Petition to Stop Live Animal Export

To The Honourable the President and Members of the Senate in Parliament assembled:

The Petition of the undersigned protests in the strongest possible terms against the live-export of Australian animals.

During transportation the animals are subjected to inhumane conditions resulting in unacceptably high death rates and suffering. Upon arrival, they suffer extreme cruelty and barbarism prior to and during slaughter - practices that are illegal in Australia.

Your petitioners call upon the members of the Senate to immediately, and without delay, ban the live export of Australian livestock.

2006-05-13 Genni Marks Australia After reading and seeing many of the photographs and overcrowded conditions and the injuries and the many many deaths these animals suffer, I can on deduce this indeed is unacceptable and I firmly believe it belongs to some bygone era. And when these animals do arrive to there country of destination they will again suffer brutal and inhumane deaths.
2006-05-13 sylvia froggatt australia (enter comments here)animals have the same physical needs and feel pain in thesame way we do. we wouldn't treat a human being in such a barbaric way, so why in God's name do it to a defenceless, voiceless animal. Please stop this unspeakable cruelty. There must be another, more humane way

2006-04-25 Kathy Rector USA Put yourselves in the place of these animals and then see if you'd like to be on the receiving end of the torture and slaughter that they unwillingly and unknowingly have to endure at the hands of human beings, the same human beings who are supposed to be their caretakers! Sometimes it makes me ashamed to be human because of the atrocities that we (our species) do to other species and the destruction of our planet. The human being is THE MOST DESTRUCTIVE SPECIES of any on the planet Earth. We alone have caused the most number of any species of plants or animals to go extinct than any other. And this happens every second, every minute, every day. WE have contributed to and caused Global Warming. WE have DESTROYED MORE NATURAL HABITAT than any other species, making it harder for other species to survive in the wild. And this causes so many species to encroach upon "our" towns, villages, and lands, when in fact, it is US who are doing the trespassing upon THEIR lands. And what do we do when these poor animals come looking for food to survive? Kill them because they're hungry. They simply don't have any more habitat or hunting grounds because WE'VE taken it away for farming, neighborhoods, towns, logging, etc. This has GOT TO STOP! We need to find a way to co-exist with animals and plants somehow, and not continue in the present methods. It is barbaric and cruel, and causes the animals enormous pain. Have you no feelings at all? What if it were you in those cages? It could be, someday. Maybe then, you'd be begging for someone to end your suffering. And do you think that anyone would care enough to plead your case, much less answer? Think about it. Think very hard about it. Because the future of our Earth depends on what you do NOW, for WE are the caretakers of our planet, and what we do to the Earth impacts the generations to come. If we screw it up, the results sometimes don't show for many years to come. Indicator species (frogs, birds, etc.) are already telling us that we've done too much damage to the Earth and we need to correct it NOW. So stop what you're doing with the livestock and find a new way to handle the situation. PLEASE!!!! The Tazmanian Tiger is already extinct, and the Dingo is endangered. The Tazmanian Devil is located only on Tazmania, after being eradicated from Australia. What other Australian species do you want to lose?

2006-04-24 Diana Hartig Germany The EU has recently, and after years of petitioning, cut the financial support for live exports of animals destined for slaughter. As positive as this is, it means that this practice will relocate more and more to and via countries that still allow and back it - i.e. where it is still profitable. I appeal to the Australian Government to not continue to support such live exports from its own country. You keep an atrocity alive who's time has come. You may think that what happens to these animals once they have left Australian soil and the protection of Australian animal welfare legislation is not your concern. But it is ! Like everyone who eats meat is guilty of the murder committed in his name, you are guilty of the unspeakable suffering that is visited upon these creatures on their way to a cruel end. Please ban live exports !

2006-03-29 Joanna Ruxton Australia I saw some of the 60 minutes footage reporting on the animals sent for live export to the middle east etc. I found the scenes distressing, I couldn't watch the footage in its entirety. I'm disgusted, speachless, shocked. I don't know what else to say except that this MUST be stopped.

2006-03-19 Mrs M Green Australia These innocent and hapless animals are subject to the whims of human beings which, considering the terrible treatment that they suffer at the hands of live exporters, are intolerable and totally unacceptable! They have to stand in the own excrement for the duration of the voyage and suffer high levels of stress. Show your humanity and slaughter them in Australia with mercy and compassion prior to refrigerated shipment. This is utterly HEARTLESS. Show that you have a conciense!

2006-03-19 Hettie Nisbet Australia When oh when will someone in authority in Australia grow a backbone and simply STOP the live animal trade?? No one with an ounce of humanity can think it is acceptable to continue with this barbaric trade for one second longer. Why does Australia continue to prolong this torture of innocent animals by who I consider to be some of the lowest life forms on this planet. Someone DO SOMETHING NOW.

2006-03-11 Christine Palmer Australia I was appalled to see the way our cattle are treated in Egypt prior to slaughter (60 Minutes).

