Today the team from EonA/AWF checked on the livestock market in Asenovgrad, Bulgaria. Equines, bovines, ovine, caprines and birds are brought to the market to be sold. The transport of the animals is mainly done in cars, vans and some small lorries that are absolutely not suitable for transporting animals correctly. Our team observed the transport and unloading of two (very skinny) horses from a small van. The market has enclosures for the animals however we have not seen any water or food being offered to the animals. The most illegal part of the market takes place just in front of the market where the animals are again sold from the car. Mainly sheep. The sheep sold outside the market are tied by the three legs and laid in the trunk of the car. Our team will send their report about necessary improvements to the local, national and EU authorities about this market. We hope, wth the help of the Bulgarian officials and police, we can make a difference to the animals here in the future.
