Dies ist eine Online-Petition of the European Parliament.


The petitioner cites various reports in the German media showing the dreadful conditions in which animals are transported from EU Member States to third countries, and under which they are then slaughtered. He states that transporting animals in this way is at odds with the EU’s basic ethical principles. The petitioner is calling for an immediate ban on the transportation of live animals to third countries and for more rigorous checks at borders within the Union. He highlights the need to observe appropriate travel and rest times for the animals, and notes that working animals, too, must be treated with care and respect reflecting the needs of their species.
