer. For example, theres an unfortunate cocker spaniel that is still all bandaged. It becomes increasingly impossible to walk the pets, the dogs lead being no guarantee of protection. Packs appear just as suddenly as they vanish. Cats have deserted our district (instead, rats have proliferated). Here is a typical scene a cat that lived near a house without being a nuisance to anybody has been torn to pieces by a pack right opposite the childrens playground before the eyes of mums and kids.
         There are kind souls that pity these animals and even feed them occasionally. However, unlike domestic dogs, the street creatures are never grateful to them. There was a certain lady having her arm bitten hard by her pets for all her kindness. The Presnya District Council, as its very officials testify, has been swamped with complaints about attacks by wild dogs in Shelepikha. The officials themselves allege sterilization is in progress. However, this activity has not produced any visible results at all. Some stop trapping is said to have occasionally been carried out, but apparently it is most inoffensive dogs that have thus been trapped, leaving the dangerous ones free to reappear before long in their favorite places as if nothing had happened. Packs have come to see and, accordingly, defend as their own domain not only rubbish heaps or parking lots but also adjoining yards and roadway through which it is dangerous to walk by day or by night. For example, there are just a couple of food shops on our side of the embankment and some five or six packs living around. We cannot tell you the exact number as we have lost count. Its terrifying to go out any time of day or night, although its a peace time but we have to face a totally absurd peril.
         Our city aspires to a privilege of hosting the next Olympic Games. It doesnt take too much imagination to fancy the way a visitor to Moscow would feel once in local fauna surrounding like that of Shelepikha. Humane treatment of animals is fine. Many of the undersigned have all kinds of warm fluffy creatures living side by side with them at home. So what animals have to be protected? And what are people to do as there is no society for the protection of people from animals!. We who have lived through rather painful experience and fear are absolutely confident that there must be no wild, we stress this once again, no wild animals living in our streets side by side with us. We resolutely object to legitimating the current situation. We must work, rest, raise our children, live without fear for ourselves and our kith and kin.
         (March 20, 2005, the letter has been signed by 150 residents of the Shelepikha Embankment, stating their names and addresses)
         (Comment by site editor: this collective letter we have used in drafting an appeal to the deputies of Moscow City Duma (dated 31.03.2005) and a petition to Moscow Mayor Yu.M.Luzhkov (dated 06.04.2005).)

From the young mothers of Sviblovo Area

To: Mr. S.A. Burov,
Head of Sviblovo Area Authority,
from the young mothers,
Teniostyi Pr., Verskovaya St.

PETITION

        In our courtyard, the so-called dog fans feed stray dogs. These people are not liable for animals. The dog fans are trying to set up kernels made of cartons, yet in this case, the animal remains on a leash, therefore the dogs present a direct threat to the health of our courtyard residents.
        A dog living in our courtyard bit a 6 year old girl, she is now being treated for the wound (Vereskovaya St. ...). The Burtsovs intend to petition a court of law.
        The dogs tore a cat to pieces (Tenistyi Pr....), pounced on a perambulator with an 11-months-old child (the dogs had to be pushed away with feet, Tenistyi Pr...).
        Young mothers are afraid of going out with small children. The aged dog fans are not after anything. They deny all cases of dog attacks, defending the dogs. Therefore, many residents of our house conclude that dog fans place greater value on the dogs than on human health.
        The dog fans were emphatically against the building a small childrens playground in a place where the dogs used to be walked and slept. Prior to the construction of the playground, the dog fans would not allow children to play ion the grass so the grass should stay untrampled, but the dogs did walk there.
        We beg to organize no-release trapping of animals to protect ourselves and our children against attacks of such animals.
        We appeal to the staff of the area authority and the deputies of the municipal assembly to explain the situation to the residents of our courtyard so they should not henceforth feed homeless animals.

