Poland Charges Two With Animal Abuse Over ‘Nightmare’ Tiger Trip
November 4, 2019
Polish prosecutors said Monday they have charged two Italian truck drivers with animal abuse after the men took 10 tigers on a gruelling journey through Europe that left one tiger dead and the others “emaciated” and “without the will to live”.
The trip is believed to have been organised by Russian citizen Vakhitov F., whom prosecutors charged with animal abuse last week after the truck got stuck for days on the border with Belarus after setting off from Italy on October 22.
The nine tigers that survived the journey were taken in by two Polish zoos last week.
