Today we joined the ITD inspectors to perform the practical part of our training-courses on the EU directive about the protection of animals during transport. The ITD team split up, each car going in different directions in search of livestock trucks to escort them to the control point we have set up. This way, even though in this area there is not that much circulation of animal trucks, the inspectors are still able to stop and check on three. We perform joint inspections. We are pleased to see cattle transport and pig transport performed without any serious animal-welfare problems. One transport company was fined because a partition was broken and thus not in use to create separate groups of pigs on the first floor. It is risky to not use partitions as the animals are more prone to fighting but also during breaking, they can injured themselves when flying from the back of the truck to the front. The company’s papers have been suspended until the partition is fixed. Another livestock transport company, transporting cattle, received a warning because the driver did not have any transport documentation on him according article 4 of Reg. 1/2005 for short distances.
