We demand the UN create legislation to STOP and BAN export of live animals for slaughter


We demand that the United Nations create legislation to STOP and BAN the export of live animals destined for fattening or slaughter abroad

Every year millions of live animals including pigs, cattle, sheep, horses, goats, chickens, turkeys, ducks, geese are exported. They suffer gruelling journeys, that take days, even weeks in often overcrowded conditions. During the journey, they can become ill or injured, suffer stress, fear and pain. They often slip, slide and fall, arriving covered in excrement, Terrified animals can fight back and maybe maimed, blinded or hoisted to the ceiling by their legs to protect staff. All may be beaten or kicked.

They may continue to a third country. These animals have been recorded by journalists as being without food and water for long periods, sometimes dying on the onward journey and arriving at their destination filthy, injured or standing on the carcasses of animals that have died. In the summer months, the ships can be very hot causing further discomfort for the animals.

Some countries have no animal welfare legislation in place and practice inhumane methods of slaughter that include being:

  1. hoisted to the ceiling by one rear leg when fully conscious and slaughtered.

  2. deliberately injured, tendons cut to restrict movement when handling.

  3. restrained fully conscious bulls hacked to slit their throats.

  4. restrained and hit with a sledgehammer.

  5. blinded by being stabbed in the eyes.

Slaughter practices in Turkey, the Middle East and North Africa are immensely cruel. They are, moreover in breach of the international standards on welfare at the slaughter of the OIE (World Organisation for Animal Health). Sending animals to countries in which they will be slaughtered in ways that are cruel and in breach of international standards on animal welfare does not “pay full regard to the welfare requirements of animals”.

Animal Rights Advocates Speak Out in Mersin: "Live Animal Trade Must Be Banned"



alt

The Independent Collective for Animal Rights and Animal Rights Investigation Committee issued a press release after a NADA ship coming from Brazil and reportedly carrying 25 thousand 175 cattle in adverse conditions arrived at Mersin Harbor.

The meeting held at Mersin Journalists Association headquarters and attended by Republican People's Party (CHP) Mersin MPs Fikri Sağlar and Serdal Kuyucuoğlu called for a complete ban on the live animal trade.

Authorities had declared that 975 thousand live animals would be brought to Turkey from different countries by the end of 2018. Animal rights activists had argued that universal principles are not observed in animal transportation and that present conditions constitute animal cruelty as well as a threat to public health.

The ship set sail despite court order

A local court in Brazil had ruled against the embarkation of the ship for reasons stated in the report, whereas authorities in Turkey had not even allowed the ship to be searched, the press release stated.

"Despite the court's cease and desist order obtained in the case filed in Brazil against the NADA ship for all of these reasons, politics and trade have joined hands to overcome the judiciary and have the ship set sail, while an official complaint issued by the Mersin Bar Association in Turkey failed to lead legal authorities to act or to allow for an independent committee to conduct an inspection of the ship."

Hundreds of thousands of animals will be carried in worse conditions

Animal rights advocates called relevant ministries to action:

"This will not be the first nor the last death journey. News that 975 thousand live animals will be carried under atrocious conditions from various different countries to Turkey by the end of 2018 has already been covered by the media. We condemn all countries, foremost Brazil, engaging in live animal trade and urge the Food, Agriculture and Animal Husbandry Ministry to put an end to this bloody trade immediately. We call on the public in Turkey to not be a party to these crimes, and to respect sentient animals' right to life." (ÇT/PU)
