ATAAC | Australian Teens Against Animal Cruelty - Live Export: its just cruel
Raised on a large, remote farm, this sheep has enjoyed space to roam and very little human contact.
But all this is about to change. Because this sheep is one of millions of Australian farm animals about to suffer a fate far worse than death. He's to begin a horrific journey to slaughter overseas - herded onto a packed truck and driven across the country, sometimes in scorching heat.
It's then onto a ship where conditions are much worse. He's terrified and he'll spend up to three weeks on the crowded ship. With around three sheep to one metre square, there is little room to move and an unfamiliar diet of pellets means he may not eat for the entire journey.
Stress, heat-exhaustion, injury and disease result in the death of around 1,000 sheep on each ship of 100,000. Those that survive the journey arrive in countries with little or no animal welfare legislation where they are often transported, handled and slaughtered in the most barbaric way.
It's just cruel.
It's also completely unnecessary. Australia already exports chilled meat to many countries it sends live animals to. Replacing live export with a growth in the trade of chilled meat, humanely killed as close to the farm as possible, will benefit both animals and Australia.
