Poland: Inspecting Pajeczno Horse Market

The team of Viva! Interwencje, on behalf of Animals' Angels, inspects the horse market in Pajęczno.

The market starts very early in the morning. The horses arriving from all across the country are already tired after their long journeys. For the whole market day, they are not watered, even though the temperatures exceed 20°C.

Many farmers are drunk and their behavior is careless and dangerous. The horses are loaded in a violent way, many of them are beaten.

The observations will be presented to the mayor of Pajęczno and it is possible that several cases of violence towards horses will be reported to prosecution.
