By providing clarity, according to the decree of necessity must be considered when an animal has these symptoms related to disease states: severe trauma or disease with impairment of one or more vital functions that result in the inability to move independently without pain, presence of open wounds, bleeding, prolapse, altered state of consciousness and seizures, severe changes in heart rate or breathing.
The breakthrough was able to enter the presence of dedicated ambulances, with special instruments, and with the possibility in all respects of rapid transport via the flashing, but also the recognition of the private citizen who brings an animal accident in veterinary practice.
The decree, published in Official Gazette 217, it also revised the penal code n. 544 (killing animals).
It recalls that Article 544 provides that the mere omission of action is punishable by law, as the abandonment of the animal causes death by neglect and starvation.
With the entry into force of Law 120/2010 and its implementing decree, I mentioned before, which refers to the obligation of animal rescue injured or involved in accidents, this principle is further applied.
In fact, this guarantee provides a guarantee of the position of the driver of the vehicle involved in a traffic accident in respect of the animal involved and injured in the incident.
To explain it more simply, in the case of wrongful death will be answered not only the administrative violation specified in European Standard, m also number 544 cp in case of death of the animal and show that its failure to act is due ricollegabile the event of death.
A small step forward in short, for the rights of animals, in the hope that many other steps you can do in the near future.
