Who is the Beast?
Until recently, there have been no laws regarding the keeping of animals in Russia. The situation should change with the adoption of a new law on responsible treatment of animals.

Humane stray animal control practices and licensing of zoos and circuses should result in fewer cases of animal mistreatment, but it will take a group effort and some targeted funding.
