Just came across this - Ireland is joining the horrific live export to Libya.
ADDS LOOKING FOR ANIMALS TO EXPORT MUST BE STOPPED….
We have urged DONEDEAL to remove the LIVE EXPORTS add asking for cattle to export. We have forwarded this request stating the cruelty aspect and enclosing a video.
They have to get back to me today. The advertisements are as follows.
ACTION TO DO NOW!!!!

- EU Animal Transport legislation
Council Regulation (EC) No. 1/2005 on the protection of animals during transport lays down standards for animal transport. It includes requirements for animals to be unloaded, rested, fed and watered at set intervals during long journeys, but it does not put any limit on the overall length of journeys that animals can be taken on.
Those GOING TO LIBYA will be up to 24 hours on the ships.
Will update - it came via A.F.A.R. No petition found yet.
All action taken. The answer is to stop the meat industry and the only way for that to happen is for people to decide they do not want a plateful of cruelty and terror for their meal. Not a difficult decision to make when there are huge quantities of alternative meals available these days. There is no excuse and 'I like meat' is simply no reason. I like it too alive and healthy, and enjoying a long,cruelty free life with a natural ending like we would wish for our pet dog or cat.

he was just a baby...
Young calves pushed, shocked with electric prods, hit and dragged up a metal
ramp to be slaughtered... Some, too weak to stand, are thrown into the
slaughter chute. This shocking footage, provided to Animals Australia, was
taken at an abattoir in Northern Victoria....

As a person with ethics I am appalled by yet another of the many so-called 'isolated incidents' of obscene cruelty to cattle in Indonesia. This is what you condone when you allow the trade in lives to continue: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-01-07/indonesian-cattle-suspended-by-rope/4455908
Whether or not the animals pictured here were born in Australia is immaterial. It is now common knowledge that the practice of sending live animals on ships to other countries to be tortured to death is no longer acceptable by civilised people in the modern world.
If you really care so much about the welfare of animals as you claim, then have the intestinal fortitude to stand up and do something to stop it now, for good.
Not only the Australian voters are watching closely to see what your next move will be, but the whole world.

I urge you to place video cameras in slaughterhouses and factory farms to watch for improper procedures and inhumane handling of animals.
Voluntary surveillance would be appropriate, as undercover investigations have found cows being chained, dragged, rolled, kicked and jabbed in an effort to make them stand and be led into a chute for slaughter.
Workers prodded the animals with forklifts and shot powerful streams of water into their nostrils to induce them to move. These are just a few of the abuses out of thousands.
Video cameras are an excellent, economical supplement or alternative to hiring, training, and staffing more USDA inspectors.
Video cameras would help create more transparency in animal agriculture and would likely result in better accordance with the laws protecting human health and preventing animal cruelty.

To mark cows for identification, ranchers restrain the animals and press hot fire irons into their flesh, causing third-degree burns, as the cows bellow in pain and attempt to escape. Male calves' testicles are ripped from their scrotums without pain relievers, and the horns of cows raised for beef are cut or burned off.
While "on the range," most cows receive inadequate veterinary care, and as a result, many die from infection and injury. Every winter, cattle freeze to death in states such as Montana, Nebraska, and North Dakota. And every summer, cows collapse from heatstroke in states such as Texas and Arizona.
After about a year of facing the elements, cows are shipped to an auction lot and then across hundreds of miles to massive feedlots—feces- and mud-filled holding pens where they are crammed together by the thousands. Many arrive crippled or dead from the journey.
Cattle on feedlots are fed a highly unnatural diet to fatten them up. This causes chronic digestive pain—imagine your worst case of gastritis that never goes away. The stomach becomes so full of gas (a condition called bloat) that breathing is impaired because of compression of the lungs. According to a study published in the Journal of Animal Science, this diet also causes potentially fatal liver abscesses in as many as 32 percent of cattle raised for beef. Those animals who escape this fate may still suffer from a severe increase in stomach acid, causing ulcers to form, resulting in a condition (acute acidosis) in which bloody fluid rushes into the rumen and kills the cow.
The feedlot air is saturated with ammonia, methane, and other noxious chemicals, which build up from the huge amounts of manure, and the cows are forced to inhale these gases constantly. These fumes can give the cows chronic respiratory problems, making breathing painful.
Cattle raised for food are also regularly dosed with drugs such as antibiotics to make them grow faster and keep them alive in these miserable conditions. Instead of taking sick cattle to see a veterinarian, many feedlot owners simply give the animals even higher doses of human-grade antibiotics in an attempt to keep them alive long enough to make it to the slaughterhouse.
