Dear Honourable Mc Gauran,
PETA US and Animals Australia recently released the results of a jointly funded undercover investigation, which aired on Australia’s 60 Minutes and exposed horrific cruelty in the live-export trade. Video footage from the investigation graphically confirms what PETA has said all along: The Australian government and live-export industry are lying through their teeth when they say that animals are treated humanely at their destinations. What befalls sheep and cattle when they arrive at Middle Eastern docks and slaughterhouses is illegal in Australia, the United States and Europe.
As a result of the video footage, Australia has temporarily suspended live exports to Egypt. This is not enough.
Every year, millions of terrified sheep and cattle are hauled to Australian docks. They are so frightened and confused that they jump high into the air and come crashing to the ground, collapsing in the frenzy of being herded onto ships, where they are crowded together like inanimate objects and sent to the Middle East. For those who survive the gruelling trip, the nightmare has just begun.
Therefore I urge you to permanently ban all live-animal exports now.
I demand that any slaughter of Australian animals take place in Australia, where the animals are under the protection of Australian laws.
