We don't want you to watch this video. So why are we sending it to you? Because it needs to be seen by the people who can stop this cruelty. We need your help to get it to them.
The Australian steer in the video was brutally killed inside a 'full inversion slaughter box' in Israel. This box would be illegal in Australia, the USA and the UK due to the extreme suffering it causes. But it is still deemed an 'acceptable' way for animals to die in the live export trade.
Once inside the box, cattle are tipped off their feet and turned upside-down. Terrified and completely immobilised, their necks are outstretched and exposed for a fully conscious throat cut. The agony and terror of this ordeal is undeniable.
We're reaching out to farming groups because, despite our differences, if ever there was one issue we should agree on, it's that no animal deserves to endure this pain and suffering. And while live export continues for now, this needs to stop, IMMEDIATELY.
What are we asking of them? It's simple. We want them to recognise the suffering caused by full inversion slaughter boxes and to choose to no longer allow exported animals to be killed in them.
They can make this decision today.
If you are on Facebook or Twitter, we need your help to publicly call on these groups:
* Cattle Council of Australia: Facebook
* National Farmers' Federation: Facebook / Twitter (@NationalFarmers)
* Australian Livestock Exporters Council: Twitter (@Pennifold)
* The Pastoralists & Graziers Association of WA: Facebook / Twitter (@WAPastoralists)
Please urgently send a POLITE message using the links above to let them know that this doesn't reflect your idea of 'animal welfare'. Ask them to unite on behalf of animals to get 'full inversion slaughter boxes' banned once and for all.
