WAV Comment – The lambs would be slaughtered in the UK and NOT exported live. But when they are slaughtered in the UK, are they stunned in accordance with UK and EU law, or non stunned as required by Saudi ? – big issue which will cause many to question the attitude of the government. Clarity required.
The UK government has been accused of watering down animal welfare standards after it emerged that British lambs sold to Saudi Arabia in a major new trade deal may not be stunned before slaughter.
The deal, understood to be worth £25 million over the next five years, has been criticised by MPs and animal welfare groups.
The British Veterinary Association has called on the government to clarify whether the lambs would be killed using a ‘cruel’ non-stun method, which the body condemns as causing ‘unnecessary suffering’.
Watching for the response from Government !
WAV Comment – Sheep suffer abuse the world over. Australian live export to the middle east; Museling; Shearing; Slaughter; Eid Sacrifice – sadly the UK shearing business is getting as bad as the filth that abuse sheep in Australia. Shame on them for dragging good UK welfare into the gutter. But what else should we expect ?
Check out our recent footage of Australian slaughter abuses on sheep at https://worldanimalsvoice.com/2018/08/24/it-happens-everywhere-a-dangerous-generalization/
Above – Australian sheep Mulesing.
PETA Asia’s latest eyewitness investigation found that workers threw, beat, stamped on, kicked, mutilated, and killed sheep as they sheared them in England.
As you can see in the groundbreaking video footage,
shearers violently punched these gentle animals in the face, beat them, jabbed them in the head with sharp metal clippers, and stamped and stood on their heads and necks. They threw scared sheep around and slammed their heads and bodies against hard wooden floors. The eyewitness never saw any veterinary care being given to the animals, including those with mastitis – a painful udder infection – and prolapsed uteruses.
These animals need your help.
