go to the streets of ferraro the capital here life goes on as normal and it's a lot of indifference. but when there is have been there been a dispute over where exactly robert mugabe's remains would be laid to rest how was that ultimately resolved. so the guy who was supposed to lay to rest at the hero's acre here in howrah as a national hero but then the family protest of they say they were not being taken into consideration by the government and now it will take 30 more days on civil gabo will finally be buried what that shows is a strong rift between the mugabe side and the current government because we have to remember 2 years ago when mugabe was basically kicked out of the office by the military but also by parts of his very own party they back then said that this is not an action against mugabe but it's against corrupt people around him and they even gave him impunity ends of pension but mugabe took that as very bitter that's what his family members kept on saying he was not happy about that last year in the

4:22 pm
frightens me bob nearly 90 percent of genius in surveyed say that this stuff is tied with politics but now everyone has given up more and more people have registered to vote in the last few weeks perhaps this is also due to the chair initiative which was launched by the president where young activists advertise the parliamentary system to other young people. like him but he made a comment that was a then we ask people what they would do if they were charged then we tell them where the election is important look at people need to understand what the president does want to parliament does politics you're no longer be a mystery to them and that i used to shop shelley by michelle sherman will pick up the wall. one topic that continues to puzzle is the outcome of the elections 26 candidates compete with very different profiles in goals according to polls no individual party can count on a majority the 2 top drunk candidates will probably have to face a runoff fight. a quick reminder now of our top story.

4:29 pm
these cheap inflatable boats are not made to last and sometimes sink after days out at sea. even if kai and his crew managed to spot a boat in distress it doesn't mean the passengers will be brought to safety due to a crackdown on n.g.o.s there are very few rescue boats left on the water and merchant vessels try to avoid the affected area all together often the libyan coast guard is the last resort for kay and his colleagues this is a frustrating experience for the guy that's because as long as ships are being feast rescue capacities are being cut somewhere the only ones keeping an eye on the water we have to deal with situations like this. we're back on the ground where exactly we cannot say. much here are aware that there are organizations activities are being closely monitored since the government such as italy have started to crack down on rescue n.g.o.s see watch faces public criticism and accusations that they are aiding people smugglers. a claim that most vigorously

4:39 pm
welcome to another exciting edition of euro max i'm your host meghan lee here's a look at what else we've got coming up. classic cars move into my day interview with the electric motor. and hat's off to a small region in italy that is big on track making. the 1st one to bring attention to climate change well perhaps by transforming a studio or a soccer stadium into a forest around 300 trees were brought in from nurseries not here of course and planted in a stadium in austria in a bid to make a statement against global warming and deforestation well the artist of this installation believes that if change doesn't happen now in the future we will only be able to see forests in zoom like environment.
4:40 pm
anyone expecting to see penalties at the vet as the stadium captain floats will be in for a bit of a surprise there's not much soccer going on in this forest. for his project the swiss artist was inspired by a drawing by the austrian artist. called the an ending attraction. basically what i'm doing here is trying to produce a quite radical picture and i'm dealing with an underlying theme that max planck now also have both of us independently of each other and that's perception. how do we deal with our perceived nature. visitors are not allowed to touch or enter the forest only look at. that money to create
4:41 pm
a warning monument about the climate crisis it took him 6 years to realize the 4 forest project. he worked together with the swiss landscape architect and so in the. lines of the scene at the scene these are the difference of bases here. those there are the black pines you know. they've been replanted 16 tiles. 299 trees were planted between the goal posts creating a mixed forest which has become quite rare in europe these days the trees were located in various german french and italian nurseries some of them were 50 years old all the trees had been transplanted several times so they could cope before being transported the roots were pruned and bound together into a ball then they were fixed into the ground thus the trees will survive without
4:42 pm
damage to the roots. the focal sorts of things and so it was very difficult for me to find a proportion to the stadium because at 1st i couldn't imagine how it would be. so then i imagined footballers playing there about 1.8 meters tall on average and then i imagine them passing balls to each other long shots hard shots. and the stadium boasts $30000.00 seats and just as many ways of seeing the forest visitors to the forest can either sit or wander around the rows. whose artworks also feature in new york's museum of modern art is the visionary who imagined a stadium forest over 40 years ago. but his was not a wild mixed forest. but if you see
4:43 pm
a story those are great that the forest is different from mine on my way over here i was really scared that they had managed to capture my forest but now. i'm really glad that they do it. in the photos seem nice to. the artwork was financed privately including by collectors and this was fun. klaus littman had discovered the stadium in 2013 and persuaded the city of camden for it to agree to his idea. the project has both supporters and critics say. it's exactly what we need in order to think about the climate change problem that we have right now. i think it's nonsense to be honest this doesn't belong in a football stadium. and it's a warning monument it's huge parts of the amazon forest have burnt down recently because of deforestation and this project shows how important a forest and its function is. there are 2 different reasons. for forest is
4:44 pm
a sustainable project visitors can enjoy it until the end of october the stadium opens till late at night afterwards the trees will be transplanted again and will set down their roots not far away for the long term. it's that time of year again when cars take center stage at the international auto show in frankfurt now much of the focus is on promoting electric cars but what do you do if you have a vintage a vehicle but still runs on an old catalytic converter well even these old cars are being brought into the era of electric mobility. not all vintage cars have to be noisy and smelly duke leaman is enjoying a new experience his steam powered car from 1938 now has an electric
4:45 pm
motor this although this car is 80 years old and now it's experiencing a revival we can enjoy the landscape. very quietly my intention is not to change the climate with my cars i couldn't do that but i'm sending out a signal that's come on they're going to be showing people that it is possible to make changes if you really want to. understand. could this become a trend. has developed a business model in vincent not far from hamburg in northern germany old cars are equipped with modern technology each model is individually fitted with the right components such a conversion can cost up to 100000 euros as an enthusiastic they're enthusiastic who really want to drive fully electric cars but there was nothing on offer except a boring tesla motors which is like a moving i pad that's how we began in 2015 for people who wanted a car that they really liked. all of these models are unique. but not everyone is
4:46 pm
convinced about retrofitting vintage cars console a car drives a benz victoria from 894 that makes it one of the oldest cars in the world he can't imagine fitting it with an electric motor. it would be more than a sin it would be irresponsible ignorance. and think it would be showing disrespect for the past simply replacing it with something new and annoying you would be castrating the vehicle so to speak. for many collectors these cars are an investment and their value is measured by how close they are to the original. post and younger from berlin has created an index to determine how the price of a car should be evaluate it. can see a pair of in principle the value of a vintage car would sink because it would no longer be historical of the value is only particularly high if
4:47 pm
a car still boasts the original engine and original gear unit orders but doesn't an old car with a new motor remain an old car for a collector. such as philip but johnny absolutely not he would never swap the gasoline engine from his 970 s. b.m.w. . but redefining it out of that would be like taking out the car's heart. engine is the heart of the b.m.w. it would be like hauling it out and it would be removing the cars art and probably it sold to. that's how it's done for them. and he's not worried about the fact that gasoline engines might eventually. make you if your car is with gasoline engines are banned and i'll just let it stand somewhere. and it will be of cultural value and just stay in one place. would. be hard so mark no it was just what i like about old cars is that they represent
4:48 pm
a certain period in time and i can experience the history firsthand i'm not in a museum i can really feel how it was at the time just would not support you don't need to rattle the engine but you can still feel how it was to drive with the springs imprecise steering and the way it looks to. the engine no longer has to rattle it can simply current thanks to the motors even vintage cars can be state of the art. time now to take a trip and europe is great for weekend getaways but how do you decide what to do when you only have a couple days to sightsee well leave it up to me to give you some tips on my latest perfect weekend away i visited iceland capital reykjavik and its surroundings now