In addition, the loss to Australia in terms of industry and jobs cannot continue to be supported.

For God's sake,stop these barbaric live exports. How can you do this? Stop now !!!! I'm begging you!!
2006-03-06 Mrs. Denise E. DiBease U.S.A. Iam Canadian. My husband is American. We thought of visiting your country,but we will NEVER go now. You are just as bad as the torturers you knowingly send these gentle,helpless animals to----creatures created by God---living,breathing,feeling creatures who in my mind are better than most humans. You have proven this to me. I thought that Australia was a civiized country. How wrong I was. You are evil to do this!! EVIL!!! One day you will reap what you sow. You may have to feel the same unbearable pain that these poor cretaures feel. They must go mad from such agony. Be careful of your future. God is watching you.

2006-03-02 Nathan Chenco Australia I am extremely shocked at these inhumane acts by the people of the middle east.

2006-03-01 Karen Dennis-Smither England I am not really surprised to learn how the animals suffer. The human race can be the cruellest species to its own kind so what it does to other species should not be new knowledge. People who supposedly care for animals should insist on them being slaughtered nearest their source. If you can't guarantee humane treatment when animals leave your care, you shouldn't be entitled to have them in the first place. All our animals only ever leave our property when they are dead or in the case of farm livestock they are sent to the nearest abbatoir, transported by local, well-known people. If all the animals that are suffering in the world were able to make us hear, the sound echoing around the globe would be deafening. Animals really do suffer in silence. enter comments here)

2006-02-28 Jenny Landolt Australia I thought I lived in a country where all citizens were treated equally and fairly, with compassion and rights. Why is this not extended to our animal friends?? They too feel pain and suffering don't they?
2006-02-28 Ragan Allison Tasmanian You know the disgusting truth to this barbaric inhumane trade, now act to ban it forever
2006-02-27 karen chambers australia I'm appalled that in this day and age, as a supposedly civilised nation, we continue with this barbarous trade of live animals. Our government needs to develope some backbone and start dictating the terms. Compassion is not a dirty word, our animals deserve some!
2006-02-27 Tim and Suzanne Boutsis Australia (enter comments here)The export of live animals is inhumane and cruel. Surely, an alternative would be to have the animals slaughtered in Australia and the frozen, packaged meat exported. AUSTRALIA MUST TAKE AN ETHICAL STAND AGAINST THIS DEPRAVED TRADE. We should not accept animal treatment standards that do not conform to RSPCA guidelines. Please exert your political influence to stop Australia's involvement!
2006-02-27 Ryan Australia This is a disgrace and has to stop.

2006-02-27 lisa honeyman australia (enter comments here)I work for RSPCA QLD and I think that people honestly believe that animals are indispensible and that they don't feel.
2006-02-27 Melinda Crowhurst Australia The export of live animals is not something Australia should be proud of. It undermines the strong animal welfare rights adopted by Australians and is focused on profits, not animal welfare. I am disgusted that Australia is involved in such an act.

2006-02-26 Morgan Smith Australia The people who allow this sick gahstly treatment of animals, who allow the live export of these innocent souls are just as barabric as the people (like the ones I saw on 60 mins last night) who are torchering the animals, you may not be actually stabbing those animals in there eyes or slicing there tendons heartlessly but you may as well be.

2006-02-26 Jane Macintyre AUSTRALIA I support this petition that calls upon the members of the Senate to immediately, and without delay, ban the live export of Australian livestock
2006-02-25 Anne-Marie Dawson Australia I live near where live animals are brought by road to await live export from Brisbane port. The sounds comming from these helpless animals is dreadful! It is distressing to hear and see their scared cries and eyes. They have travelled many hours, in unbearable conditions, heat, dust, squashed on top of each other, no air, water, bumped and imjured and can sense the danger ahead of them. You only need to see this once in your life to know this is the truth. If we as humans, with beating hearts like these animals, and with the power to stop this barbarack practice, we have a duty to help them. They are born in our country, Australia, and are our responsibility! Do not send them to their death in an inhumane and cruel manner witch is ILLEGAL in Australia. You, as members of our Senate, who are put there by us to give us voices must listen, repeat and honour reasonable requests now. It is 2006 and we must stop these practices - STOP LIVE- EXPORT OF ANIMALS. And while I have your attention - STOP, IMMEDIATELY, ALL WHALE KILLING. As voter and tax payer I expect to be heard, paid attention to, and courtisely replied to, as is my right as a human being (read Basic Human Rights) and (mostly) proud Australian, who is also your employer, and expects all employees to act as instructed. Thank you. Anne-Marie Dawson, 29 Bolan Street, Balmoral, Brisbane 4171, Queensland.
2006-02-25 Kimberly Fung Hong Kong It is simply very selfish and not ethical at all for some people to let animals suffer from pains,hungers, uncomfortable, etc, just because they believe the taste of the meat will be fresher if animals are import ALIVE. Same for a lot of Japanese people, who like to put boiling oil on jumping fish, and then eat these fish alive due to fresher tastes; or cut sharks' fin, and then dump these bleeding sharks back into the sea. How can these people build their enjoyments on other creatures' great painful? Think of what will they feel if they were these animals? Simply selfish souls!

