Procedure at Inquiries


Should a veterinarian be involved in the transportation of any animals, whether at departure, arrival or transit, it is advisable for the veterinarian to discuss the route and mode of transport used, feasible for the species of animal being transported, with the owners and transport company to ensure any possible hazards are avoided and such regrettable and negligent incidents that occurred with the giraffe are prevented in future.
