Lottery Draws for three pigs in Bilbao reported


Wings of Heart, the farm animals´ sanctuary, has filed an administrative report against the organizers of a lottery draw for three suckling pigs in Bilbao, for the presumed infraction of the Law of Animal Protection of the Basque Country and the Municipal Ordinance on the ownership and protection of animals which expressly prohibits using animals for ¨publicity prizes or compensation¨.

The report is directed both to the City Government of Bilbao as well as the Foral Regional Government of Biscay, with the goal of proving the existence of other possible cases of non-compliance in this lottery drawing, with regards to the prevailing regulations about the identification, registration and sanitation of porcine livestock.
