On Saturday February 4th, Australia sent a LIVE EXPORT ship from a port in Victoria, with 1200 cattle aboard to China to be slaughtered.
They were aged between 18-24 months and were mainly Black Angus as pictured below.
They will spend over a week on a ship, in treacherous waters, with extreme temperatures.
Unable to lie down at the same time, they are trapped in small pens with extremely hard and abrasive decking where they suffer from lameness due to hoof and leg injuries because of the flooring.
They are put on these ships because of money. Plain and simple.
But we MUST remember they are someone, not something. And we must keep on speaking out about how cruel this really is.
Animals should not be used and abused. Please choose compassion and not cruelty. #melbournecowsave #thesavemovement #banliveexport
