Many cows are raised for slaughter in Ireland, but they are protected under animal rights laws that regulate their quality of life and ensure a quick, humane death. However, thousands of cows are in danger of being shipped off to a different

Ban live export worldwide. These animals are being exported to the Middle East where they will face the most horrific slaughter imagineable. They will have their leg tendons slashed so they cannot walk, they will have their tails twisted and broken, they will have their eyes gouged out, they will be beaten and shocked with electric prods, then they will have their throats hacked open whilst still fully concious and left to bleed to death on the filthy, stinking floors of the equally filthy, stinking slaughterhouses. While this is happening, the so-called 'men' will be shouting and cheering every time an animal slips and falls to the floor, they will quite happily kick, slap, punch and drag the poor animal every which way and then gladly watch its life drain away for their perverted pleasure. Wake up Ireland, you already have enough 'dirty deeds' on your hands as the horse-meat scandal started in your country, and with thousands of abandonded horses still waiting to be slaughtered where will their meat end up??? And the whole world knows you send Irish greyhounds to China which are killed and eaten or skinned after they have finished racing. Shame on you, Ireland.

Why must the human race show such cruelty to the Fauna & Flora of this world??? It's heartbreaking
I wish more would listen to the First Nation of America. They live in nature and with it.

Cows deserve to be treated humanely. They deserve so much better and apparently Ireland thought so as well when they thought it important enough to protect them under animal rights laws that regulated their quality of lives and ensure a quick, humane death.
These are sentient, intelligent, emotional beings. Do not knowingly send them away to experience certain, unspeakable prolonged misery, suffering, torture, fear and slow grotesque deaths. Do not do this to the beautiful cows that give us so much. It is wrong on every level in every way. You now have an opportunity to lead by example Mr. Simon Coveney, and the world is watching the fate of these 2,900 sentient, emotional, innocent beings.
Don't under mind the progress and integrity of what Ireland has achieved for its cows and livestock.
Surely, the people of Ireland deserve better from their Minister of Agriculture.
