May 3rd is a national holiday in Poland, a day of celebration and pride in the country’s constitution. But for the DIOZ team, it was a day of tragedy and horror as they stumbled upon a farm that was a nightmare for the animals trapped there.
Behind the barns, hidden away from the public eye, was a scene of utter barbarism. The majority of Polish farms were described as “kaparnictwo,” meaning places of torment and execution for animals, a harsh indictment of the farming industry.
What the DIOZ team discovered was shocking and heartbreaking. A toddler dog was found chained on a short leash with an empty bowl under the agricultural machinery, without a kennel for shelter. The poor dog was scared, starved, and suffering from bloating and tension in his belly. His pitiful cries for help were heartbreaking.
The farm was a picture of neglect and cruelty. In the cowshed, rotting corpses of calves with their heads and legs cut off lay among the muck and filth. An illegal pig farm was also discovered, where animals were kept in their own excrement and ate each other. It was evident that all sanitary and veterinary regulations were being flouted in the name of greed and profit.
For the DIOZ team, there are no weekends or holidays. They work tirelessly to rescue and save animals from such atrocities. They fight for a better future for these innocent creatures who suffer unimaginable cruelty at the hands of humans.
The dogs found on the farm have been rescued, but the fate of the other animals remains uncertain. The Zgorzelec police are actively investigating the farm, and the DIOZ team is committed to bringing the perpetrators to justice. It is a long and difficult battle, but they will not rest until the animals are safe and protected.
The sad reality is that such farms exist in Poland, and the DIOZ team is continuously fighting against this injustice. They work tirelessly to rescue and rehabilitate animals, but the root of the problem lies in changing the farming practices in the country. It is a challenge that requires a concerted effort from all stakeholders – the government, farmers, and the public.
As the DIOZ team continues their fight, it is essential to remember the innocent victims of these atrocities. Animals are sentient beings that feel pain, fear, and love, just like humans. They deserve our respect, care, and protection, and we must work together to ensure a better future for them.
