A Eurogroup for Animals report released today illustrates the high risk of zoonoses from wild animals kept as pets. Zoonoses are diseases which are passed from animals to humans with sometimes fatal consequences. With an ever growing number of these animals imported, sold and kept in the EU the threat of disease increases and prevention policies are becoming urgent. At a meeting of the European Parliament’s Intergroup on Animal Welfare in Strasbourg, MEPs were asked to support measures to restrict the import of wild animals.

Eurogroup for Animals is extremely shocked by figures published by the European Commission which show the recovery of export refunds for live animal export to third countries. Despite these animals being considered by the Commission as high value breeding animals which are transported in very good conditions they continue to be found dead on arrival, and give birth or abort during transport. This is deplorable and the use of export refunds should be stopped and animals recognised as sentient beings and not objects.

Eurogroup for Animals is extremely pleased that the European Parliament has supported a Written Declaration calling on the Commission and Member States to develop a cohesive policy for dog population management and compulsory identification and registration of dogs. This sends a clear message to the European Commission that it must act now and respond to Article 13 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union which states that, animals are sentient beings and that the EU and Member States must pay full regard to the welfare requirements of animals.

Eurogroup for Animals is extremely disappointed that the Commission in the proposals published today has missed the opportunity to address the animal welfare problems caused by very intensive systems of agricultural production. These systems cause distress to millions of farm animals and go against the concerns of Europe’s citizens who expect their food to be produced without animal suffering.
