Please sign this petition and help to keep rabbies out of Britain, we've been rabbies free for centuries, this mad E.U. reg will cause countless misery to many, many imported pups that will be brought in to be sold cheap:(

THE PETITION LINK:-http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/27096

These are the words of of the lady who created the petition.

"It is only twelve days since the rules changed on bringing pets into the UK and the worst possible scenario has just happened.

A web site has been offering any breed of dog for £250.00 delivered to a lay-by near Dover. The first shipment arrived from Bulgaria, one of the countries with the highest level of rabies in the EU.

One of the ‘customers’ of this web site met the van at the lay-by along with lots of other people, paid his money and chose his dog. A seven week old puppy. He took it to the vet the next day with the paper work he had been given to be told that the passport was not a real one, there was no chip and that a puppy of that age could not possibly be vaccinated against rabies.

A quarantine kennel was called and the puppy taken in to custody. DEFRA was called and it appears that after a certain time at the port there are no DEFRA staff – the van arrived one hour after the office had closed and was able to pass through without any checks. How interesting is that!

There are now several dogs somewhere in the UK that are in homes from this shipment who may or may not be rabies carriers.

The ‘customer’ does not want the puppy back and has been offered another one from the next shipment – which is next month.

This is just one case of this that we know about because of the puppy being taken to the vet who realised what he was handling. There are probably many more we don’t know about."

Please help we need all the signitures we can get, if we get enough it has to go through parliament and be read.

Pauline, I went through the whole process & then got dumped after hitting "Send" because I'm not a citizen of the UK and don't reside there, sorry.

We haven't had a case of Rabies anywhere in the San Francisco Bay Area for well over 60 years now, which is all thanks to strict Vaccination requirements here -- But unfortunately, the authorities & vets have also OVERDONE it on unnecessary inoculations, which can cause "Vaccinosis" with deadly results ... So it's much better to continue keeping Rabies out of the UK all together, just as you've said !
