Report, 30 minutes.
Written and directed by Katrin Kammer
The animal rescue squad of Animal’s Angels patrol the highway. For hours they follow animal transports and control if the animals are correctly treated. Again and again they reveal extreme neglect. If they have found a suspect, they trace him at maximum speed,via the whole of Europe.
The Animal’s Angels’ goal is to stop the abuse of animals and abort unnecessary transports. They have not become friends with Europe’s cattle traders. Often they collaborate with the police, film undercover, despite murder threats.
Katrin Kammer has accompanied the Animal’s Angels on the highway while tracing transports, and an cattle markets in France, Germany and Belgium.