5:10 pm
this is just one of several protests planned for today on congress in its 4th month of pro-democracy demonstrations they were initially launched to oppose a controversial extradition bill that had since live and to demand free elections in the specially administered territory. while i spoke a short while ago to w.'s cheery chant in hong kong i asked her to describe the scene on the ground. what. i saw there are a lot of confrontations between whole police supporters and pro-democracy protesters and 1st of all they were all in the shopping mall and then they had some confrontations with each other and then clashes broke out and then riot police arrived and they actually have arrest the circle pro-democracy protests. chariot we
5:11 pm
have been seeing clashes between the pro-democracy protesters and police over the last several weeks but now these violent clashes between pro-democracy protesters and probe asia supporters seems to be a new escalation isn't. excellent this is not really a new escalation confrontations and conflicts between the 2 groups have always existed but then they don't always appear in the same location so we don't see a lot of pictures where they clash or feature though or have arguments but today. because the pro-democracy protesters they knew that this probe a change supporters would be in this shopping mall so they planned to come here to have concept protests and show their support for the protesters and that's why the 2 groups meets here today and the clashes broke out. while the pro-democracy protesters had said that they intended to keep the demonstrations peaceful so what
5:12 pm
sparked the violence. right so that they have always planted it to be peaceful but then that but that whenever they see a probate change supporters is that the boat that they are clashing with each other . because when they enforce that what is the focus. and that. that that's. right thank you thank you thank you thank you so you can see that that approach pro-democracy protests as they are really trying to get international attention. well cherry yes indeed and where you are is not the only location where protests will be taking place in hong kong what else is going on in the city today. and today there are several day from protests in different shopping malls in
5:13 pm
different districts they say also shopping protests in the process about but actually entering this weekend the biggest protests is tomorrow the sunday protest actually yesterday when we were on the street with the protests as we also hear them calling everyone to join the protest tomorrow although the protest has been banned tomorrow by the police but then these protests essays they still said that they will go on the streets anyway. to the west cherry chant reporting for us from hong kong thank you so much. to them bob way now where tens of thousands of people have gathered for the state funeral of former leader robert mugabe ceremony in the capital harare is being held at the national sports stadium which can seat up to 60000 people many current and former african leaders are in attendance who got the rules and bob wait for 37 years after becoming the country's 1st leader
5:14 pm
following white minority rule he was ousted by his own military in 2017 and died in a singapore hospital last week at the age of 95. w n n clichy is at the venue in harare he gave us a sense of the ceremony which closes a chapter in zimbabwe's history. well thousands of people are celebrating right now inside the stadium celebrating the life of former president robert mugabe about 10 african heads of states also here. but it's also not a side of the story because the stage is basically house empty and this shows that a lot of zimbabweans are rather indifferent about what is happening if you go to the streets of ferrara the capital here life goes on as normal and it's lost indifference. but even there is have been and then been in dispute over where exactly robert mugabe is remains would be laid to rest and how was that ultimately
5:15 pm
resolved. so it was supposed to lay to rest at the hero's acre here in howrah as a national hero but then the family protested they say they were not being taken into consideration by the government and now it will take 30 more days on civil gobbler will finally be buried what that shows is a strong rift between the mugabe side and the current government because we have to remember 2 years ago when mugabe was basically kicked out of the office by the military but also by parts of his very own party they back then said that this is not an action against mugabe but it's against corrupt people around him and they even gave him impunity and to pension but mugabe took that as very bitter that's what his family members kept on saying he was not happy about that last year in the elections even advice to supporters not to vote for the governing party so this whole dispute about whether god will be laid to rest really shows a good division that you can that is still visible here in zimbabwe or around the ruling party we mentioned already there are many people paying tribute to one copy
5:16 pm
others are just staying away he was of course of very controversial figure so what kind of legacy does he mean. well absolutely on the one hand he is seen as a liberation hero somebody who fought the white minority rule but then there's also this other side of the story of robert mugabe who basically run down this country in the almost 40 years of his presidency the economy went completely down it is still struggling a quote. so if zimbabweans left the country because of this of course we also sued must remember the human rights abuses that were committed under his watch. in harare thank you. our that's going to check now some of the other stories making news around the world yemen based who the rebels have claimed responsibility for drone attacks on to keep oil facilities in eastern saudi arabia the saudi interior

5:21 pm
very frustrating it's all about internal power struggles and accusations that frightens me bob nearly 90 percent of teen is in surveyed say that dissatisfied with politics but not everyone has given up more and more people have registered to vote in the last few weeks perhaps this is also due to the chair initiative which was launched by the president where young activists advertise the parliamentary system to other young people. like him but he made a comment that was it then we asked people what they would do if they were in charge then we tell them where the election is apart and look at people need to understand what the president does want to parliament does then politics you're no longer be a mystery to them and that i use stops tell me about my mission up someone will pick up the wall. one topic that continues to puzzle is the outcome of the elections 26 candidates compete with very different profiles and goes according to polls no individual party can count on

5:30 pm
human beings can do is and is the hatred that's in our heart and cross that fire metaphorically. my own doesn't stop it from might i say. look you know this because to my heart was always india pakistan so i would write blogs and i would write stories and i would interact with people and just slowly i became part of these into 5 groups and slowly have became part of these unnamed movements in forums. social media is that platform when i can get out to people if it was just so many people i might have seen you get knowledge and i'm strange and look at numbers i'm quite surprised but i also understand it's
5:31 pm
a lot of responsibility. and we saw that camp. and somebody wears a right wing mostly fig one black card from my radio to make a point that i am an anti national. human being and i have anti
5:32 pm
national tendencies because i asked for peace with pakistan. i wasn't mentally prepared for the kind of over true. that came after i posted but the chinese he thought that no one was going to notify because you would do something for us so the next day i wake up everyone has acted all the new styles are calling me that came as a shock. when i had a call to a young student of little college was ignited a fiery debate on social media and beyond on nationalism and free speech dr many at the time was to believe that whole debate really did up getting i'll leave it to pakistan. she wants peace with pakistan and she did so after the war then became national news after van was on every single prime time and it was a very very very scary time my phone was hard because there were so many messages coming back to back. and the strangest thing is that when all the messages of hate
5:33 pm

5:34 pm
important that you look within and see what kind of conversations we want to put forward especially when the position of influence and i think i'm very glad. that i learned. your position up and through and skin. because somebody else's position off influenced. stand so much of hatred towards me now i well i'm not i'm not as popular as the actor or the cricket field but i do understand that i am in a position where i can change a lot of mindset so i'm what am i going to do with it i'm going to do with it to spread the love. so many people are michael so we get knowledge and i'm saying then look at the numbers i'm quite.
5:35 pm
pretty mulu because it's so easy just so many people out there surprising that the amount of numbers that i can reach out to the world it's response it's a lot of responsibility but then it gives me it gives me hope neston or that all the thoughts that i have in my head i can just go out and share it with people and i am hoping that. it does it doesn't it does some bit of good to see you on in the work.
5:36 pm

