Horse charity urges action in fight against transportation laws

Posted on | 0 Responses

The World Horse Welfare has called for help from equine insurance subscribers in their campaign for action against long-distance transportation of horses across Europe.

It has urged horse insurance customers to email European commissioner John Dalli directly in order to reinforce that the current legislation regarding equine transportation is completely inadequate.

In October the charity presented the European Commission with the second edition of its Dossier of Evidence, which gives clear indications on the amount of suffering involved for horses on long-haul transportations.

Their recommendations have not been taken into consideration however and campaigns officer at the World Horse Welfare Hannah Lynch said the organisation was extremely disappointed for the guidelines to have fallen on deaf ears.

“However, we will not let this stop us from fighting for change and that is why we are asking for the support from people across Europe to support our campaign and contact Commissioner Dalli," she continued.
