Eco-inspectors filed a report with the police and prosecutor's office

In Odesa, eco-inspectors discovered a quarry where carcasses of goats, sheep and other livestock, as well as the remains of animals after slaughter, were dumped from a nearby farm.

To hide the cattle cemetery, farmers threw straw over the dead animals, the State Environmental Inspection of the Southwest District reported on Facebook.

It is noted that the cattle cemetery was discovered for the first time in September 2023. In October, eco-inspectors re-examined the quarry together with police officers, doctors, and representatives Bilyaiv city council and Yaskiv village council.

Eco-inspectors submitted a statement to the police about violation of the requirements of environmental protection legislation. And they also sent a notification about the commission of a criminal offense to the Bilyaiv district prosecutor's office.

"We expect appropriate measures to be taken by law enforcement agencies to stop such activities that cause damage to the surrounding natural environment, and to bring the guilty parties to justice," the press service said.

Earlier, EcoPolitic wrote, that in the Lviv region, the court fined a resident of the village of Boyanets 20,400 hryvnias for dumping animal remains in an illegal cattle burial ground on the outskirts of the forest.

As EcoPolitic previously reported, the director of a meat processing plant from the Volodymyr district will be tried in Volyn, who organized the dumping of waste from animal carcasses in a forest strip near the village of Ozyutichi.