age of 9 to find. ways 1st president after applying to minority rule but people were saw multiple times in the economy and society. was tunisia is where the 2011 arab spring began to trust democracy has not been easy for the country and tunisian voters head to the polls on sunday's 1st snap presidential election nearly 90 percent of state they're fed up with politics. i'm married to evanston it's good to have you with this approach democracy protest in hong kong has been disrupted by counter-demonstrators waving chinese flags and sit in at a shopping mall in the chinese territory became the scene of violent clashes when pro beijing activists confronted the demonstrators.
6:10 pm
this is just one of several protests planned for today on congas in its work month of proto mock received demonstrations they were initially launched to oppose a controversial extradition bill that have since live and to demand free elections in the specially administered territory. when i spoke a short while ago to w.'s cheery chand in hong kong i asked her to describe the scene on the ground. what. i saw there are lots of confrontations between paul police supporters and pro-democracy protesters and 1st of all they were all in the shopping mall and then they had some confrontations with each other and then pleasures broke out and then riot police arrived and they actually have arrest the surf a roll pro-democracy protests. cherry we have been seeing clashes between the pro-democracy
6:11 pm
protesters and police over the last several weeks but now these violent clashes between pro-democracy protesters and prob asia supporters seems to be a new escalation isn't. actually this is not really a new escalation confrontation and conflicts between the 2 groups have always existed but then they don't always appear in the same location so we don't see a lot of pictures where they clash with each other or have arguments but today. because the pro-democracy protesters they knew that this probe a change supporters would be in this shopping mall so they planned to come here to have counts of protests and show their support for the protesters and that's why they had the 2 groups meet here today and the clashes broke out. while the pro-democracy protesters had said that they intended to keep the demonstrations
6:12 pm
peaceful so what sparked the violence. right so all that they have always planted there to be peaceful and that but they whenever they see probating supporters is in the boat that they are clashing with each other. because when they enforce that what is the focus. and that. ad. that. right thank you thank you thank you thank you and so you can see that of that approach pro-democracy protests as they are really trying to get into motion attention. well cherry yes indeed and where you are is not the only location where protests will be taking place in hong kong what else is going on in the city today. and today there are several different protests in different shopping malls in
6:13 pm
different districts they may also protests in other parts as well but actually at during this week a the biggest protests is tomorrow the sunday protest actually yesterday when we were on the streets with the protesters we also hear that calling everyone to join the protest tomorrow although the protest has been banned tomorrow by the police but then these protests essays they still said that they will go on the streets anyway. today was cherry chant reporting for us from hong kong thank you so much. to zimbabwe now where tens of thousands of people have gathered for the state funeral of former leader robert mugabe ceremony in the capital harare is being held at the national sports stadium which can seat up to 60000 people many current and former african leaders are in attendance gobby rules and bob wait for 37 years after becoming the country's 1st leader following white minority rule he was ousted
6:14 pm
by his own military in 2017 and died in a singapore hospital last week at the age of 95. the deadliest in clichy is at the venue in harare he gave us a sense of the ceremony which closes a chapter in zimbabwe's history. well thousands of people are celebrating right now inside the stadium celebrating the life of former president robert mugabe about 10 african heads of states all so he bites it's also 3 another side of the story because the stadium is basically house empty and this shows that a lot of zimbabweans are rather indifferent about what is happening if you go to the streets of ferrara the capital here life goes on as normal and it's a lot of indifference. but when there is have been and then been a dispute over where exactly robert mugabe's remains would be laid to rest and how was that ultimately resolved. so the guy was supposed to lay to
6:15 pm
rest at the hero's acre here in howrah as a national hero but then the family protested they say they were not being taken into consideration by the government and now it will take 30 more days on civil gabo will finally be buried what that shows is a strong rift between the mugabe side and the current government because we have to remember 2 years ago when we got it was basically kicked out of the office by the military but also by parts of his very own party they back then said that this is not an action against mugabe have but it's against corrupt people around him and they even gave him impunity and a pension but mugabe took that as very bitter that's what his family members kept on saying he was not happy about that last year in the elections even advised to support us not to vote for the governing party so this whole dispute about whether god will be laid to rest really shows a good division that you can that is still visible here in zimbabwe or around the ruling party we mentioned already there are many people paying tribute to one copy
6:16 pm
others are just staying away he was of course of very controversial figure so what kind of legacy does he mean. well absolutely on the one hand he is seen as a liberation hero somebody who fought the white minority rule but then this also this up. side of the story of robert mugabe who basically run down this country in the almost 40 years of his presidency the economy when it's completely down it is still struggling a quarter of the left the country because of this of course we also sued must remember the human rights abuses that were committed under his watch to increase in harare thank you. are that get a check now some of the other stories making news around the world yemen based who the rebels have claimed responsibility for drone attacks on to keep oil facilities in eastern saudi arabia the saudi interior ministry says huge fires at the science

a poll of probs what i'm going to talk to a lot of young people i'm not that old i enjoy it but i tell them how much we used to dream about democracy i ask them what they dream of today and how we can make their dreams come true when assad from using them and one of somehow. most people are probably dreaming of getting a good job. about one 3rd of young chinese inns are unemployed especially university graduates a most of them want to emigrate. in the inhuman of the 2 things are important the presidential candidates must 1st recognize this problem and secondly actually solve it and if we can't meet the expectations of our young people soon it will be a serious threat to our country i knew i had i would see instead of working toward strengthening the economy politicians only care about themselves says couto dasi for years she's been at the forefront of the youth movement and now she wants to boycott the election but said beneath the fan of the ethics of the political class
6:21 pm
very frustrating it's all about internal power struggles and accusations that frightens me baba nearly 90 percent of china's in surveyed say that dissatisfied with politics but not everyone has given up more and more people have registered to vote in the last few weeks perhaps this is also due to the chair initiative which was launched by the president where young activists advertise the parliamentary system to other young people. like him but he might like someone that was a then we ask people what they would do if they were in charge then we tell them where the election is important look at people need to understand what the president does want to parliament does then politics you're no longer a mystery to them and that i used to shop shama bhana mission up challenge go play the game go all. one topic that continues to puzzle is the outcome of the elections 26 candidates compete with very different profiles and goals according to polls no individual party can count on

