Farm Inspection in Poland

The team of Viva! Interwencje, on behalf of Animals' Angels inspects a small farm where an elderly farmer keeps one sow with piglets, several rabbits, hens, and three dogs.

The maintenance conditions are poor. The pig pens need to be cleaned and the animals lack constant water access, what the owner is immediately ordered to improve.

The team discovers that one of the dogs suffers from vagina prolapse and a big tumour. The owner has been aware of her condition since at least 3-4 months, but has done nothing to ease her suffering. The team decides on her immediate confiscation. They also find a suspicious wire loop next to the dogs' pen. The owner openly admits that he uses this horrific device to pull the dogs out from their shelters because they are afraid of him. The team confiscates the loop and gives the farmer a regular dog lead instead, an item he seems to have never seen before.

The dog is taken to a vet clinic, where doctors decide on immediate surgery, which is complex and very costly.
