Live exports

February 28, 2014 Leave a comment Go to comments
Every year millions of exported animals are suffering needlessly because of the failure of the European Commission to protect them. This failure must not go on, and this suffering must be stopped.

Will you demand change at an EU level today?

When European farm animals are exported to non-EU countries every shred of protection they once received in their place of birth is rendered meaningless. After enduring long, exhausting journeys by land and sea they may face terrifying ordeals at slaughter. Our recent investigation in partnership with Animals Australia documented this treatment. Please take a moment to watch and share the results of our investigation.

Investigation video
Watch our latest video and find out more about the export of live animals from the EU.

Warning: you may find some of the content of this video distressing.

Animals were dragged by their limbs, bound up with ropes, pinned down by groups of men, beaten with metal rods, suspended upside down for extended periods of time, and eventually slaughtered in unacceptable ways that left them conscious for many minutes after having their throats cut.

But it doesn’t have to be this way. The European Commission is in a position to stop this cruelty.

The Commission must stop the live export of animals from the EU. And, until such a time as they end this trade, they must implement a system that will protect the welfare of exported animals at slaughter. Investments must also be made by the EU to provide practical support to countries that import EU animals which will allow them to improve slaughter practice for all animals.

Please, will you help stop the suffering by writing to the European Commission?
