KIEV – The auction of two dogs seized from their owners on the order of a Ukrainian court to cover their debts has been in turmoil over public opinion.
The bid unveiled on a website of the property confiscated by the State has caused a public outcry on social media, reported Saturday the “New York Post” quoting the BBC.
One of the two dogs, a German shepherd, has found a buyer for 44 euros (around $ 67).
An opposition member of parliament, Oleksiy Honccharenko, has denounced this and called for an end to this kind of auctions, which could adversely affect the confiscated animals, which are used as currency of exchange.
The minister of Justice Denis Malyuska has defended the decision of the court to “confiscate the pets to their owners”, before suggesting that the auction of the dogs could be disrupted, according to the BBC.
