Today Eyes on Animals was asked by Welfarm and the gendarmes of Haute Savoie to help explain the EU legislation on the protection of animals during transport. There was a morning session followed by an afternoon session with the officials from the DDPP (previously the governmental veterinarian services) also giving a talk. The gendarmes came from all over the department, including near the Mont Blanc tunnel where many international livestock trucks pass.
A date is being planned for the near future to check on animal transports together on the road. A warm thank you goes out to them for their attention, motivation and generous way in which they hosted us.
