In Belgrade, Serbia’s capital city, pet owners have few options available to them for their pet’s burial. The city has been discussing a pet cemetery for over a decade, but construction is still in the planning stages. Many pet owners refuse to use the public services available to them and instead opt to bury their pets in local parks and suburban forests. Sasa Milovanovic, a resident who frequents local parks with his dog, Woopy, said residents with pets must simply “manage any way they can.”
