I realise that this is not the ideal forum to discuss these matters – this blog is meant to be about inspiration – however this is an issue that I feel very strongly about. Australia sends live sheep and cattle to foreign countries, where they are slaughtered under local conditions. These animals have to endure a highly distressing journey after which they are inhumanely slaughtered according to local standards (or lack thereof). Despite government reassurances that there are strict controls, we again have seen filmed evidence of extreme cruelty to these animals.
Live export of animals for slaughter is inhumane and must stop. Please help stop this cruel practice by sending a letter to the Australian Prime Minister here – and if you are an Australian citizen please send a letter to your local MP.
