They were driven in two trucks with Serbian license plates to Austria, where they should have been handed over to Swiss customers, such as the state police Department wrote in its press release on Monday. It was not then but.

The authorities were previously a note from the population and examined on Sunday at 14.30 in the Parking lot in the vicinity of the Dornbirner Messe grounds several people. Swiss nationals, who had apparently ordered online, dogs and cats and in the reception wanted to take.

in addition to the animals, the police have also ensured an address list of potential customers and the Swiss authorities handed over, told ORF Radio Vorarlberg. The Switzerland must now decide whether there is a display of the transmitter. Because it is not yet sure whether the animals, as alleged, from an EU country, the customs investigation is turned on, said Veterinarian Norbert Greber. The dogs had partially been fourth or fifth in small cages. In addition, the animals had a strong thirst. Therefore, it could be assumed that you would get for a long time no water.

Organised gangs trading

To do this, Greber veterinarian at the Vorarlberg Radio: "It is this known mesh that animal protection organisations in people in medium-to press Europe on the lacrimal gland, and claim that the animals came from killing stations, or they had been rescued at the shelter just before euthanasia syringe."
