ABSTRACT

The Third Criminal Section of Italian Supreme Court with the sentence n. 30177 of the 16 June 2017 has established very relevant principles about protection of animals, deciding that “(human) interest in not animal suffering” is legally relevant and that “as for the protection of pets and companion animals, the detention of crustaceans on the ice integrates the crime of mistreatment (art 727 Italian criminal code ), because it causes important suffering, for economic reasons, with the consequence that between the economic balance and (human) interest in not animal suffering, this last one is prevailing”.