2006-02-25 Paul Tapp Australia (enter comments here)We are a western civilisation with an abiding respect for our animals, even with stringent slaughterhouse measjures to minimise their fear and suffering. Why should we turn our eyes to the east when it comes to sheep? The cruel, inhumane and disgusting way in which we treat our exported sheep, detracts from our standing and humaneness, as individuals and collectively as a humane race. Please push this matter into a conscience vote in our federal parliament.Abort the practise of live sheep exports!
2006-02-24 Tracy Schwalger Australia We have all seen what happened with the sheep, and i was physically sick when i saw on the news what happens with the cows, this should be stopped.

2006-02-22 Trish Darcy Australia humane treatment for all of gods creatures please - these countries are receiving out best meat - but at what cost? gready capatalists with no thought for the poor animals
2006-02-22 jeannette lyon australia God gave us authority over animal kingdom, He blessed them and Adam named them. He certainly did not give us authority to bully, torture, disrespect His creation. Greed has taken over and farm animals are at man's mercy. How would you like to be a sheep for awhile and go through all the miseries they go through? I bet you would change your mind pretty quickly. Be righteous and stop the cruelty.

Australia the caring country - not where some animals are concerned.
2006-02-19 June Cowley Australia I am sickened by the barbaric way our live animal exports are treated. As a country we should not close our eyes to the barbaric way they are slaughtered and treated. Where is our humanity!!!!

Everyone pass this petition onto your family and friends - lets get these votes up.
2006-02-19 Kristina Australia I'm not normally one to sign petitions, but a 10 second ad for next Sunday's "60 Minutes" program (channel 9 for the Victorians) featuring a story on the cruel and totally unnecessary pre-slaughter practices in some countries that receive live export Australian cattle, has left me in tears. We absolutely MUST stop the export of live animals from this country.

God gave us meat to eat, if we wanted to.But to have them suffer as well,..... I certainly hope that those at whose hands animals suffer, are not brought back by God into a world somewhere, where those animal handlers must wait their fate under duress and suffering.

Sheep are just like a labrador for Gods sake, just because they have little brains why do people treat them with such intense disreguard. would we do these things to a dog? and what is the difference? Please you hold the power to stop this disgusting way of treating helpless defenceless animals. Louise watson

2005-10-02 Jo McEwin Australia Australia prides itself on being a modern country with modern ideals..Why then is the transportation of live animals still being allowed to continue? Is it purely for profit? If so it makes no sense at all..not when jobs are being lost...when they could be created instead.This practice is medievil and in this age we as a compassionate people should know better..we are also thoroughly aware that this practice is also responsible for the transmission of zoonotic why does it continue?It makes no sense at all...

2005-09-28 Lauren Kelly Australia During live transport the livestock which underpin our Australian economy are subjected to grossly inhumane conditions. These conditions have been proven to be uneccesary. Australia deplores these actions and sends a call to action to members of the parliament, use your authority to end these barbaric practises.

2005-09-19 Trisha Roberts Australia "What do they know - all these scholars, all these philosophers, all the leaders of the world? They have convinced themselves that man, the worst transgressor of all the species, is the crown of creation. All other creatures were created merely to provide him with food, pelts, to be tormented, exterminated. In relation to them, all people are Nazis; for the animals it is an eternal Treblinka."

2005-09-13 silvia bioli italia the export oflive animals is cruelty.STOP!
2005-09-13 Sophie Ribergaard Australia I think it’s a barbaric and blatant act of cruelty that needs to be stopped. People intentionally bring innocent creatures into this world therefore immediately have a duty of care to uphold towards these animals. What kind of cruel, heartless, callous, insensitive, malicious individuals can inflict this kind of horrific torment on a fellow living, breathing creature and then have the balls to, in whatever way, try and pass of what they are doing as justified. There should be tougher penalties on animal abuse; the sadistic bastards who get off on this kind of cruelty should be put in prison where they belong. If someone is capable of harming another creature what makes people think that they aren’t capable of harming a human being. Cruelty is still cruelty wether it be inflicted on humans or animals and the same tough penalties should be handed down for both. Today’s society has a blatant disregard for this sort of thing; we are a blissfully ignorant group of individuals who live in a world where people who can’t seem to or intentionally choose not to, provide the basic care required in owning an animal, are ultimately, allowed to have children. Child abuse, animal abuse, domestic violence, it’s all the same, intentionally harming or neglecting those that are unable to look after or defend themselves. I think we as Australians need to wake up, get off our ever widening arses and do something about it. And it’s us as the people that need to take a stand, our politicians couldn’t give a rat’s arse about the cause, or any other as a matter of fact that doesn’t end up, in some way, providing benefits to themselves or the size of their wallets. At the end of the day it just doesn’t pay for them to invest money into saving the lives of innocent, abused and neglected animals. The practice of live animal export is an intentional and ignorant form of animal abuse which needs to be stopped immediately. Keep Australia’s animals in Australia!

