The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) started this petition to Secretary of State and

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.
