Bulgaria: Animal markets like from the previous century

Report of the organization against animal transports Animals ` Angels

Animals ‘Angels are in Bulgaria at the weekly markets in Haskovo and Raskovski.

In addition to all sorts of things, cattle, horses and donkeys, sheep, goats, rabbits, and poultry are sold here.

We have already complained several times to the Bulgarian authorities about the way the animals are treated, housed, and transported here – and about their poor state of health.

The ministry then presented us with a comprehensive plan to improve the situation in the markets. We now want to review the implementation of this plan – and we will be bitterly disappointed.

Nothing has improved for the animals.

Once again, the Bulgarian official veterinarians have made empty promises.

Calves are sold from the trunk of a car with their legs tied together. Emaciated sheep with respiratory problems are hoisted onto closed delivery vans without lights or ventilation.

Nervous foals are tied to vehicles and dealers beat horses and cattle who do not know how to get on vehicles without ramps.

My comment: “…Most of the trade takes place illegally in front of the marketplace, where the animals are traded directly from the cars. The handling of the sheep that are traded directly in front of the market entrance is particularly bad. They are tied by three legs, the fourth is used for pulling and carrying” (Eyes on Animals)

There are still around ten markets in Bulgaria where animals are offered for sale every week.
Cattle, sheep, goats, Equidae, rabbits, and birds are sold here.
Young pigs and piglets are also offered in illegal markets.

The conditions in the animal markets in Bulgaria do not in the least correspond to the requirements of the EU (No. 1/2005) and are reminiscent of relics of the past century.

Animal welfare does not play a role here.

But we still point the finger at China …

My best regards to all, Venus