From the personnel of the District Telephone Exchange Otradnoe",

To: Director of the Autonomous Non-profit Organization
Charitable Society
for the Guardianship of Homeless Animals
Evgeny Anatolievich Ilyinsky
from the personnel of the DTE "Otradnoe"
Address: 21-A, Signalnyi Proezd

Petition

        We, the personnel of the DTE Otradnoe beg to assist uis in our struggle against aggressive stray dogs that threaten our life.
        We already had an accident at out exchange on 10.01.04, which we all witnessed. The boiler house operator Ye.P.Sukhova was walking to her job in the morning, when suddenly she was attacked by a pack of stray dogs that pounced on her an bit her terribly. It was only thanks to a happy stress of circumstances that the incident was noted. With grave injuries, Ye.P.Sukhova was taken to Sklifosovsky Institute. The same dogs had hitherto manifested aggressive behavior towards passers-by.
        Four days later, another incident occurred, this time with a fatal outcome (a woman V.Arkhipova) was torn to pieces, the incident was reported by the press (MK).
        The service of trapping wild animals gives a very poor performance. They do not come every day, despite newspaper reports. We only saw the service at work two times, with a 10-day interval. The service traps feeble dogs only. The service workers even did not try to trap or give a euthanasia injection to blood-thirsty dogs, although such dogs were nearby. They only collected dogs which were given away by nearby organizations (these had many dogs, but those dogs were well-fed and they were not very aggressive), and the trapping service might well have written a suitable report, whereas the pack of dogs that attack people is still at large.
        We see those dogs every day: they are lying on warm pipes, or choose their next victims, taking a position on snowy hills. Accidents keep occurring. Al, the time we hear about dogs attacking somebody. Such dogs should be shot dead, not trapped. Why does nobody want to realize this and defend us? It looks like we pity and protect the animals, but not the humans: let them maim our lives, take away our health.
        We witnessed that accident and have, to this day, been in a state of shock from what we saw. We fear walking to the job, we assemble in groups of several people, get armed with sticks, reinforcement, are in a state of nervous tension all the time. They showed us on TV, wrote about us in the newspapers, but no action has been taken, the dogs keep running about, threatening human lives.
        Ever since that ill-fated accident, we have lost peace. This affects our performance, and our is a facility of fearful responsibility. One is under the impression that only animals are protected, while we have no rights. We are losing trust in the government and law-makers.

Director Evgeny Anatolievich Ilyinsky.

        Please, help with non-release trapping of dogs, living on the territory of a full-fledged childrens playground and near to the entrances of a house at Tyoplyi Stan St. ...
        Under the prevalent circumstances, it is problematic to walk out into the street or play with children on the playground, because dogs scare the children, and with behavior and barking create stressful situations. Under the existing circumstances, it seems problematic to go out or play with children, because the dogs scare children, and by their behavior and barking create stressful situations. Cases of dogs attacking residents of the house were noted on more than one occasion.
        We are afraid the health and psyche of our children may be impaired, and appeal to you to assist in settling the resolving the situation.

Two letters

Letter 1

To: ANO Charitable Society
for the Guardianship of Homeless Animals
E.A. Ilyinsky

Dear Evgeny Anatolievich!

        We appeal to you to assist in resolving the existing situation.
        In the compound of F.M.Dostoevsky school No 1148 at Moscow, 2, Krasnodonskaya St., korpus 4 and on the nearby territories stray homeless dogs are often encountered, These dogs present a threat to children and residents of the area. Some citizens, who were attacked by the dogs, lay the blame on the school, claiming that school personnel feed the animals.
        Indeed, the students of the school and residents of the area, who love animals and feel sorry for stray dogs, do their best not to leave the animals starving. On more than one occasion, school personnel begged the residents of neighboring apartment houses to be guardians of stray dogs, but such requests were invariably met with a refusal.
        The school administration was forced to turn to municipal authorities, requesting them to take action towards removal of the dogs from the school compound; however, the action boiled down to a situation where trapped dogs were neutered and afterwards released to come back to the school.
        The school teachers are hereby appealing to you with a request to take the dogs to a dependable place, help them find a home and devoted owners.
        We expect understanding and assistance from you.

        The residents of nearby apartment houses keep accusing us of violating the regulations of the sanitary-and-epidemiological station, are filing complaints with Moscow Department of Education, with the South-East District Education Authority, the administration of RU Lyublino, whereas none of the district dwellers is willing to become a guardian of the dogs.
        Please, do take part in resolving this problem.
