    Romania's Constitutional Court has rejected objections to a new law, paving the way for thousands of stray dogs to be put down.

    Protests by animal rights activists, like those of many others from politicians to actors, were to no avail.

    The law, approved by President Basescu, allows for captured dogs to be killed if owners haven't claimed them within a fortnight.
