In the Netherlands, when ducks need to be transported for slaughter, they are lifted by their necks/heads and thrown or tossed into containers. The roughness of this process was captured on video by Animals Rights a few years ago. In Czechia, it’s not allowed to hang ducks by their necks. Their regulations explicitly state that ducks must be supported, with a hand under the body and an arm around the body to keep the wings close to the body.
Eyes on Animals finds it incomprehensible that the Dutch authorities tolerate the practice of catching ducks by their necks. In our view, this contradicts the Council Regulation 1/2005. We hope that our authorities will critically examine this and take an example from countries like Czechia.
