Investigation in France: Calves remain hungry at EU supply station (control post)

Our team is inspecting the condition of the young animals and the loading situation.

The truck is already on the motorway while the calves should be inside the supply station.

The police stop a truck with 200 hungry calves near Besancon (France). This police action is possible due to our cooperation with the French NGO Welfarm and the EU politician Caroline Roose from the Green party.

The night before our investigation team observes the calves from the Czech Republic being unloaded at a supply station in the Alsace. However, they are not being supplied properly. Moreover, the required resting time for of 24 hours was ignored by the transporter. Together with Welfarm we are preparing legal steps against the operator of the supply station.
