Stray dogs are seen in a cage at a dog shelter in Bucharest September 12, 2013. A campaign to cull tens of thousands of stray dogs from Bucharest's streets after a 4-year-old boy was mauled to death has been held up by an appeal to Romania's highest court. The boy's death two weeks ago triggered street protests demanding action against the capital's more than 60,000 strays, who bite dozens of people every day and are a deterrent for foreign tourists. Last week, parliament passed a law allowing dogs caught in public spaces to be put down if they are not claimed or adopted within two weeks. But on Monday, the Constitutional Court received a challenge filed by 30 lawmakers from all parties. Picture taken September 12, 2013. REUTERS/Bogdan Cristel (ROMANIA - Tags: SOCIETY ANIMALS) less
