01.07.2016 | Large Scale Investigation at the Bulgarian-Turkish Border

In the last 48 hours, more than 100 cattle transports have crossed the EU’s external border to Turkey.

The day is unbelievably hot, more than 36 °C. A truck from Czech carries pregnant cattle from Germany. As there is a problem with the accompanying documents, it takes the transport 36 hours to cross the border. Meanwhile, the animals remain inside the truck which is parked in the blazing sun.

In the evening, when the truck finally drives on, the animals still face a 1.000 km journey.
