ABSTRACT

During last July (5 to 31) of 2017, I had the opportunity to work with Animal's Angel's in different investigations on the compliance with European regulations on long distance transport of farm animals. Among them, the monitoring of vehicles used for animal transport in Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria and Turkey and the verification of animal welfare conditions in popular markets, were some of the most important tasks carried out during this internship. The lack of humanity of the people in charge, the mistreatment of the animals and the continuous non-compliance of the minimum standards described in the European law (Regulation of the Council of the European Union No. 1/2005), were the common denominator of our findings.
