The Agriculture Ministry now admits that the conditions on these "live animal transports" are cruel! An inspector with Israel’s Agriculture Ministry admitted that animals on these miserable transport ships are regularly subjected to poor ventilation, high levels of ammonia, wet bedding, high humidity and suffocation resulting from overcrowded conditions.
Sheep packed into the ships are often unable to lay down for upwards of three weeks because they have no room - animals that get sick are thrown overboard. This is cruel and it must come to an end!
Please join us in asking David Littleproud, the Minister for Water Resources in Australia, and Bridget McKenzie, the
Minister for Agriculture, to stop sending live animals on ships of suffering and death. Cows and sheep are being exported from Australia to be slaughtered in other countries. Conditions on the ships are horrific, and when an animal gets sick, it is thrown overboard into the sea...sometimes while still alive. These live animal exports must be halted - the suffering has gone on too long.
