A video filmed at the Turkish-Bulgarian border shows a truck load of bulls is still stranded after six days.
Compassion is calling on the EU Commission to liaise between Turkey and Bulgaria to resolve the problem and alleviate the suffering of these animals.
EU bulls stranded at the Bulgaria/Turkey border
- Please email EU Commissioner Dr Tonio Borg, CAB-SEFCOVIC@ec.europa.eu. Ask him to liaise between Turkey and Bulgaria to alleviate the immediate suffering of these animals, and ensure that all animals travelling from the EU to non-EU countries have their welfare protected. In particular, no farm animal should travel for more than 8 hours to slaughter, and slaughter must meet or exceed international animal welfare guidelines.