Not only is it a terroble thing to do to an animal, but it is also responcable for fewer jobs (in this country) , and Aussie consemers paying higher prices in the shops .I say if other countrys want our sheep let them buy it after it has been boned out, packed, and boxed by Aussie workers.

I could not believe my eyes when I saw the pitiful condition of those animals and the lack of interest by this government. When you see helpless animals subjected to such cruelty you have to wonder what is wrong with this world? I am not an animal activist, I would not even call myself an extremist, but just a decent person that cannot stand to see such cruelty inflicted upon an animal that has no ability to help itself from the senseless cruelty from humans. Please try to use your position to make a difference and make some changes

So if we are talking money (which is always the issue with you greedy bastards)why dont you export them in better conditions so they dont all die in cramped spaces with no water before they have even got to the slaughter house? How would you like to be cramped up like that? Squashed in with your family to slowly watch them die. Id like to see that happen to you but not those poor innocent sheep!

2005-03-07 Lambchop Australia Sheep are cute cuddly animals just like any other pet. They don't deserve to be beaten, stabbed, left in hot temperatures without any cold water and good food to eat. All the government cares about is the money the get out of it. Saudi Arabian importers require sheep's appearance to be perfect in order to suit their ritual slaughter. So a white fluffy adorable sheep to have it's throat slashed for the ritual. What a waste of a good sheep and if they aren't perfect they are shipped back out for another 16 weeks on a stinking hot ship. Imagine how we would feel if we were put in a suitation like the sheep! No Water, No food, No good treatment, Beatings, stabbing, No sheep should be treated like this.

2005-01-21 Janhett Tayler Windglows UNITED STATES Animals are sacred and full of innocent Light Energy and deserve to be cared for and loved, not taken control of and being taken out of their natural habitat then taken like they are nothing of value, made to be transported against their will under conditions that are threatening to their lives, sold for money, all the while not being properly cared for, starved, and left to suffer, tortured or killed. I was an animal health technologist years and years ago and can tell you right now that I have seen just about everything done to animals by humans, and have seen them suffer and die, get killed, and suffer from various types of diseases. If the people that are doing these horrible atrocities to the animals do not stop, all of this will come back to them and it will be their Karma payed back to them just like everyone has, so please be aware not of only what you are doing to the animals, but be mindful of what kind of reward you will get for this, back to you again, for what you send out always comes back to you. Heed these words, and think about what you are doing. If you do not care, then mabie this is a good time to start!!!!!

2004-09-10 Laurence Glennie England i agree with someone further down the list that says they should at least be killed prior to shipping. having the attitude of "were going to eat them anyway, why not be as cruel as we like" is wrong, and im sure even non-vegetarians should be able to empathize and stop the suffering of these animals.

I have campaigned for more years than I care to remember to stop this disgusting abomination to no avail, except N.Z. was forced eventually to stop the exports to Mexico purely as a result of bad publicity in America.

2004-06-03 Satrina Brandt Australia The practice of exporting live animals is blatant cruelty. Not only are the transport conditions inhumane but the risk of exposure to disease is high and the methods of slaughter at their destination does not satisfy Australian standards and is often barbaric. How can the Australian government possibly justify this cruelty to animals?
2004-06-02 Katie Nash Australia Live export is an issue that needs decisive action. There are halal butchers in Sydney and other areas so there is no excuse for continuing to transport livestock to the middle east and other regions.

In 2002, more than 73,000 sheep and 17,000 cattle died on board export vessels due to disease and starvation etc. How is this justified and how can the Australian Government be immune from feeling responsible? I know that if these animals were treated as such in a backyard that the RSPCA would be called and the offender charged, so how is it 'ok' for animals to be treated as such on ships?

Not only are we taking thier lives, we are causing them to suffer cruely before killing them. I know that abatures have codes of killing. one example of this is to ensure one animal does not see another one getting slautered. it is blatently obvious to me that we NEED a similar rule to stop animal being crammed in a boat without room to move and animals dying all around them. Just because the countries we are exporting to have lesser morales and pathetic human/animal right laws does not mean that we should lower ourselfs to thier level. lead by example. i believe in this country. there are so many things that this govenment does right. please dont let me down with this...

2004-04-06 Jenny Banks Australia All living creatures feel pain - in the year 2004 our society must recognise and be responsible for the cruelty it inflicts on our animals.
2004-04-05 Dean Tan Australia To the members of the Senate. I write in order to educate you on the inhumane treatment animals are exposed to due to Live Export Trade. Further more do you Senators know that when sheep and cattle are exported, jobs are also being exported to overseas countries? It is simple logic and maths. Abattoirs are closing and money is being lost. Think of regional abattoirs closing and unemployment skyrocketing when question time comes up!!! Stop the cruelty to animals and human unemployment in Australia.
2004-04-04 Roksanda Ristich Australia If a religion permits such cruelty to other species that share our planet, then that religion should be seriously questioned. Religious beliefs and customs should only be respected and tolerated as long as no one gets hurt in the process - whether that one is human or non-human. No religion, custom or livelihood should be allowed to remain sacrosanct if it involves suffering to another living being - whether that being is human or non-human.

