OIPA ANIMAL CONTROL OFFICERS HAVE RESCUED TWO PUPPIES IN THE PORT OF GENOA!
Two two-month-old dog puppies were found by the animal control officers of the OIPA of Genoa, Italy, in a joint intervention with the Coast Guard in the port of the Ligurian city. The desperate puppies had been locked up for over eight hours, chained around their necks and submerged in their own urine. One of them found within a cat carrier too small for its size and the other compressed in a cramped- up space on the floor of the vehicle below various objects and baggage.
The van was ready to go to Morocco and was stopped on time by the Coast Guard officers that discovered the presence of the two puppies left without water and totally terrified. The dogs were not only lacking microchips and adequate vaccines, but they did not even have the documents (health book and passport) nor the registration as passengers.
“Thanks to an investigation we were able to trace the history of these two puppies: taken from a farm in Nice they had been travelling for as many as eight hours in tremendous conditions, in a van with no ventilation and a disgusting smell, without even being able to drink or move freely – declared Giuliana Luppi, coordinator of the animal control officers of the OIPA of Genoa – Even more serious is the fact that those responsible wanted to embark them and leave them for more than twelve hours locked, on a journey that would have been fatal for them“.
The dogs were thus seized and taken to the relevant kennel, where they were cleaned and subjected to a careful check up by veterinarians, while for the guilt clause the complaint was taken both for the crime of mistreatment and for that of treating animals in conditions incompatible with their nature.
