Parliamentary question - P-005171/2012(ASW)Parliamentary question

Answer given by Mr Dalli on behalf of the Commission

To complement previous replies E‑011178/2011 and E‑001678/2012[1] on the subject, the Commission is aware of animal welfare problems related to the management of stray dogs in Ukraine.

Indeed, similar situations are reported in some Member States of the Union. However, since there is no EU competence on this matter, the Commission has never required any Member State to take action on this issue.

For the same reason, the Commission considers that it cannot take any action regarding a third country, either.