2004-03-31 Talia Balzan Australia Australia has laws aganist the halal butchery mithout sunning but are willing to send their cattle overseas and have it done with no stuning we have laws against child prostitution and it is like saying go overseas and do it the way in which the animals are treated can only be described as barbaric. People in sauidi Arabia say that they do not have the refrigeration to accept frozen meat yet the sacrifices are made in slaughter houses and are refrighertated before being given to the poor

2004-03-28 Donna Dabala Australia The live export trade has to stop.

2004-03-23 Nicolette Plant Australia Obviously money and material wealth means more to fat ugly buisness men and woman than being a human!! imagin what your kids will think when they know you killed innocent animals after you basicly tortured them for months.. your lucky these animals can't do the same thing to you!! you ignorant "beings" would be the first ones to ask..."why me?" well, i believe what goes around comes around..and when it does, and when you ask "why me".. you know why! i suggest you all stop being so cruel and inhumane.. just because they cant speak the same language as you, they have feelings, you might as well be racist.. you probably are. If the world is against racism, why are they accepting this, as far as im concerened this is way worse... WAKE UP!!
2004-03-14 Joel Brophy australia What is Life? Life is everything from coming from your moms womb till your last breath of air. Us our humans have pain killers and all types of drugs to get up through pain. Why should Animals such as sheep and cattle have to put up with induring pain just to save supplys money. Though animals are here for us to eat and make us grow they should not have to be subject to large amounts of pain just because the demand for them. People need to grow a conscience and start standing up for animal rights

As a farmer I have taken steps to ensure that my animals take a short trip in a truck to the closest Abattoirs in the state of Victoria. Live export will never get my sheep. Never. I am also hoping to encourage other farmers to do the same as myself. Marilyn Mangione.(enter comments here)

The slaughtering of these animals that you export are done with methods that your own country deems illegal, why would you send them somewhere to be treated as your country has decided is wrong? Please do not allow this to continue!

2004-01-25 Dr. Andrew Knight Australia As a veterinarian who has studied this issue I am certain that live exports, followed by feedlotting and slaughtering to normal Middle-Eastern standards, are both inimical to the welfare of the animals involved, and also so offensive to widely accepted standards of good animal care, that this industry would be immediately ended were most Australians and politicians aware of the conditions these animals endure. The live export trade should be phased out in favour of a chilled meat export trade in the short-term future.

2004-01-18 Luis Gonzalez usa We need to stop treating animals like products. As human beings we have a responsibility to not walk away from such atrocities (we created them after all). We are in no position to judge animals as "lesser-beings". There is no reasonable criteria for such a judgement. Even on the basis of something like "how much more conscious we are than other creatures"...that is not acceptable since the phenomenon of consciousness is not understood. We are very arrogant creatures capable of solving difficult Physics problems but we are also capable of slaughtering 5 million Jews. Let's re-think our attitudes towards animals. Maybe, if we can learn how to treat the Earth and other living creatures, we can dream of world peace...otherwise, our world is doomed. Thanks

2004-01-18 Brenda Kemp Australia There is no reason for Australia to continue its live export. Currently Australia exports around 60 thousand tonnes of frosen carcass meat to the Middle East--so much for them not having refrigeration. This market could be easily expanded, this would see greater economic returns for Australia, increased employment opportunities in rural and regional Australia--but more importantly, animal welfare standards could be applied, monitored, reviewed, and enforced. Ban live exports.

2003-12-31 Marcia Slackman USA Please use the power and influence of your position to halt this appalling treatment of animals. Science leaves no doubt that these animals are sentient beings - please imagine the terror, pain, and misery they are being subjected to. A great measure of a civiization is how it treats other helpless beings - completely at our mercy. I intend to boycott Australian products and spread the word through email until a halt is called to this live export of animals. Please demonstrate your leadership through ending this horrific practice. THank you.

2003-12-22 munchi lok united states More than 6,000,000 Australian sheep and 1,000,000 Australian cows, horses and goats are shipped to South East Asia and the Middle East every year ALIVE. These animals are crushed together on ships for long sea voyages, taking weeks or months to arrive at their destination. They are subjected to heat stress, sea sickness, disease, injury, starvation, inadequate supervision and care, ammonia poisoning, on board fires, ventilation breakdowns, storms and rejection of shipments. In 2002, more than 73,000 sheep and 17,000 cattle died on board export vessels. Those who survive the arduous voyage suffer even crueler practices prior to slaughter: Instead of being herded onto wharfs, they are often thrown from the ship, sometimes landing 5 metres or more down into waiting trucks, or concrete loading bays. Those too ill to walk are winched by chains tied around their foreleg, or by crane-hook inserted into their chest. Often their eyes removed by human thumbs, leaving the suffering animal in enormous pain. Slaughtering finally takes place by slashing of the throat, and without prior stunning. These are methods that are illegal in Australia. I kindly urge you to stop the live export of Australian animals. Or we will boycott all Australian tourist and products.

