NVWA more than 1,000 birds seized News item | 21-02-2017 | 13:45
Inspectors from the Dutch Food Safety Authority (NVWA) in collaboration with the police and the National Animal Protection Inspectorate (LID) a total of 1,087 birds seized before and during the bird market in Zwolle. NVWA charges have been made against three traders because they could not prove that the birds had been legally in their possession.
On Saturday, February 18 inspectors checked the bird market a Dutch trader in African birds. At his stall in his trailer and later at his home they found a total of 566 illegal birds. A day earlier surpassed inspectors during an inspection at the home of another Dutch merchant 514 illegal birds. In consultation with the prosecutor NVWA confiscated the animals and the official report drawn up by the merchants.
An Italian merchant trying to sell seven birds with modified leg rings on the market. The NVWA the animals confiscated and official report drawn up for violation of the law Nature. At the police station the man has accepted a settlement proposal of the prosecutor and € 450 paid.
Risk
There is a lively trade in African birds. They are often caught in the wild and through several routes smuggled into Europe. Many of these birds die on the road because the trip takes sometimes days. These birds are also not approved. Therefore, the risk that animal diseases also enter Europe with the smuggled animals and distributed. Therefore NVWA the confiscated birds quarantined with specialized storage containers.
Registration Inspectors NVWA have warned several hobby breeders in the market because they sold birds, but had not registered as a trader at the National Entrepreneurial Netherlands (RVO.nl). Which has been mandatory since 2014. You can register by requesting a Unique Business Number (UBN).
