Live transport & live export
4 page brochure with map.
The EU exports over 3.4 million cattle, sheep and pigs a year to non-EU countries for slaughter, fattening or breeding. These journeys often involve massive suffering. This brochure, with a map showing some of the main journeys, demonstrates why we believe the inhumane live export trade must be brought to an urgent end.
