Please help Majlo !
An innocent dog needs your help ! Please take the time to sign this petition and spread the news about Majlo, before he is unjustly KILLED by the Norwegian police !!!
Majlo is a sweet and gentle dog who has never harmed anyone. Still he is confiscated and ordered killed by the police of Norway, and has been held in a secret place since February 2009. His family haven't seen him since he was taken away. They are claimed for 500 dollars to see their own dog, in addition to the 250 dollars they pay each week for his imprisonment. Their crime: Not knowing that the breed was banned in Norway when they came over from Sweden, where the breed is legal.
Although the law offers banned breeds to leave the country with their owners, the police insist on Majlo being killed instead. A behaviour test on Majlo proves that his temper is very good, but it has become a question of prestige to the police to take his life. Now it is up to the court to decide Majlo's fate. The trial will be held in december. Please tell them how wrong it is to kill an innocent dog and deprive a family of their beloved friend, just to make an example!
Majlo is a loving pit bull who until recently lived happily without incident with his family in Sweden. That is until Majlo's family moved to Norway unaware of the Breed Specific Laws there. Now the Norwegian police have Majlo in a cold, dark kennel and they want to kill him. There is a picture of Majlo on the petition site. Look into his eyes and PLEASE take a moment to sign these petitions. Even better, please take a second to write to the police department.
