The Road Transport Academy in Hungary has decided to include live-animal transport in their curriculum, as requested by the official road inspectors in Hungary. As of recently, Hungarian road inspectors have to now also learn about the European legislation on the protection of animals during transport, so they can check on animal-welfare during transport and enforce the rules.
Eyes on Animals and TSB|AWF was asked to help with this new compulsory further-education course. Today, Levente (our Hungarian trainor/inspector) gave a lecture on the EU animal-protection-during-transport regulation and the related national legislation to the officers of the National Hungarian Transport in Eger, Hungary. The 26 participants were attentive and the whole course was interactive.
Eyes on Animals is very pleased- we are getting the legislation designed to protect animals put more and more into practice by the authorities with the power to do so! And throughout Europe!
