Une autre lettre type pour le transport des moutons merci !!
Lettre adressée au ministre du Tourisme en Egypte demandant de renforcer les lois de protection des animaux (il s'agit ici du transport de moutons)
Merci de faire parvenir avec vos coordonnés à :
Mr. Mohamed Zohair Mohamed Wahid Garana
Minister of Tourism
32 Ramsis St.
El Abassia Square
Dear Minister Zoheir Garanah
I have recently viewed video footage taken in Cairo showing terrible abuse of animals. The footage showed sheep being dragged, bound with rope, shoved into car boots, tied onto car roofs, and thrown trussed on their backs into trucks.
The footage also showed cattle in the streets of Cairo having their leg tendons cuts to disable them prior to slaughter. Similar evidence revealing this brutal treatment of cattle was taken in Cairo’s Bassateen abattoir earlier in 2006 – proving to the international community that such barbaric and unacceptable slaughter practices are routine in Egypt.
I am aware that Egypt is a signatory to the OIE (World Animal Health Organisation) and yet the basic standards required by the OIE regarding the handling, transportation and slaughter of animals clearly have not been implemented as yet in Egypt.
Currently the terrible treatment of animals in Egypt is impacting on Egypt’s international reputation and convincing tourists from all countries around the world to consider other destinations more appropriate to visit.
I appeal to the Egyptian government to pass and enforce strict animal protection laws to prohibit such terrible practices and to raise awareness of the importance of treating animals humanely. The passing of such laws will be applauded by the international community.
