The mission of the Animal Welfare Unit
is to improve the welfare of animals in Europe and abroad through policy initiatives in particular for farmed animals, prepare EU legislation, perform studies and promote research programs and scientific reviews as well as raise awareness among groups such as farmers, citizens and consumers and develop international cooperation.
Officers from the animal welfare unit
- who normally deal with dog fighters and badger baiters - want to quiz butcher Adrian Walker about his brutal methods.
Dubai Municipality takes a serious view of such incidents and, where required, will refer such cases to the police, said Adil Al Badri, head of the animal welfare unit
of Dubai Municipality.
