Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 138
Aurelia Beigneux
 Subject: Trafficking of pets in the EU

The root cause of the trafficking of pets can be found partly in the principles of the free circulation of goods and persons – in other words, in what forms the foundation of the European Union.

It is also a significant source of income for organised crime.

The result has been the emergence of a veritable industry rearing young animals which are in poor health and face a cruel future.

Does the Commission really intend to take action to curb this parallel economy, given that the kind of fight this would entail implies directly calling into question the current economic model?
