Stopping Australia from the Cruel Practice of Live Animal Export

Category: Ask The President, Life

SheepAustralia has been shipping live animals to other countries where they are brutally killed or slaughtered. A petition has been started online to urge the Australian parliament to stop exporting animals. The petition reads:

A recently released video shows a brutal cull of 10,000 sheep sent to Pakistan from Australia, with some of the animals being stabbed or buried alive. Though the shipment of 21,000 sheep had passed earlier health checks, authorities later found they were infected with salmonella and anthrax.

And as the petition notes, Australia also exported several thousand baby cows to Egypt where they were stranded for weeks at a port before were finally slaughtered.

To stop such cruelty for corporate interests, the petition seeks a ban on live export of animals from Australia.
