東北地區賽鴿者稱英國脫歐後的規則具有 "破壞性

根據歐盟的規定,英國的鳥類現在必須有一個簽署的出口健康證書,才能參加跨海峽比賽。

Defra說它將 "繼續努力支持賽鴿界適應這些變化"。

在英國脫歐之前,愛好者可以在法國放飛他們的鴿子,但現在英國被列為第三國。

在完成對鴿子的檢查和對運輸條件的檢查後,該證書必須由經批准的獸醫簽署。

皇家賽鴿協會表示,自2021年新法規生效以來,它一直在 "努力遊說",但目前的解決方案 "遠遠不夠理想"。

它補充說,在去年錯過了一整個賽季後,參與程度 "非常非常小"。

Winlaton Homing Society的成員Todd先生說。"我們正在努力弄清楚為什麼會有這些新的規則,而從我有記憶以來,我們就一直在法國飛行。

"我認為,如果允許這種情況繼續下去,我認為它可能會對這項運動產生破壞性的影響"。

托德先生說,他認為這項運動因必須滿足歐盟的要求而成為 "受害者"。

皇家賽鴿協會首席執行官伊恩-埃文斯(Ian Evans)說,在每個比賽入口處都需要一名獸醫,這意味着在東北地區需要多達30-40個地點。

"我們經歷了很多Covid,大流行,來這些鴿子是在精神上穩定人們。我們只是愛我們的鴿子。

Defra說。"在我們的干預下,歐盟委員會修改後的出口健康證書已經允許跨海峽賽鴿活動恢復。需要由官方獸醫簽署的證書是歐盟的要求"。


Under EU rules, UK birds must now have a signed export health certificate before they can take part in trans-Channel races.

Defra says it will "continue to work to support the racing pigeon community as they adapt to these changes".

Before Brexit enthusiasts could release their birds in France, but Britain is now classed as a third country.

The certificate has to be signed by an approved vet after they have completed things like an examination of the birds and a check on transportation conditions.

The Royal Pigeon Racing Association, said it had been "lobbying hard" since new regulations came into force in 2021, but the solution at the moment is "far from ideal".

It added that the level of participation after missing a whole season last year, was "very, very small".

Mr Todd, a member of Winlaton Homing Society said: "We're trying to get our head round why these new rules have come in when we've flown in France as long as I can remember.

"I think if this is allowed to continue on at the level it's at now I think it could be devastating effects for the sport."

Mr Todd said he thought the sport was being "victimised" with the level of EU requirements they have to meet.

Ian Evans, chief executive of The Royal Pigeon Racing Association, said needing a vet at each race entry point could mean up to 30-40 locations in the North East.

"We went through a lot with Covid, the pandemic, and coming to these pigeons is mentally stabilising people. We just love our pigeons.

Defra said: "Following our interventions, the EU Commission's amended export health certificate has allowed cross channel pigeon racing to resume. The need for a certificate signed by an Official Vet is an EU requirement."