Animals and Humans have the same emotional states, only the ability to understand differs. I hope You can understand. Although I don't see many Australian products in the USA, I will boycott any I see until this practice ends, and I will ask others to do likewise. Vegans are not wimps! In fact, we tend to be stronger and healthier, and our numbers are growing every day despite all the propaganda against us!

2003-11-03 Donker NL Letter sent to Government of Australia on 23 September 2003 Attention of Minister Truss Subject: Long range livestock transports Dear Mister Truss, Action Against Poisoning is informed that more than 50.000 Australian sheep on board of the Dutch vessel Cormo Express in the Persian Gulf are denied entrance by the Saudis allegedly for veterinary reasons. In trade of livestock such a stand-off situation - that leads to massive suffering and loss of animal life - is foreseeable. Long range transports, especially under current conditions are very hard on livestock. They are risky as they are obviously calculated on maximum endurance for a one way trip and apparently no alternative diversion included. Besides the inflicted suffering on "regular" transports, for these risks alone long range transports of livestock should be banned. If the recipients want to eat the animals anyway, ship their frozen meat instead. And spare the animals, the traders, yourself and us the suffering, humiliation and shame of such animal welfare disasters. In short, please stop these irresponsible transports. Yours truly, Action Against Poisoning Europe

2003-11-01 Doreen Rothe Germany People do not have to eat meat. It is even far more healthier not to do so. So, to send all those poor creatures on those terrible journeys has no justification, at all. And, even, if we had to eat meat, there were other solutions.
2003-11-01 Gwen Ware U.K. Please substitute a carcase trade for the export of live food animals. Those shipped to countries where Halal killing is in force, suffer not only unspeakably bad conditions (despite the allegedly good protection laws)during the long voyage, but are subjected to an inhumane slaughter. Austraklia is a highly civililsed country - can it possibly allow live exports to continue??? Animals may not speak but they fell pain as much as the human race.

2003-11-01 Joan Garvey USA The abysmal treatment of live animals in transport is a black eye on Australia. The conditions for the animals is more than just inhumane, it is the worst kind of cruelty. If humans had to suffer this type torture, it would cease immediately. Animals are living, breathing, sentient creatures who feel pain and suffer just like other members of the animal kingdom, mankind.
2003-11-01 Sanja Salaj Croatia The way animals are being treated when exported and transported is the same if not worse as the way Nazis treated people when transporting them to their concentration camps. The way animals are treated on factory farms and dairy industries is just the same as those people were treated while staying in the concentration camps. If animals are God's creatures just as much as we are how can we pray to God and worship Him while treating our brothers and sisters that way?

2003-10-26 Suzanne Cass Australia It is SO heartening to see so many signatures and comments. I read somewhere that when humans approach animals like sheep and cattle, their eyes register fear and trepidation; ample evidence that they feel and think - but we knew that. We are led by a government devoid of morals and compassion towards the defenceless. These poor creatures (especially those on the Cormo Express) have endured weeks of atrocious conditions, standing in their own excrement (they can't move), most will probably now be blind, and the lucky ones are those ones who died early. All animals exported from Australia (and other countries who participate in this hideous trade) meet a brutal, torturous death from people who are clearly savages, but whom the Australian government clearly likes to do business with. There is NO excuse. You cannot justify the indefensible business of torturing innocent, defenceless creatures simply because they have a dollar value. MAINTAIN THE RAGE. PROTEST LOUD AND LONG to the Australian government and media.

2003-10-26 Marilyn J Mangione Australia If current situations are any indication of how oversease live export is going to continue, then it must stop right now. Not one more shipment should go. There must be an objective enquiry into this cruel inhumane barbaric practice. How can we in Australia, who have laws against such cruelties, allow our livestock to go to countries where they have no laws whatsover relating to the banning of cruel practices such as we are now hearing about in the middle east etc. It is so contradictory. The United Nations should be brought into this debate and there should be worldwide laws stopping cruelty to animals. This trade in live animals must be banned. We must give jobs back to our own countrymen. Why should we cater to religions which profess to be the one and only truth, yet they break a very fundamental law of God, which is cruelty to animals. In the Koran cruelty to animals is against the law of ALLAH. In the Holy Bible cruelty to animals is against the law of GOD. Do unto others as we would have them do unto us. Not just words, but a very significant statement. Beware all those who are cruel in any way to innocent animals, especially those animals which have been given to us to eat, especially those animals which we make money out of. Beware.Marilyn Mangione(enter comments here)

2003-10-24 Laura Beth Aaron USA In the broadest perspective, the highest ideals from the human race are mercy and compassion. Until we return to a system, or find a system beyond this capitalist nightmare that may be good economically, but rots the core of human decency and spirit, we have not evolved. All the money and technology will never ever replace the merits of goodness, and respect for all living beings. We have a strong obligation to change our eating habits to reflect our devotion to life, creation, nature, and each other. As long as we choose predation over peace, articulated by a vegan diet, no matter how artfully the dish is sauced or spiced, its still flesh and blood, and no matter how expensive the napkin is we wipe our mouths with, we still wipe blood. Cruelty, like war, begats cruelty. Grains and non-animal foods should be in those ships, not living, breathing , sentient, creatures. A shameful expression of human reverence for life!

