Export from Europe no different
A new European documentary shows the fate of animals transported outside the EU: they are beaten, injured, exhausted, dehydrated, starved... and then they face unstunned and often barbaric slaughter.
It's happening to European animals, and despite industry assurances to the contrary, it is happening to Australian animals. Most recently in August this year, more new footage by the "independent auditor" Animals Australia taken inside Indonesian abattoirs showed Australian cattle being tied up by the mouth, dragged around a slaughter house by rope while alive and slaughtered while fully conscious, breaching rules that supposedly protect exported Australian animals from end-destination cruelty (ESCAS).
EU regulations haven't prevented the cruelty. Australian regulations haven't prevented the cruelty. OIE guidelines have not prevented the cruelty. It's time to end the live export trade globally.
