Unpublished and shocking images inside the ships transporting live animals from Portugal to Israel

5 October 2020

The images were collected inside the ships that regularly transport cattle and sheep from Portugal to Israel.

The videos reveal the shocking reality of live export by showing animals huddled together, without space, injured and sick. The videos also show serious and repeated violations of national and international legislation.

The images are starting to be released within the framework of the newly created European Parliament’s commission of inquiry, which will investigate violations of European legislation that regulates the transport of live animals. Additional images will be delivered to the European Commission, the media and the national authorities that requested them.

These images are unpublished and were captured on several trips throughout 2019. The videos show the animals’ ear tags, confirming their Portuguese origin. The responsibility of the Portuguese State for compliance with the applicable legislation only ends at the moment of disembarkation, no inspection is foreseen on board.
