Germany | Dresden | Training on animal transport in Dresden
During the road inspection animal transporters are inspected, among them a private horse transport, national transports with cows, pigs, sows for slaughter, an empty poultry truck and piglets on a long journey from Germany to Hungary.
All transports were in violation of Regulation 1/2005, Viehverkehrsverordnung as well as other relevant laws. for e.g. the lack of bedding to absorb feces, lack of headspace, inappropriate drinkers or lack of access to the animals. In a truck are two cows with dripping udders, which is extremely painful for the cows. Further procedures are started and the inspection of a fattening farm for pigs. This is due to a transport, were many pigs were missing their ear tips.
