1000 Flowers for the Planet - #410 Ban Live Export
Debating this difficult issue in a paragraph or two is not possible, but conversation and debate can be promoted. A very simple look at things would indicate that live export is not essential to Australian exports, because they are a mere 0.4% of total Australian exports (source: www.banliveexport.com). But live export does lead to animal cruelty in the form of animal deaths during transportation, and at the other end when animals are slaughtered in brutal ways while still conscious. Some animals suffer torture before their final death. Animal cruelty should not be an option, anywhere, for any reason. We are supposed to be intelligent, humane beings, so surely there is a solution to this problem that can satisfy everyone concerned. It is not our right to take anything we like from this planet and behave as we please. We are supposed to be civilised. Animal cruelty does not demonstrate civilised human beings, yet it seems to be happening everywhere, by all races. Let’s get together to do things better.
