Save this date: Live export exposed!

Tags: live export, investigation, Animals Australia, sheep, cattle, cows

Mark this date in your diary, because you won't want to miss this! Everyone is talking about the story that will air on Monday night (30th May) on Four Corners! The program will feature never-before seen footage from Animals Australia's recent investigation into the treatment of Aussie cattle exported live to Indonesia.

Check the countdown now -- www.BanLiveExport.com!

Every year, millions of animals born into Australian care are exported live, to be killed in countries where there are no laws to protect their welfare.

Over the past seven years, Animals Australia has carried out investigations into the treatment of animals exported live to the Middle East. Footage from past investigations has repeatedly shown the live export industry is happy to export animals to countries regardless of how badly they will be treated. When exposed on national TV, evidence provided by Animals Australia led to a ban on live sheep exports to Egypt, and created massive public opposition to the cruel trade.

This coming Monday night, ABC1's Four Corners will air exclusive footage of exported Australian cattle filmed by Animals Australia investigators in Indonesia.

So tune in and tell all your friends and family to watch this groundbreaking story!
Four Corners airs at 8:30PM, Monday 30th May on ABC1.

« Overwhelming response to live export campaign!     Ultra fine wool? Ultra cruel wool. »

Australians cannot stand much more of this live export cruelty. New Zealand ceased their live exports after viewing other footage filmed by Animals Australia. Yet our Government are worried about upsetting their industry mates, and their liaisons with other countries. All at the expense of our animals. It is WRONG on every level. SHAME SHAME SHAME on Senator Ludwig and John Cobb MP. And also Julia Gillard who doesn't have the balls to end it.

Hoping there's no gore, I don't like gore, and kind of ironic about the whole Julia Gillard not having the balls to end it, but I so agree

Seeing live export kind of makes me wonder what is in the hearts of our government? Have they watched this? And if they have, did this not make them sick? It scares me more than anything. sad

Pretty sure I won't be sleeping tonight, so I'm going to spend the time drafting a letter to the PM, asking for change.

Make sure you write to your MPs and Senators!!

https://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=204579662916927

This event explains how to grab their email addresses - for some senators, you'll need to use their 'online contact forms' but just copy & paste into each one, doesn't take long!

So horrible watching these beautiful animals being mutalated and treated so cruelly all before they are killed. How can humans do this - seriously!!!! i have sent my letter off to the PM already and are doing anything i can to help.

Thing that gets me is i have spoken to a couple of people about it today who only saw a tiny flicker of four corners last night who both said - 'oh know i couldn't watch it makes me sick' yet they are both meat eaters??? what the............

I will not be travelling to Indonesia or any other Muslim country ever again. If we stop exporting they will find cattle somewhere else. I say hit them in their wallets. Its not doing the Aussie beef industry any favours either.

watched this and cried most of the night,
my eyes were swollen for crying so much.
i swear the people who can do this to animals have to heart and dont deserve to live,
i know that if i came across one of the people who does this to animals i would probably kill them,

I watched it and asked a few of my friends to watch it (I'm not sure if they did or not) and it was honestly horrific.

This needs to stop, immediately.

I didn't watch it as I am overseas (country that blocks almost every website.. except some pages). Also, I should say that I do not think I can ever make myself to watch all of it... but I can tell you that after all the comments I have seen on online News, some pictures (non-too graphic) and also some other journalist comments in websites....I have become vegetarian (4 days and going on)..... I read once, but didn't get it (WHAT AN IDIOT I WAS!)... if you cannot watch an animal being kill for you to eat him/her, you shouldn't eat any kind of meat!...Eating my own words now!! I can't wait to go back to OZ land in 3 weeks time to get into my new full vegan life!! clap

It saddens me that this can go on and members of parliament only decide to do something when it's brought to the public's attention in such a shocking way.
Though, it does demonstrate the importance of voicing our disapproval of such cruel treatment of animals.

Live animal export is barbarick, horrible, disguisting and even sadistic. It should be banned NOW. It has been exposed about the treatment of cattle in Indonesia, but what about the rest of world. Are the practices in Australian abbitoirs much better?? Even if there was a ban to export to Indonesia, what about the animal welfare in other places around the world? Why is there not International Animal Cruelty laws?? I doubt Aussies would expose and protest in countries where there is little concern for Human Welfare let alone for the poor animlas. It a very cruel world we live in.

Live export of animals is a horrible trade and should be banned for good these monsters do NOT know how to treat animals properly or with love and care and what they have put some of our cattle through watching the video by lyn white had me in tears and so angry at what these monsters done to those darlings how can anyone who have a love treat any living creature in that way at all.Animals have feelings just like us humans and they hurt aswell they can experience everything we can and as humans we have no right to treat animals like this.