But until the human moral midgets wake up, and only because, as a minority, we who understand the true nature of what is happening, we are too few to stop them, then at least we can keep them from drawing out the agony they inflict. I still think we should put all meat eaters together and let them practice their vice on each other and on those who agree with it, not on those who have no choice. Then, when they reduce their population (and after all the cannibals have always told us that human flesh is the most delicious of all) when they have at last eaten each other into extinction, then the survivors can come out of hiding and help to repeople a better world, where all suffering is avoided, as a matter of course...

2003-10-24 Susan L. Trout United States Ladies and Gentlemen: I am signing this petition because I strongly believe in decency, compassion, and human treatment of all life. What these sentient, "voiceless" beings are forced to endure is unconscionable and is completely unacceptable treatment in a civilized society. It is time for all of humanity to let go of customs and practices that do not respect and protect and prevent suffering and pain to ALL life. Just because something has been done over and over again doesn't make it acceptable, especially when we evolve and come to the realization that it is wrong and inhumane. End live animal export NOW! Thank you!

I hope those perpetrators of such cruelty will receive their just punishment. Obviously, they are devoid of any kind of feeling. Simply imagine how it will feel like if their eyes were gorged out and throat slit while ALIVE and CONSCIOUS!

Its a very slow journey of death from start to finish! The lucky ones died first after several weeks of standing around, to lie in shit and and fellow sheep walk (walking on the spot-as standing room only!) them into the growing shit pile. Australia is sinking very low indeed. Transport the dead in freezers, its much more humane than this attrocity. Think again and imagine what you'd prefer if given the choice as I doubt you would choose the ship travel even when supposedly done "well" and the poor animals are then off loaded to their slaughter!!! Stop this ridiculous & cruel industry now! The voice of many Australians are saying this, please listen.

2003-10-15 Andrea Morley Australia Not only do animals continue to suffer and die on route to their destination, but they are often killed under the cruellest of conditions. Whilst Australia has legislation to ensure animals are killed in the most humane manner we currently have available, most of the export countries have no such rules and Australia has no jurisdiction over how animals are treated once they reach their port of destination. Despite assurance from the exporters that animals do not suffer and that death rates are very low, there have been a string of disasters which have caused unnecessary and massive suffering. Last year alone death rates were above the acceptable level on 7 voyages. Throughout the 1990s over 150,000 sheep died en route to their destination. I fail to understand why animals cannot be killed in Australia and their carcasses be exported. This would not only alleviate a huge burden of suffering, but it would provide additional jobs for Australian workers and transportation of the carcass would be more efficient. This issue must be dealt with to prevent further cruelty
2003-10-15 Liz USA People forget that an animal is a living being and not just food. They experience emotions and physical pain just like humans do. The only difference is that they do not understand what is being done to them or why and the confusion makes the experience even more intense. Imagine if animals were doing these same things to humans...would we tolerate it if we had the means to control it? Would you do this to your pet(s) or child(ren)? To me, there is no difference. I believe that all life forms have a right to live without cruel conditions being forced upon them by another being. I hope that whom this concerns can understand and please put yourselves in the shoes of the tortured animals. Stop the violence and respect that we as humans share a world with other living beings.

This will at least prevent their suffering before their death. Federal funding for such a factory needs to be forthcoming.

2003-10-13 Richard Donato Australia What makes the Australian governement any diffrent than Adolph Hitler's rule in the Third Reich in WWII? they are doing exactly what he did, they are stopping the flow of information about this tragity, as it would damage them severly. Why are they allowed to control and monopolize the media industry in the fields of news and television? The government wants the australian people only to hear what what is in the governments best interest. if they let the news freely show what is going on, on these boats, they would lose their multi-million dollar corprations, and actualy be forced to work for a living. its also a fact that the people who own these live exportation corporations, own the tv channels. this must be stopped

2003-10-13 Jill Gershen United States The transport of live animals for commercial use constitutes abuse and cruelty in their worst form. Unless animals are being transported with their own best interests at heart, it should never happen. Travel is extremely stressful for animals who have no idea where they are going (or why) and who lack all control over their own lives. In addition, it proliferates the negative impacts of animals introduced onto non-native soil (including, but not limited to, parasites and disease). Animal transport has serious implications from both an animal welfare and an environmental standpoint.

