Export & Animal Exports
Every year, millions of animals face the terrifying and dreadful prospect of being transported hundreds or thousands of miles in awful conditions
A number of animal charities are involved in campaigns to stop live animal export over such distances such as Stop the Trucks
Each year at least 1 billion poultry and 37 million live cattle, pigs, sheep, goats and equines are transported over long distances within the EU and to third countries.
Stop the Trucks calls for transport of meat instead on transport of live animals. It demands that the remaining live animal transportation must be limited to 8 hours for mammals and 4 hours for poultry. Take action and sign now

One thing we can all do is to eat more vegetarian food, so banishing the need for cattle, horses and sheep to be transported at all.
