Web Desk: Some crimes are considered to be a very serious offence not only for the human but also for the animals. But do animals should get the same punishment like a man does? Because human can make use of their senses and information to take care of them, while animals do not have knowledge of what are crimes and illegal attempts.
A pregnant cow named Penka, who is due to give birth in about three weeks, has been awarded a death sentence, not because it killed or injured someone or damaged anyone properties, just because it crossed over to the European border while wandering.
Penka had walked away from the herd near the Bulgarian village of Kopilovtsi and crossed the border into Serbia, a non-EU country. The Bulgarian officers emphasized on the strict EU rules and said that Penka must be put down.
An online petition was begun demanding the European Parliament to make an exception. According to petition, ‘We believe that Penka’s case reflects a lack of compassion on the part of EU officialdom for everyday people, such as Penka’s owner, who is absolutely distraught.’