2003-10-09 Aleta Daley Okolicsanyi Philippines As Thomas Edison said: 'Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are stills savages.' This is a barbaric practice and gives the lie to any pretense at compassion or civilized behavior. Yet it would seem that Australia is continually guilty of this indifference to animals; the fact that animals are completely vulnerable and are capable of suffering seems always secondary to human expediency. Their coldblooded killing of so-called feral cats and foxes on the pretense that they are protecting wildlife is one more example of this ruthless pursuit of expediency. Spaying and neutering would have solved the problem in a humane and civilized way.
2003-10-09 Carolyn Daley United States This is a very unhealthy practice and I think that the matter should be adressed with the United Nations because it seems to be a case where neither country is accepting responsibility and there must be a lack of a workable solution to meet the needs of the countries involved. I think the countries need to come together to come up with a solution. Obviously there are many costs involved. Obviously the receiving countries need their import and what price can they pay for the product. Yet there should be standards in place for export. It looks like an opportunity for the Australians to create a more healthy Process for the livestock and meat product industry.
2003-10-09 annie mclaren new zealand why the hell are you letting animals suffer when its safer, more humane and more hygenic to transport them in meat form? i'm not a vegetarian, nor an animal rights activist, but i still believe that animals should be treated in a humane manner. why dont we just act civilised for once. is it too much to ask?

2003-10-08 Chris Deacon England Having been involved in campaigns against the live animal exports trade in the UK, I realise what a cruel, barbaric and unnecessary trade it is. If farm animals are to be exported there is no excuse for not slaughtering them as close as possible to the farm on which they are reared and exporting them on the hook, and not on the hoof. I say this as a commited vegetarian and despite knowing there is no such thing as humane slaughter.

Mahatma Gandhi It were much better that a sentient being should never have existed, than that it should have existed only to endure unmitigated misery. Percy Bysshe Shelley (poet) My doctrine is this, that if we see cruelty or wrong that we have the power to stop, and do nothing, we make ourselves sharers in the guilt. Anna Sewell (author)

2003-10-06 Peter Cupstand New Zealand The Australian Prime Minister, John Howard, has officially condoned this atrocity. Mr Howard has the power to stop this cruelty happening, both now and in the future, yet does not and will not. The Australian PM has had his chance to be a good and decent citizen, but has turned that opportunity down. Put quite simply, the animals imprisoned on this ship are suffering a living and dying hell, something Mr Howard will not have to encounter until he leaves this mortal coil many years hence, as do we all. From that day forth he will not go to heaven, but will rot in hell for all of eternity for his cognizance in this matter.

As long as animals are confined in cages, there will be prisons as well -- for incarceration must be practiced and learned, in a small scale, inwardly and outwardly. As long as there are animal slaves, there will be human slaves as well -- for slavery must be learned and practiced, on a small scale --inwardly and outwardly." --Edgar Kupfer-Koberwitz, author, vegan, and animal advocate who was imprisoned in the Dachau concentration camp from 1940 to 1945

2003-10-01 AnneMarie Moynihan MSc (Hons), BSc. (Hon Britain The inhumane trade in live animals is set to end in the European Union in coming years, thanks to pressure from EU citizens. I urge you strongly to halt this evil business if you wish to include Australia among those who consider themselves civilised.
2003-10-01 Elizabeth Lewis-Cracknell UK Aniumals should not be exported on the hoof, but on the hook - there is NO excuse, in this day and supposedly "enlightened" age for the dreadful cruelty involved in this vile trade.

2003-10-01 Maxine Hawkins Australia I am horrified by the way that we treat our animals - all in the name of money. We are not a poor country and do not need to make our money from these inhumane export practices. Please stop this mode of export immediately.
2003-10-01 nicole sanderson AUSTRALIA This practise sickens me and should be ceased straight away without delay. Im shocked that our country allows this shocking display of cruelty to happen and continue - wake up australia
2003-10-01 Marcia Gilbert Australia This is such a disgrace. Aren't the live animals supposed to be in a healthy, calm state before being killed so that 'Halal' meat is edible as per the religious beliefs of the country that these poor animals are sent to. Well, you don't need to be Einstein to see that this is clearly not the case. Ban all live export immediately.

2003-09-28 anne-marie NL this is somting that must stop, and i hope that it will
2003-09-28 Marc Brinkerhoff United States I am shocked to read the letter about the inhumane treatment of farm animals being shipped to Asia. These are trusting creatures and to treat them like garbage is so disgusting to me that I am ashamed of man-'kind?' as a whole. Please do something to stop the abuse of all the shipped animals. Until people understand that the way they treat animals is a reflection of how they treat other people and one will learn anything. Well I guess it shows us that we humans as a race on this planet have a lot to learn. I sincerely hope that the words of the many people writing in will be heard to help the animals who are innocent and voiceless. Please, do what is right and just. Thank you for giving me this time to express my views. Peace always, Marc B.
