A local freelancer from Eyes on Animals and the Animal Welfare Foundation inspected today a sheep truck from the Bulgarian transport company “Denis”. The animals were very overcrowded and yet the truck was still accepted by the EU authorities at this border crossing from Europe (Bulgaria) into Turkey. As a result of the stressful conditions inside, several sheep died. Our freelancer saw how the driver threw out their dead bodies behind a gas station in Kapikule on the Turkish side of the border. We are forwarding all of our observations and photos to all the pertinent authorities about the on-going horrendous problems at this border crossing and will not give up until the situation changes for the animals there.