6:25 pm
the police movin up animal welfare arrest steffen clips time seen here on the left witnesses scenes like this almost daily. and that. he finds suspicious ads on the internet and alerts the police. did mind the illegal trade in dogs is a multi-billion euro business. steffen clip stein is an expert in the dog trade he came across this little montes on the internet and informed the police for over 5 years now the volunteer animal welfare arrest has been rescuing dogs from smugglers. and if you haven't this is another
6:26 pm
typical added to go for the dogs presented by itself on a soap on as bad i have a mission in the war respectable dog breeder would never present his dog like that and even the $500.00 euro price is way too cheap from a regular breeder it would cost from 121200 euros if the one told intelligence well not all. on these operations cliff stein always works with the decoys a fake buyer. his face is now too well known among the dog to herself not lawful so a friend is helping out on this one the. became a home very important ask the dog really comes from serbia you've seen it before you've already done this many times the betting district is a hotbed of the illegal dog trade that's another clue we see that here all the time i hope it isn't somebody we already know. me to but we'll handle it.
6:27 pm
that way i'm a. hunch was right on the buyers turn out to be illegal dog dealers with a long records they're placed under arrest. i'm right there. in front of the movie and there was a part is when you think it could spin out of control and you're waiting for the police to help you feel in point 00. 000. he's got a bad eye infection and the ears are totally sore. they washed him today didn't a good motive wash with mom yes they did he smells like dog shampoo. and the dealers always do that so the dogs will smell and look better for the buyers. the dog is probably 8 to 10 weeks old and he shouldn't even be in germany and up for sale here because of. puppies may only be exported to other e.u.
6:28 pm
member states after 15 weeks of age before that they have to get all required vaccinations for their own health and to keep from spreading diseases forceable and the next day we meet stefan in a cafe in berlin he didn't want to be filmed at home eventually smugglers have attacked him many times and even seriously injured him. over here but you were kind and so if you look through a big classifieds you'll find over 16000 ads for dogs for sale. and that's just on e bay just on e bay. there are various other sites that also after ties pets for sale in this are the most and if you include all of europe living doesn't the one from her millions of dogs are sold every year the profit margin is very wide because the dogs can be bought in eastern europe very cheap and then sold for 3 to 4 times as much here. and i'd say 8 out of 10 ads on
6:29 pm
e bay classifieds are from disreputable dealers trading in dogs illegally covered $100.00. 1 the figures from the german animal welfare association will show that most of the puppies export it illegally from eastern europe are taken to germany the main country of origin for the smugglers is romania there are the dogs smugglers employ another scam they smuggle stray dogs instead of pedigree canines to germany and often through dubious animal welfare organizations or private individuals. it may sound improbable can you make money with stray dogs hundreds of thousands live in the streets i can collect them from there or from animal shelters they even get them for free with them in germany they'd have to pay a token charge they sell them here. and cash in big on people's compassion. animal welfare arrests estimate that europe's illegal dog trade now brings in
6:30 pm
billions of euros almost as much as the narcotics trade. course that isn't always going to use it so this comes on the foreign animal protection agencies are very different from anyone acting against them or exposing their illegal doings as persecuted stalked and slandered from there so people know the smugglers will bring a mountain of trouble down on that out of. romania. here stray dogs are a major problem hardly anyone looks after them and they're either put to sleep or smuggled to germany diseased and abused. right here mario takes on the smugglers at the opposite end of the criminal network he files complaints on lobbies to have the laws changed he's also experienced physical attacks by the smugglers.
6:31 pm
and i think that. over time he became ever more involved in the work eventually quitting his job and opening an animal shelter for the rescued dogs he takes the badly injured ones home to care for them personally. among them is the sheep dog corbucci his previous owner chopped off all his paws with a hatchet after the starving dog killed and ate a chicken the cruel owner was only panelized with a find. people who are making. smugglers tossed costy into
6:32 pm
a garbage can when animal welfare asst expose them but now cost he is master of the house. pictures of neglected dogs can also be turned into money self professed animal welfare residents in germany work together with middlemen in romania to collect massive donations on the internet most of them over facebook they set a vast money machine in motion. slipping out of them live with the rescue was right i need money for the transport and the germans italians and english stop folk it's over. pretty soon the smugglers get a few 1000 euros together while they transport the dogs to a shelter where they start the search for more sponsors. the same ones who've already donated send even more money then comes the next stage money allegedly needed for vaccinations classes and so on. so they rake in even more probably
6:33 pm
222-5000 euros for 30 to 40 dogs. that's quite a sum and a business that both police and in their herd and observers are acquainted with officially about 5000 stray dogs are taken out of romania across the hungary and border daily the true figure may be far higher. e.u. regulations require a chip implanted in every exploited dog the data are entered into the e.u. data bank system allowing for verification of previous owners and vaccinations corrupt veterinarians willing to issue false papers are vital to the dog smugglers a veterinarian from romania has agreed to talk about the corrupt system she asks to remain anonymous. she says i've gotten several requests to issue traces certification without actually having seen the animals
6:34 pm
they basically wanted to give me a list of chips so that i provide passports papers and traces in return for cash i refused to accept those offers the vaccinations are also fake they have spread disease all over europe. stephan clip stein is acquainted with this practice having worked for some time in an animal shelter now he has an office job and spends most of his free time helping animals his interest goes back to his childhood days. i found my calling in combating these dealers and taking action to stop with them of course it's nice to work at a shelter but these animals keep showing up no fundamental changes are made because people aren't informed and don't push the government to make those changes and to uproot it. for the. time is lobbying for official support he needs with cure involved animal welfare expert for the c.d.u. in berlin. it is
6:35 pm
a major problem is that animals are increasingly being sold under the pretense of animal welfare many from romania they say they're rescuing stray dogs then for a fee of $60.00 or 70 dogs are referred over facebook to owners who know nothing about them and some companies are even specializing in shipping them on mass from eastern europe to germany. or one of those lines a point this is nice of you to help but this is actually a matter for the states the threat of prosecution has to be that i suggest each district gets its own animal welfare department exclusively for this instead of leaving it to the food inspectors if you want to know your secret one of them secret all sister with your sister here they are with you as an animal welfare arrest i often have to call the police myself research and document cases the veterinary office does it half heartedly. they say they weren't there to see it even though it was their job and they can't impose any fines because they don't know the facts i get the impression there's no will to take action if. it
6:36 pm
doesn't click stein has his own dog but he spends less time with it then he'd really like to leave. the country if you assume it's good to see a happy dog and a nice home but i know that millions of dogs live in the streets or in pens half dead puppies are sold over e-bay and if they don't sell they land in the garbage can. that outrages them frustrates me that this animal trade on the internet still hasn't been prohibited limits your help with the move. it is already prohibited in austria and switzerland but that's not likely to happen in germany any time soon and so months for months several 1000000 euros disappear into smugglers pockets for dogs from eastern europe.

machine ever. if you know him as well as she down under a of wolf is an expert on alexander from whom bob's life and adventures her biography reintroduced the great naturalist to a new generation of readers and now the world is marking his 250th birthday we made out with andrea wulf at the royal institution in london one of britain's foremost establishment for scientific education and research. will spend over a decade on the traces of alexander for home bolt she's written 2 books about him
6:40 pm
including an illustrated album about his famous expedition to south and central america it depicts the hardships he endured but also his fascinating encounters and discoveries and it includes his drawings which fundamentally changed europe's view of the americas. you alexander for whom boyd was for sure one of the greatest scientists of previous times of all times when he was the most famous scientist of his time and i think he's undergoing a little bit of a renaissance at the moment i think quite rightly so because i think his views. how he brings together the arts and the science how he says that we need to use our imagination and our feelings to nature i think are very relevant today as we are dealing with climate change so no one dares to talk about the the
6:41 pm
world of nature of the beauty of nature the vulnerable beauty of our planet and i think that something that homework that. something we could get a bit of that we could probably use today. alexander was born to wealthy parents in berlin in 769 after a brief career working for the pression government he used his inheritance to embark on the adventure of a lifetime and set off for america at the age of almost 30 accompanied by the french explorer and botanist anybody who traveled to venice while up and from there to cuba colombia peru mexico and ecuador he collected plants specimens observed animals and became the 1st european to almost reach the peak of the chimborazo volcano in the n.d.s. at the time it was thought to be the highest mountain in the world to row $29.00 for about history he really cultivated this image of
6:42 pm
the daring adventure he was he was the best. publicist to machine ever he would write letters from south america long letters to his friends and then he would end them saying i don't mind if you send them to the newspaper so by the time he returns everybody has heard about his adventure so it's very much part of his self promotion. bolt is believed to have written a total of $30000.00 letters luckily for him he was exempted from paying postage by the prussians post a minister. he documented his adventures in the letters and his notebooks describing how his boat capsized on the are no co river and he own most drowned talking about the tough hikes and the damage to his feet the various diseases and the mosquitoes. but he also praised the natural beauty and the cultural wealth of the countries he visited.
6:43 pm
returned from latin america with a completely new portray of the ancient civilizations so he explained that these ancient south american civilization had been very sophisticated cultures with rich languages and with sophisticated architecture and he then in turn influenced many many scholars who began to study them his contemporaries the great german writer johann vulcan from gertrude delighted in his intellectual exchanges with whom he once said in 8 days of reading books you couldn't learn as much as what he tells you in an hour. u.s. president thomas jefferson met several times and maintained a correspondence with him for years. i consider him the most important scientist whom i have met. the english naturalist charles darwin
6:44 pm
is said to have been inspired by whom both while writing his most famous book. on the origin of species alexander from humbled was the greatest scientific traveler who ever lived. europeans have really looked down on the new world and then there's a there's another argument where you can say that he was he had a very strong influence on scene one would have are they met in paris and agent for just one home returned and one of our later set that home was woke up south americans with his pen so was home alone i think so ho almost descriptions of latin america west so vivid and so beautiful he gave the colonists the confidence to fight their fight of independence. this soldier and statesman simone boulevard was instrumental in liberation latin american countries
6:45 pm
from spanish control. alexander from home world is the true discoverer of america his studies did more for america than the action of all the congress before his expedition to south america to the us of a tribal permission from the spanish team and received a passport for the colonies but he was shocked by how arrogant and brutal the colonial rulers were towards the indigenous peoples was he aware of his own privileges as a wealthy european. i don't know if he would see it as we see it today we have to always bear in mind these historic figures that they live in their times what i can say is that he was unlike other europeans who traveled through south america so unlike other europeans he did not see the indigenous people for example as savages or as barbaric. quite the
6:46 pm
opposite so he was he respected them he would use them as their guides and he very quickly realized that they were. that they could navigate the jungle in a completely different way so he described them as the best observers of nature as the best geography lesson ever met he also collected all their languages and later said there is there's not a language in south america through which we could not express an abstract philosophical european concept. yet when he set off on his 1st major expedition on the orinoco one of south america's longest rivers ignored the protests of his local guides and dug up skulls in a burial ground in the name of science. bolt was a man of his time he was committed to the enlightenment but he was also obsessive puja voted to his research and could also be inconsiderate of others as well as of himself. he pushed himself to his limits he was not well prepared
6:47 pm
when he set off to climb chimborazo the soles of his shoes were far too thin and he had no gloves his feet was soon blistered and bloody but he almost made it to the top to an altitude of $5917.00 made his. no european had ever made it that far. made drawings of everything that he observed so he could show others later. his famous cross sectional diagram of chimborazo sheds light on different climate and vegetation zones and gives an insight into his understanding of nature. he came up with a new concept. and that concept is that nature is a weapon life that nature is an interconnected whole where everything somehow hangs together from the smallest insect to the tallest tree and he described as
6:48 pm
a living organism so that's what i mean with the invention of nature that he's not . then nature was much more seen as a mechanical system not as a living organism. the idea of nature as a living organism in which everything is interconnected was a new one in the 19th century. also warned that humans were a danger to nature he not only wanted people to understand nature but to feel that this is something that we now have to think about in the current debate about the climate crisis sensible. we have the ability is just not acceptable in the scientific world for example in peer reviewed articles scientists are not allowed to write about their feelings and their emotions if you speak to scientists most will tell you that they became a scientist because they love nature so i think it is there and there is really time to dare to introduce this into debates again for example i give you one
6:49 pm
example which you know in the in. our whole debate of our climate change we tend to talk about statistics so we say we talk about the increasing acidity of of the oceans but we don't talk about the beauty of while. we all know how terrible oil production is for our planet but it is the photograph of a. black oya grandest but that makes us can i'll stop and untrain of all spaced selling book the invention of nature alexander from whom bolts new world is not only a biography but in a bench a story about whom bolts travels and discoveries full of exciting imagery and wherever home bottom bomb plant tarrant during those 1st weeks of c'mon or something new quit their tension the landscape have to spell over and bought sacked

