“The farm is situated at 16th km of Kyiv-Odesa highway in Odesa region. During four days, the hangar will be equipped for the keeping of the sheep. The creation of the eco-farm, according to the volunteers, is an example of the human attitude toward the animals,” the message said.
As of November 5, 236 sheep are alive, the vets along with the volunteers took all necessary analyses from them. It is reported that the survived animals do not have infectious diseases.
As it was reported earlier, on October 6, the animals crossed the state border as “export goods” heading from Chornomorsk seaport (Odesa region) to Turkey. On October 12, they were returned as the Turkish side did not accept the cargo.
It was decided to dispose of 300 sheep which have been kept in a closed wagon in the port of Odesa region for more than two weeks. The State Service of Ukraine for Food Safety and Consumer Protection of Ukraine noted that it was impossible to return animals to Ukraine over the threat of spreading dangerous animal diseases.
As it was reported, the cargo was transported from Turkey. Ukraine’s Food Service reported with the reference to the World Organisation for Animal Health that the outbreaks of dangerous animal diseases, such as aphthous fever and others, were registered in Turkey.
On October 27, the animals were taken to Tulchyn department of “Ukrvetsanzavod,” Vinnytsia region.
The police opened the criminal proceeding against the cruelty to the animals.
