Incredible: An illegal puppy trade was discovered – and that in the middle of the Graz settlement area, in Austria.
Nine puppies, some of whom were sick and who had probably been injected with sedatives, were carted from Serbia to Styria, Austria.
Shameful: People even came from other federal states to buy them.

The fact that the illegal puppy trade on the street was exposed at all is thanks to an attentive passer-by, who started the rescue chain for the poor puppies with his report to the active animal welfare organization.

Chef Charly Forstner is horrified: “The puppies were hypothermic and completely apathetic, later you found injections and sedatives in the car from Serbia. It turned out that they got away from their mother much too young, some had fevers, worms, skin diseases, undesirable developments due to insufficient supply. Even pneumonia. “
Almost unbelievable: People even came from other federal states to buy the cheap puppies in Graz!
“Anyone who buys or sells in this way is liable to prosecution,” says Alexandra Gruber, head of the Graz Veterinary Office, who courageously intervened.
And the expert clears up myths: “A cheap puppy can become expensive due to diseases and veterinary costs. In addition, it is irresponsible to buy an animal out of the trunk – please check beforehand where an animal comes from! “
Whoever acts like this supports suffering: “Animal factories in which boy for a boy are “produced” are shameful. Buyers support that. “
And I mean…Such abnormalities exist as long as there are no stricter controls and no high fines for traders who should go up to 30,000 euros.
Why wasn’t the seller stopped at the border?
Because our good-for-nothing leaders in high politics have no plan for anything and are not even able to get illegal trade with animals under control.
And last but not least: because there are mindless buyers who support this business with pride and ignorance!
My best regards to all, Venus