would have never believed it and that for me was very very important moment to moment with bombs and everything because for me the homework that is so important is the one who talks about who warns about the destruction of the environment. more than 200 years ago and to see him being used for this argument again i think is just wonderful it. has been translated into many languages and sold in dozens of. countries she's been invited all over the world has received numerous prizes and given dozens of speeches at conferences or on television and she's also on the program committee of the hall forum billions new museum for world cultures that's expected to open in 2020 the building that will house it based on berlin's form a city palace contains old and new architectural elements.
6:54 pm
the home bought for a move showcased berlin's rich collections of non european cultural artifacts how would under a of wolf curator an exhibition here if given the chance. of last fall i'm glad i'm not a curator just a historian so i don't have to do this but i think i would. put something in there that deals with this link between the arts and sciences that bridge that we've completely forgotten so we tend to draw the sharp line between you know we see them as 2 different disciplines but someone like home was very much united and i think that's really missing at the moment so i would look at that. and also because it's not just alexander it's also will have his name they both have the name who bought it so it should be also something about languages which i think you
6:55 pm
could bring like poetry science arts stuff like that together alexander's older brother the statesman an educational reform bill him from whom bald was also very famous cheering his life time the whole ball brothers grew up at schloss table losing their father and as an early age mother was a staunch advocate of education and both of them made the most of this each in his own way. so they had they were very different already as children both both set that they had an unhappy childhood. escaped into books stories of ancient rome and greece and alexander escaped into the forests and take the income you know stuff little insect in his pocket and collected and and then later as younger man's they were they were not very close.
6:56 pm
and then william was very critical about alexander living in paris and said you forget you're a german this and then later older man they're so there's this really wonderful shift you can see how they become very close and they begin to work together and when you look at. williams work on language you can see that if he does exactly what alexander bass with nature he sees language as a living organism. vilhelm was the prussian academic alexander the cosmopolitan explorer who became world famous he soon found berlin to provincial and lived in paris when he wasn't travelling his journeys took him to the united states and russia. and though he spent years planning a voyage to india he never made it there as britain's king george the 4th wouldn't give him permission. but home bolt is everywhere in monuments
6:57 pm
places and geographical features around the world have been named after him including the homebuilt current which flows along the western coast of south america there's also the penguin this lily is named after him even bears who bolts 9. it's weird when you go to america where hardly anyone knows alexander from on board there are so many places named after their best for example there are 13 towns named after him there are 4 counties there's a bay there is a river there is a university named after and there's the cheese some some younger. kids kind of teenagers early twenty's people know his name because the best marianna comes from humboldt county so they have heard is there but they don't know who he is 150 years ago it was
6:58 pm
a different story in 196910 years after his death and on the 100th anniversary of his birth both was honored with fireworks around the globe why was he all but forgotten afterwards. there's not a single big discovery attached to him was the name so he did not come up with the theory of evolution or he didn't discover. a natural law he came up with this idea that nature as a weapon of life we've taken this idea for so technical so so much for granted that we forgot the man behind this idea i think that's one thing and the other thing is that he is the his way of doing science of saying yes on the one hand you have to measure everything but on the other hand you also have to use your imagination was absolutely not accepted in the early 20th century anymore and then last but not least at least in the english speaking world he there's a very strong german sentiment with world war one so that's the that's the moment when he's going to get pushed out of the public memory here. many of whom both
6:59 pm
scientists seem to address contemporary problems not only because we are increasingly dealing with the effects of climate change but also because more and more people are asking what they can do to hold to it such as those taking part in the friday's future movement headed by swedish team richard to. realize 2 centuries earlier that human intervention in the natural world can have terrible consequences . there's a moment in his diary in 81 when he's when he's in latin america where he actually says that one day we might travel to distant planets and if we do that we will bring who take our lethal mixture of greed arrogance and while it's with us and we will leave those planets as ravaged as we've already done with so i think he sees this trajectory what we are what we are. about to what's about to happen i mean he
7:00 pm
in $832.00 he says there are 3 ways in which the in which humans can affect the climate he says is through deforestation through irrigation and through the great masses of steam and gas at the industrial centers $832.00 so that was pretty good prediction pretty prophetic. but the time bill finished. writing the invention of nature she thought she knew everything there was to know about alexander from whom bolt but then state library acquired his diaries which hadn't been accessible to the public before and she wasn't done with one boat yet. there is actually one moment i can tell you exactly when i decided that i had to write a 2nd book about which was when. when his legendary south american diaries where bored so they had been in private ownership until them but at the end of 2013 they were bored by the prussians heritage foundation and they were
7:01 pm
made available online so this was the moment when the 1st pages became available at the end of 2014 this was the moment when i was just handing over my manuscript for the invention of nature. so i couldn't use them. for the imagination which was not a problem tons of content we cause we had transcriptions but seeing the actual paper pages 4000 pages with hundreds of little sketches and drawings i knew i wanted to do a book that would also show on boards artistic visual side because he did not just understand nature intellectually but also visually so that's when i decided to do whatever you want to call it kind of graphic novel or graphic nonfiction illustrated. journey of discovery or whatever it is but something that would show his stuff this trailer based on the adventures of alexander from home bold shows
7:02 pm
that the book does more than summarize homebuilt south american adventure it recounts his 1st encounter with the continent's indigenous peoples his fascination with its natural beauty his discoveries and his observations about man made disasters illustrator lilian melcher worked many of whom original texts and drawings into this wonderful graphic novel. so in a way he became the collaborator so i wrote it. about every single page there something that his manuscripts his his engravings his original plan specimens his maps so he has his handwriting is everywhere. untrainable spent a decade researching the life of alexander one home in archives libraries and private collections she traveled the world following in his footsteps to find out what he saw and felt on his expeditions she learned about the hardships he endured
7:03 pm
and the diversity of nature there's no doubt that alexander from whom bolt was a fascinating figure. how do you close the book on someone's son vibrant and does she even want to know. what i think i want to have to say goodbye forever he's just going to be like an old friend you see not as much as anymore. i'm pretty sure that i'll continue being interested in him i mean this is the same with my previous books about the founding fathers i still do talks and events about us to do interviews about it not as much as and anymore but i do have the feeling in the last almost 4 years since the invention came out i've been home what's purpose of the lady and it's kind of time to step back at some stage so. in 2020 i'm going to finally write another book you know so so i will see less of him i
7:04 pm
won't get completely divorced but i also will have some new friends which i will have to entertain not just him. untrainable smear project is another historical biography this one is about several people she won't reveal who however she doubt she'll ever encounter another figure as exciting i'm 50 and important as alexander from him bolt the great gemma naturalist and explorer.

pro-democracy protesters have complained that police were treating them more harshly then the protester from the probate jink out what did it look like to you. so at least from what i've seen and there were no pro beijing beijing supporters there were none of them being arrested but i've seen 2 pro-democracy protesters being arrested by the police and even though both sides they are quite aggressive and foul and sometimes and so this claim is also justifiable from pro-democracy protesters and it's also actually heightened tension between the protesters and the police because they think that the police really is really siding with the probation group. for tomorrow there's another major demonstration planned in hong kong tell us more. so tomorrow
7:12 pm
these protests actually banned by the police but then. in the past several days you can hear a lot of protestors already saying that they will go anyway and they're also calling for more people to come out and actually. who is trying to apply for the permit to go on to have this rally tomorrow they were organized so who organized. demonstrations with 1000000 people and 2000000 people will came out in the past months and so it is expected that. this rally would have a very big turnout but then of course the fact that the police is not permitting this rally would make them easier to make a rest so as long as they see people gathered together they already have. to rest and the people so. we can expect that some confrontation saying complex my prick up . from but thank you.

