Campaign calls for end to exporting for slaughter

Tue, 16 Aug 2011


An online petition is calling for a ban on exporting animals from the Island for slaughter.

The campaign says transporting livestock off the Island is inhumane.

Last year, over 5500 sheep and nearly 4000 lambs were exported.

Campaigner Janet Lees has heard stories of animals being kept in trucks for up to 12 hours, and says this is inexcusable when there's an abattoir on the Island. [play clip]
