Memorial monument planned for Billy

On the first anniversary of the death of Billy – the dog that was thrown alive into a cardboard-crusher – the Animal Party said it planned to present blueprints and announce the opening of a special bank account designated for the construction of a remembrance monument, as well as an educational centre for animal welfare and protection at the spot where Billy is buried.

“Billy’s grave must become a symbol and an example for people and generations to follow,” the statement said. Billy was buried in Limassol by the Animal Party in July last year.

The party demanded of the Anastasiades government to expedite, among other things, the legal review of new regulations on the operation of pet shops and animal breeders, as well as regulation on animal shelters, and abandon any thoughts of licensing a dolphinarium or a seal park.

It also requested the government to discard thoughts of creating a crocodile park or slaughterhouse, immediately regulate the issue of importing exotic or other large animals, re-evaluate legislation governing the operation of zoos, and expedite the creation of an independent body on animal welfare.

The party asked the government to ensure the immediate and proper implementation of legislation on dogs and animal welfare.