7:25 pm
the park director wants to combat the poaching and asked marlena who is a vet for her help 80 years ago since then she's been in charge of developing a special sniffer dog unit for this purpose. of the cold i didn't know anything about congo only as much as the next person i just knew that it was somewhere in the middle of africa and there was a conflict there when i got there 1st email and phone call i thought i'm not sending any dogs down there especially not my favorite breed the author. thank you dr from what the director of the virunga national park explained to me what he wanted and i gradually got involved we brought our 1st dogs to congo in february 20th levon. all.

aver on the national park is a unesco world heritage site it's the oldest park in africa and at 8090 square kilometers is the size of the greek island of crete a different county judes of the park allow enormous biodiversity and a wide range of habitats. i've. a large number of endangered species live in the national park but it's mountain gorillas are the best known worldwide there are only around 1000 gorillas left and 600 of them live here. it's. their own go once had the highest density of wildlife in africa today
7:27 pm
95 percent of the animals have disappeared tusks and homes are traded for billions on the asian black markets i think the street price is higher than that of gold. poaching is on the rise and tourists no longer come. i think i. was going to say i knew for days to fill one of the 1st questions i asked the director of the park when he called was what will they do as i say my idea was that africans are not used to women being figures of authority. but i soon noticed that i had no problems right from the beginning. they call me mama which not only means mother but is a mark of respect when i tell them to do something they do it when you can as i get

most of the piece the most. of what i know. malina discusses the training plan with christian the leader of the congo hound unit. for evoking yes bob is not cooperating as usual he's resistant to going to but. once. you get it. back up ash just a minute wait. he doesn't want to go in. what he does he's already been inside but if you leave the door open and white and don't do anything then it won't work much but the. careful osca quiet. i. bloodhound soon get used to their training territory
7:29 pm
man always takes how to talk unit from roman garbo the administrative center to new places in the park the bloodhounds need to be able to find their way in all kinds of surroundings. that we. will. likely this is. the 2nd as every seal is sent to bear the breeder we have here the bloodhound is new for us for what they were the 1st time i saw these dogs i was afraid of them and didn't like the hero. not even our ancestors kept dogs live at the mission then when i saw these bloodhounds with their long years and huge noses i thought they were really bizarre. to.
7:30 pm
me. from the very 1st day as soon as the dogs arrived i started working with it but i got used to them after a while. then i changed my career from being a gamekeeper to a dog handler. to prison where there are actually $0.02 after the other motivation means trying the hand then they're off on a longer trial. so. the ok really you. want to see if. there are 8 of us handlers and the dog unit for each of us has its own dog i'm dodi's handler i'm really happy and proud of her because she's such
7:31 pm
a good worker. and. me and we start with the search game you put something on the ground for them we call it a same time typically a t. shirt or a jacket then the person runs away and the dog runs after them then all. apart go right that's right yes good dog. in the film but at some point the bloodhound realizes that it's fun that he'll get a snack or cries at the end and he also realizes that the item of clothing. front of him belongs to the person he's looking for you can build on this in training. yes yes well done david.
7:32 pm
i was. jumpier shako a retired psychometrist from bern heard about the anti poaching project from alena . you will see it. to support her endeavors he decided to create a comic book all about the brave woman and her blood hounds. as anyone in. can i go in. by i'm john p.r. jackal i'm looking for a radio titan or i yes it's here. yeah great hi pleased to meet you. wish white ok you can start recording.
7:33 pm
it's only had you thought you know can you say radio tie in to that i know we. were a radio station specialized in nature conservation hearing what is the reason for your visit. and the reason for my visit is to talk about my comic book about conservation here in congo in particular about protecting the borders national park . and so it's a comic book especially for children. why did you create this book. i want to use this comic to show what natural treasures you have here in your country and that they are in danger like nature all over the world with. it's important to me that i can make a difference with this comic i want to shake people up and make children aware of it i thought to myself i have the time and maybe the opportunity to contribute
7:34 pm
something to the beautiful nature you have here. so you can call it there's nothing like this here in congo there are lots of fact books but nothing for children there is no distributor and congo there is no alternative but for me to carry all the books down here in my luggage or as cargo at the moment i'm bringing them in my luggage as many as possible. then i bring the books into schools and talk to the teachers about the best way of handling the books how to use that. ok. me i'm sorry i'm late. yes you're very late the head teacher has been expecting this since 9 o'clock you're 6 or 7 minutes late it's no big deal.
7:35 pm
i. look at this children. it's. such a. big. way what you see on the page. akira. animals bravo thank you what kind of animals. don't shout out i can see you all i see you. oh yes they are wild animals the way.
7:36 pm
even the who is threatening the park. you have to know this if we're going to fight this threat. yes there are poachers. it's good by these poachers good people. should the poachers be protected to 40. 000-000-0000 so you must know there are park rangers to protect us and there are specially trained sniffer dogs they can follow the scent of an animal which has been killed over 200 kilometers away with this so this is. the most article but. you know. i think. you're. going to post the focus of the village population sees the dogs with
7:37 pm
a mixture of great curiosity and fear in the beginning they shouted simba swahili for a line. while. the black out a bloodhound has been bred for following old difficult and long trials for over a 1000 years the animal has been selected to do this work called man trailing now the man to a. love. of all dogs the bloodhound has one of the best developed senses of smell it is capable of sniffing the scent of a certain person and following it weeks later over distances of many kilometers.
7:38 pm
a bloodhound can even smell the scent of the person who fired a bullet from this cartridge casing dropped carelessly to the ground after being heated top 1000 degrees when fire. during their training the don't become accustomed to increasingly difficult situations noise different types of ground and trails of differing ages the animal is capable of working successfully in villages where there are countless smells. but. come here show us. to clearly identify the person sort the dog gets up on its back legs is then rewarded.
7:39 pm
i've. seen. a whole hope your 1st time i came here the ranges didn't even know how to take a dog for a walk i was able to choose some good people but they had no training and no experience of working with dogs or how to look after them i had to start from scratch i also had to learn how to get my message across to train them that i let the on those fingers. that look trying to do it as if you were a dog. the training takes about 2 years during which the dog and the
7:40 pm
handler build up a relationship of trust they can only work successfully as a team. you can go right or left left or be this way right would be here exactly. i mean if you did a good job there come on leyla for you and after she sniffed it safe search. can someone take the cat. yeah. bloodhounds don't simply accept orders they are never totally obedient humans have to learn the dog's language and how to interpret the dog's behavior correctly. then lead her lead her lead her and now give her time. in difficult situations the handler has to be able to recognize whether the dog is following the trail of the
7:41 pm
right person. blower khulood house can get along with the climate almost anywhere the problem here of course is the whole infrastructure there's hardly anything in congo there are no shops no department stores not in east congo so i have to import everything we have here in the congo hound unit for the rangers and the dogs in suitcases from switzerland. or i don't have the chance to transport them with a container or anything but i thought it hong kong i normally travel to congo with 4 to 6 suitcases or 23 kilos and travel back with just 1 may be at about 12 kilos. we did so if the 12 killed. the same with cora. yes it's the same problem so we'll keep on with the bedpan tain
7:42 pm
it's hope or was this enough. of 12 i was for the from the beginning one of the biggest problems was veterinary care we have to do most of it ourselves. so i've trained my ranges like veterinary assistance they can do general examinations they can give injections or infusions. they can also perform blood tests especially for blood parasites. we have a microscope here and they're very good at using it probably better than me because they do it more often think we're operating based off he is going to say haunting. ok at least he's 4.5 kilos. oh no that's because of your hand. that brings. this so i made some vision at the moment for example our dogs are pretty thin thinner
7:43 pm
than they should be. if you had that we feed them natural food that means beef and rice or potatoes or vegetables oil and a mixture of vitamins and minerals and all of me think. it's good if a dog doesn't have to work and when he's not growing. but unfortunately we've noticed that our 1st puppy bonus has developed growth deficiencies. like for that we tried to find some ready mix food but doesn't exist in congo so now we're importing food from kenya so the dogs are not hungry they get big portions 2 to 3 times a day but for growing dogs or working dogs it's not enough. i
7:44 pm
. think. there's. a a. lever on their national park is in the middle of a region which has been afflicted by armed conflict for 30 years 600 armed rangers including the dog handlers risked their lives on a daily basis to guarantee the protection of the park they are recruited from the surrounding villages and undertake strict military training. to separate my swore an oath to save wild animals and to protect nature.
7:45 pm
bull frog that's my job and i'm willing to die for it to sacrifice my life to the protection of these animals they're more even. pull a protects from this is on printer for protecting nature is the 1st priority family comes 2nd. didn't get. much cooler i. didn't say i escaped death once but my friend was killed in 2003.
7:46 pm
i. i. for you ready yes it was thanks. everything we protect is of great value for the population. for example. sometimes people take firewood for cooking from the park. if they want to make coal and sell it or will. that is absolutely forbidden as much as poaching. in the poachers are often arming and if you try to stop them it gets dangerous deliberate because if they see you 1st they will kill you is that when the premier.
7:47 pm

