Nous pouvons, nous devons q' il reste quelque chose d' humain en nous, signer cette pétition pour dire ASSEZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The European Union's animal welfare legislation is regarded as among the best in the world. But exported animals are no longer protected by EU transport or slaughter welfare laws once they leave its borders, writes Olga Kikou.
Olga Kikou is european affairs manager for Compassion in World Farming (CIWF), an international NGO working on the welfare of farm animals and sustainable farming and food.
During 2014, over two million farm animals were exported live from the EU to third countries in North Africa, the Middle East and Turkey. Exports of live animals are on the increase as the farming industry is in search of new markets.
However, serious welfare problems have tarnished this trade. A recent exhibition in the European Parliament called “Live animal exports: the EU’s cruellest trade”, highlighted the suffering involved in long distance live animal transport and the inhumane slaughter that animals often face at journey’s end.
The EU has put in place a number of legislative measures aiming to protect the welfare of animals. EU animal welfare legislation is regarded among the best in the world. However, conditions in third countries are vastly different from those in the EU and exported animals are no longer protected by EU transport or slaughter welfare laws once they leave its borders. In third countries, there is often no level of protection at all and slaughter practices are often in breach of the international standards of the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) on welfare of animals at slaughter.
