Stop live exports of farmed animals from the UK

    1. Sponsored by

      The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA)

Each year tens of thousands of live farm animals are shipped overseas from UK shores to the continent. Loaded onto crowded trucks, their gruelling journeys can take days as they travel as far as Spain and Greece only to be slaughtered at their destination. Many animals, such as calves and sheep, suffer stress and exhaustion, hunger, thirst and rough handling - some even die in transit.

These poor animals can’t speak out, but you can. Help end their suffering and lend your voice in calling on the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) to stop live exports of farmed animals from the UK.

Secretary of State
Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs
Live exports from the UK cause many thousands of calves and sheep to suffer. I believe there should be an alternative trade in meat and urge you to stop live exports of farmed animals immediately. Furthermore, until this cruel trade is brought to an end, I call upon the Government to ensure the welfare of the animals involved by implementing 100% inspections at the port.

Sincerely,
[Your name]