you ever been confronted with poaching and i. wonder if. you know how can you stick a gun what if the poacher is someone in your family what do you do then. people know about the criminal goings on in the park but they turn a blind eye to it often it's family members who are in some way involved in the poaching sometimes out of necessity to scrape together a living. then there is commercial poaching which is a different story in a spectacular campaign christian help to rescue a kidnapped baby gorilla poachers want to sell it on the black market sums of up to $40000.00 run off. the animal has since been living in the only mountain gorilla orphanage in the world in a sink like way center in the veranda national park it was named after

7:56 pm
if we meet i grew up with dogs the 1st dog i can remember was a boxer after that we had 2 dacs ones. then i watch this lassie serious and in one of the episodes there was a bloodhound called samantha. this samantha had a real character knew exactly what she wanted it was independent but also stabbed and. so that really impressed me and i wouldn't stop pestering my mother until we had our 1st blood hound a bitch called godall. my mum and my marlin invited me to switzerland to do more training as a dog handler so it's nothing like congo nobody can arrest you and the police don't bother people. no. it was just. hello welcome to our seminar here in test scene.
7:57 pm
for 5 yards 5 years ago i took on the training of all the rangers in congo and soon had the idea that it would be good for them to experience how other handlers work with their dogs in congo they're the only ones there's no comparison that's why i started inviting ranges here in the autumn we go to training seminars but we also give presentations for what are called was. one of. our. body that was. welcome to our presentation on the congo project the congo how project as we call it was named and. then it dawned on me we. undervalue and then. i get on stage one thought was how will they handle it when
7:58 pm
they come here from congo one of the poorest countries in the world on it. they see how we live here and how well we live but they also notice that we pay 5 francs 50 for a coffee they can live on that for a week. or. 200 but they really like their own country they have their families and friends there and you can learn to move between these 2 cultures so it's really very positive if. iraq. great. poaching between cuba and key but. yes commander. i think.
7:59 pm

the news that the docs can trace all criminals has spread thanks to man and his tireless work with a dog squad and the general tightening of security in the park poaching has decreased considerably of elephants too by about 30 percent of the population of the mountain gorillas is even risen by a. theme for the final goal of this whole project is certainly to get my people so independent that they don't need me anymore it's their country it's their park and they have to be able to do the job themselves so they're not there yet they still need my advice to my support but they're making huge progress.
8:05 pm

8:11 pm
were treating them more harshly then the protester from the probe aging cound what did it look like to you. so at least from what i've seen there were no pro beaching supporters there were none of them being arrested but i've seen 2 pro-democracy protesters being arrested by the police and even though the full size they are quite aggressive and foul and sometimes and so this claim is also justifiable from pro-democracy protesters and it's also actually heightened tension between the protesters and the police because they think that the police really is really siding with probating group. tomorrow there is another major demonstration planned in hong kong tell us more. so tomorrow these protests actually banned by the police but then. in the past

is that you i'll be to make my life miserable what nonsense talk just. make a movie with the reason that iraq to ahmed ahmed believes that art is necessary to channel people's emotions about the difficulties in their lives but is it the right time to talk about art it's not the proper time for our proper time for sport but that's not true because if everyone stopped doing what they have to do with all sunk in the same situation real life expressed through art for artists in yemen it's a way to promote dialogue and ultimately peace in their country. we move on to the mediterranean the waters separating africa and europe are one of the world's deadliest migration routes now the german aid organization c watch is using reconnaissance flights to ensure people don't vanish under the waves.

8:29 pm
these cheap inflatable boats are not made to last and sometimes sink after days out at sea. even if k. and his crew managed to spot a boat in distress it doesn't mean the passengers will be brought to safety due to a crackdown on n.g.o.s there are very few rescue boats left on the water and merchant vessels try to avoid the affected area all together often the libyan coast guard is the last resort for kelly and his colleagues this is a frustrating experience and that's because as long as ships are being feast rescue capacities are being cut somewhere the only ones keeping an eye on the water we have to deal with situations like this. we're back on the ground where exactly we cannot say. much here are aware that their organizations activities are being closely monitored since you governments such as italy have started to crack down on rescue n.g.o.s see watch faces public criticism and accusations that they are aiding people smugglers. a claim that most vigorously rejects. but
8:30 pm
which we would never communicate with people smugglers and no capacity that's simply criminals have made a business with people who suffer and make money out of the 2nd stance that they're so desperate and see no other way than reaching out to them. listen i send it to. cases these claims are used to paint them as criminals and distract from the real issue. despite the mounting pressure. say they will continue to go in missions for as long as they are allowed to or until their work becomes no longer necessary . morrish is has long been a model of religious tolerance and diversity one place that makes this plain to see is the grave of french priest bad enough but this place of pilgrimage draws people of every race. into faith family outing

