Parliamentary questions
21 December 2012
E-008206/2012
Answer given by Mr Borg on behalf of the Commission

Implementation of the European Convention for the Protection of Pet Animals falls to the EU Member States. As there is no EU legislation as such on the mutilation of animals for aesthetic purposes, the matter remains under the competence of Member States.

With reference to the Parliament resolution of 4 July 2012 on the establishment of an EU legal framework for the protection of pets and stray animals, the Commission will follow up this non-legislative resolution of Parliament in accordance with the rules in force.
