This is the fate of one gentle Aussie sheep sold into live export. Our undercover investigator found her in Kuwait, gasping in her own blood, while she tried desperately to stand up after her throat was cut inside an illegal ‘slaughter room’.
Like countless other animal victims before her, she shouldn’t have even been there. But some live export companies are deliberately breaking Australian laws — and animals like her are suffering the consequences.
The Animals Australia Investigations Unit is the only thing standing between live exporters and their ability to continue abusing laws — and animals — without scrutiny. An urgent gift today can keep investigators in the field and help bring these criminals to justice.
Animals Australia’s groundbreaking investigations in Egypt, Indonesia and other countries have awakened millions to the truth about live animal export. Our work has forced a much-needed regulatory regime and has paved the way for landmark cruelty prosecutions.
The threat of Animals Australia investigators in the field remains the single greatest motivator for uncaring live exporters to not abandon animals to extreme acts of cruelty.
But while live export continues, animals remain at risk. That’s why we are also investing in major initiatives to compel politicians to recognise live export as a ‘crime against animals’ — and end the trade once and for all.
Your kind support can help place investigators where animals need them most, and speed the day when no animal is subjected to the horror of live export.