hello and welcome to another exciting edition of euro max i'm your host maggie lake here's a look at what else we've got coming up. classic car to my debut with electric motor. and hats off to a small region in italy that is big on track making. the 1st one best way to bring attention to climate change well perhaps by transforming a studio or a soccer stadium into a forest around 300 trees were brought in from nurseries not here of course and planted in a stadium in austria in a bid to make a statement against global warming and deforestation well the artists of this installation believe that if change doesn't happen now in the future we will only be able to see forests in like environment.
8:40 pm
anyone expecting to see penalties the vatos the stadium cabinets what will be in for a bit of a surprise there's not much soccer going on in this forest. for his project the swiss artist was inspired by a drawing by the austrian artist. called the an ending attraction of nature. basically what i'm doing here is trying to produce a quite radical picture and i'm dealing with an underlying theme that next point now also have both of us independently of each other and that's perception. how do we deal with our perceived nature. visitors are not allowed to touch or enter the forest only look out. on money to create
8:41 pm
a warning monument about the climate crisis it took him 6 years to realize the 4 forest project. he worked together with this swiss landscape architect enso in the era nines in it's a seeing that the sink these are the difference of been sees here so the shorts for those their of the black pines you know but who slim they've been replanted 16 tiles it's a 199 trees were planted between the goal posts creating a mixed forest which is become the bike rare in europe these days the trees were located in very is german french and italian nurseries some of them were 50 years old all the trees had been transplanted several times so they could cope before a being transported the roots were pruned end bound together into a ball then they were fixed into the ground thus the trees will survive without
8:42 pm
damage to the roots keep hope 4th sorts of fiends and some she it was very difficult for me to find a proportion to the stadium because it 1st i couldn't imagine how it would be you or help me go on the so then i imagined footballers playing be there about 1.8 meters tall on average and then i imagine on them passing balls to each other mins long shots hard shots and this stadium posts $30000.00 seeds and just as many ways of seeing the forest visitors to the forest can either sit or wander around as the rose to mocks pint now who's aren't works also feature in new york's museum of modern art is the visionary who imagined a stadium forest over 40 years ago but his was not a wild mixed forest belief use this story ghost of all the great that the
8:43 pm
forest as different from maher and of of the on my way over here i was really scared that they hadn't managed to capture my for us it feel to put now i'm really glad that they do it. in the photo see nice get. the artwork was financed privately including by collectors and the swiss fund. clowns littman had discovered the stadium in 2013 and persuaded the city of captain foote to agree to his idea. the project has both supporters and critics say. it's exactly what we need in order to think about the climate change problem that we have right now. i think it's nonsense to be honest this doesn't belong in a football stadium just focus and it's a warning monument it's huge parts of the amazon forest have birth down recently because of deforestation and this project shows how important a forest and it's function is. there are 2 different jumpers artisans. for forest
8:44 pm
is a sustainable project visitors can enjoy it until the end of october the stadium opens to late at night afterwards the trees will be transplanted again and will set down their roots not far away for the long term. it's that time of year again when cars take center stage at the international auto show in frankfurt now much of the focus is on promoting electric cars but what do you do if you have a vintage vehicle but still runs on an old catalytic converter well even these old cars are being brought into the era of electric mobility. not all vintage cars have to be noisy and smelly don't leave money is enjoying a new experience his steam powered car from 1938 now has an electric

subscribe to a documentary on. the face . of dogs like these can bring in lots of money dealers are trying to peddle a puppy in berlin we recorded the attempt on a hidden camera i will have a moment she's cute where she from. she said to be from south beach she has all his shots no idea. how much you're asking though 500 euros. the police move him up animal welfare. time seen here on the left witnesses scenes like this almost daily. and.
9:25 pm
he finds this. pushes ads on the internet and alerts the police. to. the phone to the line this is the illegal trade in dogs is a multi-billion euro business. the. stuff unclip stein is an expert in the dog trade he came across this little maltese on the internet and informed the police for over 5 years now the volunteer animal welfare arrest has been rescuing dogs from smugglers. and if you have the guns this is another typical ad to go for the dogs presented by itself on a soap and as bad on implementation of the war a respectable dog breeder whatever percentage dog like that and even the $500.00
9:26 pm
euro price is way too cheap from a regular breeder it would cost from 121200 euros we're told $2500.00 or war. on these operations cliff stein always works with the decoys a fake buyer. his face is now too well known among the dog dealers so a friend is helping out on this one. became a home she very important ask of the dog really comes from serbia you've seen it before you've already done this many times in the betting district as a hotbed of the illegal dog trade that's another clue we see that here all the time i hope it isn't somebody we already know. me to but we'll handle it. that way i'm hardly stefan's hunch was right on the buyers turn out to be illegal
9:27 pm
dog dealers with their long records they're placed under arrest. i'm. right there. in front of the move and there was a part is when you think it could spin out of control and you're waiting for the police to help you we'll inform them of the numbers that we know they know go. all need to know he's got a bad eye infection and the ears are totally sore. they washed him today didn't get most of us left yes they did but he smells like dog shampoo. and the dealers always do that so the dogs will smell and look better for the buyers. the dog is probably 8 to 10 weeks old. we shouldn't even be in germany and up for sale of. puppies may only be exported to other e.q. member states after 15 weeks of a trip before that they have to get all required vaccinations for their own health
9:28 pm
and to keep from spreading diseases possible in the next day we need stefan in a cafe in berlin he didn't want to be filmed at home vengeful smugglers have attacked him many times and even seriously injured him. when we're here but you're kind of so if you look through classifieds you'll find over 16000 ads for dogs for sale. and that's just on e bay just on e bay. there are various other sites that also after ties pets for sale in this are the most and if you include all of europe living doesn't go on some who are millions of dogs are sold every year the profit margin is very wide because the dogs can be bought in eastern europe very cheap and then sold for 3 to 4 times as much here. and i'd say 8 out of 10 ads on e bay classifieds are from disreputable dealers trading in dogs illegally covered $100.00. 1 of the figures from the german animal welfare association will show that
9:29 pm
most of the puppies export it illegally from eastern europe are taken to germany the main country of origin for the smugglers is romania there are the dogs smugglers employ another scam they smuggle stray dogs instead of pedigree canines to germany often through dubious animal welfare organizations or private individuals good to get more blood on it may sound improbable how can you make money with stray dogs hundreds of thousands live in the streets i can collect them from there or from animal shelters they even get them for free with them in germany they'd have to pay a token charge they sell them here and cash in big on people's compassion. animal welfare arrests estimate that europe's illegal dog trade now brings in billions of euros almost as much as the narcotics trade course that isn't always loans to us that sometimes comes on the foreign animal protection agencies are very
9:30 pm
different from anyone acting against them or exposing their illegal doings as persecuted stalked and slandered from them so people know the smugglers will bring a mountain of trouble down on the. romania. here stray dogs are a major problem hardly anyone looks after them and they're either put to sleep or smuggled to germany diseased and abused. ready or mario's kirkup takes on the smugglers at the opposite end of the criminal network he files complaints on lobbies to have the laws changed he's also experienced physical attacks by the smugglers. and i think that's. over time he became ever more involved in the work
9:31 pm
eventually quitting his job and opening an animal shelter for the rescued dogs he takes the badly injured ones home to care for them personally. among them is the sheep dog corbucci his previous owner chopped off all his paws with a hatchet after the starving dog killed and ate a chicken the cruel owner was only penalize it with a fine. people who are making. smugglers tossed costy into a garbage can when animal welfare is to expose them but now cost he is master of the house. pictures of neglected dogs can also be turned
9:32 pm
into money self professed animal welfare assistance in germany worked together with middlemen in romania to collect massive donations on the internet most of them over facebook they set a vast money machine in motion. putting out when they were the rescue was right i need money for the transport and the germans italians and english stop folk it's over. pretty soon the smugglers get a few 1000 euros together. while they transport the dogs to a shelter where they start the search for more sponsors. the same ones who've already donated send even more money then comes the next stage money allegedly needed for vaccinations passes and so on. so they rake in even more probably 222-5000 euros for 30 to 40 dogs. that's quite a sum and a business that both police and in the 3rd and observers are acquainted with
9:33 pm
officially about 5000 stray dogs are taken out of romania across the hungary and border daily the true figure may be far higher. e.u. regulations require a chip implanted in every exploited dog the data are entered into the e.u. data bank system allowing for verification of previous owners and vaccinations corrupt veterinarians willing to issue false papers are vital to the dog smugglers a veterinarian from romania has agreed to talk about the corrupt system she asks to remain anonymous. she says i've gotten several requests to issue traces certification without actually having seen the animals they basically wanted to give me a list of chips so that i provide passports papers and traces in return for cash i refused to accept those offers the vaccinations are also fake they have spread
9:34 pm
disease all over europe. stephan clip stein is acquainted with this practice having worked for some time in an animal shelter now he has an office job and spends most of his free time helping animals his interest goes back to his childhood days. i found my calling in combating these dealers and taking action to stop with them of course it's nice to work at a shelter but these animals keep showing up no fundamental changes are made because people aren't informed and don't push the government to make those changes to provide sick leave your friend for. life stein is lobbying for official support he needs with cure involved animal welfare expert for the c.d.u. in berlin. only problem is a major problem is that animals are increasingly being sold under the pretense of animal welfare many from romania they say they're rescuing stray dogs then for
9:35 pm
