Terrified animals making desperate efforts to escape after having their throats cut open; others with eyes stabbed; leg tendons slashed; and being butchered while still alive... This is the nightmare endured by animals who were exported live from Australia to Egypt. If it weren't for the brave actions of one Egyptian vet who alerted Animals Australia, this cruelty may have gone completely unchallenged.
Tragically this systemic abuse occurred under the close watch of Australia's live export industry — inside the 'closed-loop' facilities of Sokhna and Ismailia. These two locations represent the entire Egyptian live export supply chain and has been lauded by industry as 'state of the art'. But when Animals Australia revealed that we had obtained footage from inside these facilities, the industry immediately and loudly announced a temporary trade suspension. Yet just days later, live exporters were already making moves to re-open the live export trade to Egypt — and send more animals to be killed in these same abattoirs. We cannot let this happen.
Animals shouldn't have to pay the price for the fact that the live export trade cannot be trusted to protect them from extreme cruelty. Please take urgent action to demand that animals never again be sent to these cruel destinations, and tell our political leaders to end the cruelty of live export, forever.
