Help end the EU’s cruel live animal export trade

Help end the EU’s cruel live animal export trade
17/02/2017

The EU exports over two million cattle & sheep a year to the Middle East, North Africa and Turkey. The long journeys and slaughter practices in this region impose immense suffering on these animals. Compassion argues that this trade ignores EU law on the protection of animals during transport and we call on the European Commission to end this trade, and meanwhile, to ensure that animals are transported in compliance with EU law and slaughtered in the importing countries in accordance with agreed international standards on welfare at slaughter.
