Four Paws Foundation: Penka the cow has become a symbol of bureaucratic absurdity

Pazardzhik. The case with Penka the cow shows how bureaucracy in its desire to abide by the law is capable of sacrificing the life of a totally healthy animal, with perfect documentation, Yavor Gechev of the Four Paws Foundation told Focus Radio – Pazardzhik.
If someone could ever teach an animal what a state border is, then the position of the institutions might be adequate. “Until then, the owner should receive an appropriate administrative sanction in the form of a fine, but talking about slaughtering the animal is insanity,” said Gechev. According to him, Penka has become a symbol of bureaucratic absurdity, “Penka became a political issue with the massive support she gained through the online petition to save her.”

Focus recalls: At the beginning of June, Penka the cow became a media star after major European media outlets reported the story of the animal threatened with execution after straying outside the EU into non-member Serbia. The Bulgarian sanitary authorities ordered the cow to be put down, as it violated EU rules.
