North Rhine-Westphalia: violations: horse farm with over 40 animals cleared

Mülheim an der Ruhr (dpa / lnw) - A horse farm in Mühlheim an der Ruhr has to stop operating due to allegedly serious violations of the Animal Welfare Act. On Thursday morning (from 7:00 a.m.) the police, the veterinary office and the public order office had already had numerous of the operator's animals removed. These include cattle, sheep, dogs and chickens. Five of the tenant's own horses still have to be identified, and the tenant has been prohibited from further running the farm by administrative order. These five horses are to be picked up later that day, a spokeswoman for the city of Mülheim said on request. The "WAZ" had previously reported.

Also affected by the closure of the farm are 40 so-called pension horses, which were housed there by their owners. They also need new housing. The owners have already been informed and now have a transitional period of up to two months to look for a new home for their horses. From now on, the horse owners would have to take care of their four-legged friends themselves, according to the city spokeswoman. She did not want to give details of the exact violations in the company with reference to the ongoing proceedings. According to reports, there have been several violations on the farm over a long period of time without the defects having been remedied - despite a request.
