Apologists for cruelty never hesitate to try to turn reality on its head.
Newspaper The Australian recently reported that two companies have been found to be in violation of the animal welfare standards for Australia's hideously cruel live-export trade. Australia's Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry, Joe Ludwig, insists that the regulatory system is working, despite the fact that it was animal activists who documented cruelty – not those responsible for government or industry oversight!
Stories like this serve as a reminder of how much still needs to be done for the millions of sheep who will be packed onto filthy, crowded ships for weeks at a time and sent to slaughter in Africa or the Middle East. Will you strengthen PETA's work to stop the suffering of these and all animals by making a gift online right now?

Joe Ludwig's absurd contention is par for the course among Australian government officials who consistently defend many of the sheep and wool industry's worst abuses, such as the practice of mulesing sheep. Indeed, Australian companies almost seem to have been given a pass for cruelty. One of the two companies that was found to be in violation of the new standards I mentioned above had previous violations. That company – International Livestock Export – was involved with the Cormo Express, a ship on which 5,691 sheep died after it was refused entry to ports in the Middle East.
Live export is an undeniably cruel trade. When Australian farmers no longer consider the sheep on their farms to be a productive source of wool, the animals are often shipped overseas to abattoirs. Their journey from a farm to a bloody killing floor in Africa or the Middle East often involves weeks of confinement – from the truck on which they are transported for hours without food and water to the huge, multi-storied ships on which they are crowded by the thousands for a long voyage overseas. Some of these sheep will perish slowly from illnesses that are passed among the tightly packed animals. Others will starve to death, as they do not recognise the dry pellet food they are given on board or are unable to reach the troughs. Lambs unfortunate enough to have been born on these massive ships are sometimes trampled and killed by others they are confined with.
PETA and our international affiliates are leading the global effort to open the eyes – and hearts – of consumers and regulators around the world to the intense misery of animals condemned to the live-export trade. With your generous support today, we can expand our work for sheep and other animals who are so horribly abused by industries like live export.
When PETA Australia shared evidence of cruelty and concerns over live export with Agriculture Minister Joe Ludwig, he refused to take action. That's why we're doing all we can to ensure that the wool industry and the officials who are protecting its horrific practices know that the wholesale cruelty I've described here cannot continue. Whether we're pressuring decision makers, liaising with retailers and designers, building awareness through publicity and demonstrations or exposing the horrors of wool production that the industry tries so hard to hide – we're doing all that we can to help sheep and tackle this issue from every angle.
Your gift right now will allow us to continue exposing the horrors of the wool industry and the live export of sheep and to organise attention-grabbing demonstrations that raise awareness and put pressure on decision makers to make changes that affect all animals.
Thank you for everything you do to help end cruelty to animals.
Kind regards,

Ingrid E Newkirk
Founder

PS Stopping live export can help stop the suffering of millions of sheep every year. Please help us end the live-export trade's "free pass" for animal abuse and save more animal lives by making a secure gift online right now.

Sheep are intelligent animals who feel pain and suffer, just as humans do. Yet the way sheep are treated by the live-export trade both aboard ships and upon arrival in the Middle East would horrify any compassionate person. Starvation, exposure to extreme temperatures and painful and debilitating diseases are common in this horrific industry and contribute to the miserable deaths of thousands of sheep each year.

Won't you please raise your voice against the suffering of sheep in the live-export trade and other forms of cruelty to animals by making a special gift online right now?

Stand up for sheep – sign our petition

When sheep are no longer able to produce enough wool to generate profits for Australian farmers, these gentle animals are sold for slaughter and often begin a hellish, weeks-long journey to the Middle East and North Africa. In live export, terrified animals are crammed onto sweltering, multi-tiered ships, where they often endure weeks of utter misery. What awaits them at the end of their journey, if they survive the deplorable conditions on board, is equally horrifying.
You can support PETA's work to end this abuse by signing our petition to the Australian government right now!

Every year, millions of individual sheep are victims of the live-export trade. The voyage to abattoirs in the Middle East or Africa can take weeks, during which time it's not uncommon for sheep to succumb to the rampant disease and oppressive heat that are common on the ships or to fail to recognise the pellets in the feed trays as food. The bodies of dead animals are sometimes tossed overboard or thrown into massive grinders that spew their remains into the ocean.
When they reach the Middle East, the surviving sheep are often kicked, beaten and dragged off the ships by their ears, horns and legs. Some are then thrown into the backs of trucks, often sustaining broken limbs as a result, or stowed in the trunks of cars in the scorching heat. Almost all face a terrifying end in which their throats are cut while they are still conscious.
In 2005 PETA US and Australian activists released the results of a joint undercover investigation that exposed shocking cruelty to sheep in the live-export trade. The Australian Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry insists that the regulatory system is working, despite the fact that it was animal activists who documented cruelty in the live-export industry—not those responsible for government or industry oversight!
The time to stand up against the live-export trade is now!
I hope I can count on you – someone who truly cares deeply about animals – to support our efforts to end this and other abominable cruelty by signing our petition today.
Your signature will allow us to continue exposing the horrors of the wool, meat and live-export industries and organising attention-grabbing demonstrations that raise awareness and put pressure on decision-makers to make the critical changes needed to save animals' lives.
The international outcry sparked by the work of PETA and our affiliates has resulted in promises of industry and government reform, and a growing number of retailers – including Gap Inc, H&M, Abercrombie & Fitch, HUGO BOSS, Adidas and UNIQLO – are moving away from wool from mulesed lambs or have banned it outright. With the media's attention currently on the live-export trade, we must act now to fight against that abuse as well.
No one speaks out for animals with a more powerful voice than PETA and our affiliates. From getting major companies to pledge not to conduct or fund animal tests to partnering with renowned celebrities and designers to promote cruelty-free fashion, PETA and our members and supporters like you are animals' best allies.
With your help today, we can do even more to shut down the live-export trade.
Please sign our petition to the Australian government right now. Millions of sheep need your support.

Help End the Hideously Cruel Live Export Industry

Every year, millions of Australian sheep are crammed onto multilevel, open-decked ships bound for ports in the Middle East and North Africa. When they arrive, they are dragged to shore as if they were sacks of coal, and their throats are cut while they are still conscious.

PETA US and Animals Australia have recently released the results of a joint undercover investigation that exposed unspeakable cruelty in the live-export trade. The horrors revealed in the investigation show the real-life experience of thousands upon thousands of sheep.

No animal should ever suffer the hellish conditions of the live-export trade or the terror of cruel slaughter methods. Take action below by contacting Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard and asking her to put an end to this horrific practice today.

SubjectI was horrified to learn about the cruelty involved in the live export of sheep from Australia to the Middle East.

Sheep are intelligent animals who feel pain and suffer, just as humans do. The treatment of sheep aboard ships and upon arrival in the Middle East would horrify any compassionate person.

Animals in the live-export trade are crammed onto extremely crowded multilevel ships and spend weeks in reeking, squalid conditions. There are so few workers that even basic care is impossible to guarantee. Exposure to extreme temperatures, starvation and painful and debilitating diseases are common and result in the deaths of thousands of sheep each year. I urge you to take immediate action to ban live exports of animals.MessageSignoff By signing up here and giving us your contact details, you're acknowledging that you've read and you agree to our privacy policy.
