Q: Lars Patrick Berg (IDG, GER) - Illegal trade in puppies (2019-11-22)

What was the extent (estimated figures) of the illegal trade in puppies in the EU Member States in 2017, 2018 and 2019, and what profits accrued to the (organised) criminal groups involved?

From what parts of the world and third countries do the puppies come (please give figures)?

In what way is the lack of border controls boosting the illegal trade in puppies?
