The Polish prosecutor’s office is preparing charges of bullying animals for a Russian citizen who was trying to smuggle 10 tigers across Italy from Dagestan.
According to the PAP agency, the Polish district prosecutor's office reports that the organizer of the transportation of animals, a citizen of the Russian Federation, has been detained.
A man, according to a source, should be brought to the prosecutor’s office on Thursday. The Polish prosecutor decided to charge the defendant with mockery of animals.
According to one version of the investigation, a Russian citizen organized the transportation of animals in inappropriate conditions for them.
In the cages, tigers were in terrible conditions – without water and food.
Haggard animals were temporarily taken over by the Poznan Zoo. It is already known that after some time tigers will be transported to a shelter in Spain.
In the Poznan zoo, where the animals were delivered, it was reported that the condition of the predators is very serious.
The hair of tigers is excreted, "they are thin, dehydrated, they have sunken eyes and there is no will to live."
Recall that a few days ago a truck that transported tigers from Italy to Russia was not allowed on the Belarusian-Polish border due to a lack of certificates that are required in Belarus.
Tigers were “stuck” on the border from October 26 to night on October 31, after which the Polish zoo agreed to accept dying animals.
