The world will never be "civilized" until we all start treating our animals better -
"The question is not, Can they reason? nor, Can they talk? But rather, Can they suffer?"
--Jeremy Bentham, 19th century Philosopher, Oxford University.

Cher I sign, noted and shared in Facebook with the following comment:
I don't believe in humane slaughter, there is not such a thing, BUT since the fight for animals lives is enormous and the consumption of animals over power compassion for their lives for many humans, I signed this petition Just so these innocent animals don't suffer before death strike them so some people can have their flesh.

How many saw the expose on the rise in CHINESE in the BILLIONS now eating the same red meat from those animals we Westerners were already creating such harm to? These innocent beings are controlled from conception unto horrific death, shipped over to CHINA as the status symbol of buying dead animals rises, along with the ivory and rhino horn and all other ruinous animal parts. Our world will END, people. Do you not see how filthy it all is, how toxic, how poisoned... all rivers are filled with excrement and pollutants now, and underground aquifers are drying out due to this crime against LIFE? Most water BY FAR goes into the raising of crops to feed ANIMALS AS MEAT, and to these animals for their thirst, and the excrement and hormones and antibiotics and blood pour into the waters, and that is only the beginning of the overwhelming filth that Mother Earth is over run by now.

I am not British but I have signed many petitions on the issue of sending live farm animals from Austrailia to other countries. It's really inhumane to expect farm animals to survive that kind of voyage even if they were fed adedquate food & water. Animals who have lived on land all their lives should not have to be understand being shipped on water or transported on land. It's all inhumane.

I am also unable to sign this petition as I am from Australia. As you probably know, there has been a lot of controvesy here regarding live exports and it was actually suspended for 1 month (should have been a 6 month ban). The pathetic farmers and polititions just don't understand that animals are not sea faring creatures (I know a lot of humans that cannot handle being on a boat). I have researched the Koran and the halal method of killing animals and the countries that demand live animals so they may be killed in the halal way do nothing of the sort. It is an excuse for these sick people to torture and abuse these sentinet animals that have already suffered enough. The powers that be need to find their compassion and commonsense so this practice is stopped. Money is not enough of a reason to inflict horrible torture to these animals. It makes me sick to the stomach.
