"Animal transports do not taste good! Several million animals are carted through Germany's streets to be tortured, fattened and slaughtered for the production of meat, milk and eggs. We must stop eating animals for our nutrition immediately. This includes abolishing animal transports and the unimaginable suffering caused by them. The German government and the European Commission must act urgently for this. Let us remind you which steps need to be implemented immediately!"

Ms. Julia Klöckner, Federal Minister of Food, Agriculture and Consumer Protection (CDU)
Mr Vytenis Andriukaitis, EU Commissioner for Health and Food Safety
Madam Minister Klöckner, Commissioner Andriukaitis,

through the current campaign "Truck You - animal transports do not taste" of the German animal welfare office e. V. I have learned from the unsustainable and painful conditions that animals experience on animal transporters.
In Germany alone, 3.7 million animals are transported to the nearest fattening or breeding station or taken to the slaughterhouse every day. Due to its location in Europe, Germany also acts as a transit country for animal transport and as an exporter of breeding animals across the European continent and beyond. In very confined spaces, the animals are driven in extreme heat or cold, usually without access to water, without any medical care, often more dead than alive, injured and frightened to the next place - hundreds, not infrequently thousands of miles away.
In the Federal Republic, Article 20a of the Basic Law gives the protection of animals as a state objective constitutional status. At EU level, the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union since 2012 stipulates that "the Union and the Member States must meet the needs of the welfare of animals as sentient beingsin full account '. In addition, Regulation EC 1/2005 regulates the protection of animals during transport and related operations, even in a cross-border context. Animal transports are part of modern factory farming, which is responsible for the deaths of 70 billion terrestrial animals worldwide each year, degrading male cattle and chicks to waste products, and shamelessly exploiting the natural cycles of female livestock. Animals are sold as cheap goods to countries where Germany and the EU have no influence on the prevailing animal welfare standards.
Due to unsustainable animal welfare violations and ineffective sanctions, I call for the immediate abolition of all animal transports. This is accompanied by the abolition of mass animal husbandry. Until this goal is achieved, at least the following requirements must be implemented as soon as possible:
Stopping transports of live animals to non-EU states - transport means enormous torture for every animal, no matter in which country. However, in the case of animal transports outside the EU, EU countries such as Germany can not control animal welfare and sanction contravention. Therefore, I call for an immediate export stop of live animals in non-EU countries.
Stronger controls and sanctions on animal transports in Germany and across the EU - Only about 1% of all animal transports in Germany are subject to scrutiny, although unannounced controls are always and everywhere possible. Statistics show that deficiencies are usually sanctioned only with recommendations or instructions, even though there are massive violations of animal welfare and transport regulations. I therefore call for a revision of Regulation (EC) No 1/2005 as regards the frequency of controls and the severity of penalties for infringements.
Uniform, maximum transport duration of a maximum of 4 hours in Germany and the entire EU - In Germany, different regulations apply with regard to transport duration and loading density for the various types of livestock. Cattle may be transported for 29 hours without rest or food. Until the transport of live animals becomes completely obsolete, I demand a uniform, maximum transport time of 4 hours for ALL species of animals.
Please insist that these conditions are a thing of the past and that animal suffering has no place in our society!
Best regards
[Your name]
