Animal welfare in EU farming: New scrutiny over suffering of livestock

Description

Each year, a billion poultry birds and tens of millions of other farm animals are transported within and outside of the EU to be bred from, fattened or slaughtered. Regulations on how that transportation happens do exist, but scores of breaches of those regulations have been documented in official audits carried out by the European Commission in recent years.

  • Animal welfare in farming: Europeans demand higher standards

    This week, we're focusing on animal welfare in farming. Here in France, nine out of 10 people declare that animal welfare is important to them and lifestyles are changing too. Two-thirds of French people say they've reduced their overall meat intake, while more people have been eating organic and locally produced food during the Covid-19 pandemic. Right now, questions about intensive farming of animals are becoming even more pressing during the pandemic. This after a mutant form of the coronavirus was found in mink on Danish fur farms, sparking the cull of millions of the animals there.

  • Ce train est le premier TGV à concurrencer la SNCF en France

    TRANSPORT - Pour un premier voyage sans encombre face au TGV de la SNCF, la compagnie italienne Trenitalia aligne des prix bas, des fauteuils de cuir et des machines à café de compétition. Partie à 7h26 de la Gare de Lyon à Paris, la Frecciarossa (flèche rouge) 9281 est arrivée à Lyon à 9h18 le samedi 18 décembre, avec deux minutes d’avance, avant de poursuivre son chemin jusqu’en Italie. Pas de drapeaux ni de sirènes syndicales au départ pour protester contre l’arrivée sur les rails français du premier train à grande vitesse en concurrence frontale avec la SNCF. Seul problème, technique: les écrans de la gare ne peuvent pas encore afficher le logo rouge de Trenitalia. “Le train est plein”, se réjouit Roberto Rinaudo, le directeur général de Trenitalia France (ex-Thello). Un effet de curiosité, des prix attractifs et aussi la peur de la grève SNCF, finalement évitée in extremis, ont attiré les clients. ----- Abonnez-vous à la chaîne YouTube du HuffPost dès maintenant : https://www.youtube.com/c/lehuffpost Pour plus de contenu du HuffPost: Web: https://www.huffingtonpost.fr/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/LeHuffPost/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/LeHuffPost Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/lehuffpost/ Pour recevoir gratuitement notre newsletter quotidienne: https://www.huffingtonpost.fr/newsletter/default/
