Today, our team is controlling the cattle market in Wola Lagowska. We count about 500 animals. The cows are a majority, but there are also some bulls and calves. During the inspection, we see that most animals are in acceptable condition, only a few animals have neglected hooves, and some injuries on ischial bones caused by transport conditions. These wounds are already disinfected by market vet. After some time, we discover that one of the cows has a rope halter ingrown into her head. We immediately inform the trader Ogonek and order to remove the halter and tie her by the neck. One of his workers does it carefully. This case is reported to the Police and the remaining infringements will be reported to Veterinary Inspection. The market is getting empty between 9 and 10am.
