Spot the Difference!

Welcome to the first of our exciting "Spot the Difference" series! We find that animal abusers are continually suffering from absurd delusions that animals like being locked in tiny cages that they like being mutilated, and that skinning them alive is not such a bad thing You just have to take one look at their advertising to realise this. In short, we think they're a bit out of touch with reality. So we thought we'd give them a helping-hand and point out what a normal, sane person (who doesn't make money from animal cruelty) can clearly see.

That brings us to our first Spot the Difference candidate. You could almost forgive the live export industry for suggesting that Australia has the 'world's best practice' when you see what they think a live export ship looks like. The sticker below was sent out by Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) to try and convince people that shipping animals half way round the world only to be killed is much like sending them on a luxury cruise (or is it their depiction of Noah's Ark?).

MLA's Live Export Joke

And here's what cramming tens of thousands of frightened animals into a live export ship actually looks like.

Sheep on an actual Live Export Ship

Sadly that's not the worst of it. Thousands of Australian animals die on these old ships every year, and those who survive the long journeys have their throats cut whilst fully conscious at the other end which makes live export one of the cruellest industries on the planet.

So over to you what tips would you have for MLA to help make their live export stickers a little less laughable? Can you spot the difference?

That's quite disturbing that people can be so delirious.

I'm surprised the animals don't have a personal bed and waiter...

How stupid do those companies think we are.

People who fall for this rubbish should be punished, though not nearly as badly as MLA themselves. The sticker is ridiculous.

I'm surprised that people arent feeling insulted. Do they really think that the public is that ignorant and stupid??

I live at an agricultural college and someone actually stuck this sticker on my door to get me angry.
My retaliation - writing lyrics to Propaghandi's Meat is Murder in huge letters on my door.
People got very annoyed and insulted over it. And they were taken off within 24hours. I still put up a pro-vege quote most days - but it gets taken down.

In case you're interested here's a good radio piece on the death rates of animals in live exports: http://www.radioaustralia.net.au/connectasia/stories/200907/s2613610.htm
