Seminar on live transports for police and official veterinarians in Giessen (Germany)
During a seminar for police and official veterinarians, our project manager Iris Baumgärtner gives a lecture on welfare problems during live transports. She is supported by Dr Claudia Eggert-Satzinger, an official veterinarian with many years of experience with inspections of live transports. The main topic are the requirements of the European transport regulation as well as the national regulation in Germany on live transports. Moreover, we present examples of inappropriate drinking systems, partitions with risks for injuries, missing bedding material and animals unfit for transport.
