Romanian Government Votes to Euthanize Stray Dogs

The Government in Romania have made the sad and inhumane decision to murder the stray dog population that exists there as they will go ahead and euthanize stray dogs.
I quote:
'Parliament voted by 168-111 to pass the law, which is expected to be signed by President Traian Basescu. The law will allow officials to round up homeless dogs from the street, hold them in shelters for 30 days and then have them killed.'
I feel this is disgraceful and totally the wrong way in successfully controlling the stray dog population in Romania.
It is a money making scheme in which officials will benefit from the deaths of the dogs, as money will be sent to them to carry out these murderous acts.
Thousands of innocent dogs will die, they are totally oblivious to the fact that this law has been voted for and that they will no longer roam free and live their everyday life. They do not know that tomorrow may be their last day to live their last day for human affection, their last meal they would eat, this is all because 'the human race is far 'superior' to dogs and has the right to choose who should live and who should die.' (I don't think so!)
The only way forward is Neuter, Spay and releasing some dogs back to their territories, while keeping others in dog shelters where there is a chance for people to rescue a dog or find dogs for adoption. Dog owners need to be may responsible for their dogs and it should be mandatory for all owners to have their dogs operated on, registered and all paperwork in place.
