Animals’ Angels inspects a live animal transport with lambs from Hungary while it is waiting for the entry permit. One leg of lamb Akos is jammed between the floor divider and the outside wall of the lorry. Animals’ Angels points this out to the driver, who releases the animal.  Fortunately, Akos is not injured. However, the situation repeats itself a few hours later: another lamb gets its leg jammed and cannot free itself. Again, the drivers do not notice this. A closer inspection of the vehicle reveals that there is a construction fault: the gaps are so big that the small animals’ legs get stuck easily. Animals’ Angels is going to send a complaint to the authority who issued the licence for this vehicle.
