Very impresive... but the blogger who set this knows nothing about Romania and the very specific custom of Danube's Delta inhabitants. First of all, even they are Romanian citizens, most of them are Ukrainians and Russians known as "lipoveni". A well informed anthropologist will see very fast the whole picture. The people of Danube Delta are, unfortunately, maybe the poorest from all Romania, due to many factors, cultural and political.
Poverty brings misery, both to people and the animals living in the Delta.
The terrible comments against Romania as a country are unfair, though. I would ask the Western animal rights defenders how many bears live in France, Germany, Uk, Holland und so weiter?
The answer: none. In Romania is the largest population of Europe, estimated to 5500 animals.
So, as the great civilizators of Rome said once, take this story with a grain of salt...cum grano salis.
