Woman Caught Importing 3-Month-Old Puppies Illegally


A woman in her twenties from Haifa, who arrived yesterday on a flight from the Ukraine was caught by agricultural inspectors at Ben Gurion Airport with two French boxer puppies aged about three months. The dogs arrived without permits and without the required health certificates.

The woman claimed, during her investigation that her veterinarian in Ukraine gave her licenses and certificates of vaccination against rabies, although in fact the dogs were not vaccinated at all. She is suspected of forgery and defrauding the authorities, as well as a great risk in spreading rabies in Israel.
