On November 9th, a team from Eyes on Animals inspected the yearly horse- market in Hedel (the Netherlands) where we observed and documented numerous important animal-welfare violations. As usual, we sent our report out to our regular recipients, which always include the nVWA (new combined AID and VWA inspectors). As a consequence, the nVWA invited us to their head office to discuss in greater detail our observations and to think about which steps Eyes on Animals and the nVWA can take to prevent these problems in the future.
It was a very useful meeting where we were able to brainstorm and exchange experiences. Eyes on Animals would like to thank the nVWA for the invitation.
