Rimini Dolphinarium convicted of animal abuse

Image courtesy: LAVSix years ago DFE members, LAV commenced a case against Rimini dolphinarium following reports of mistreatment of their dolphins. Today LAV has announced that the facility’s vet and director has been found guilty of animal abuse.

This is the first sentence of its kind in not only Italy, but Europe, and we very much welcome this move towards better protection for animals facing abuse in marine parks and zoos.  Congratulations to our colleagues on bringing this case to court and achieving a successful verdict.
