EU sends sick cattle to Libya

Report ofAnimal Welfare Foundation”

🚨 Yesterday evening (February 13th) we received the news that sick cattle from the EU have been detained on board the animal transport ship Elbeik for almost two months.

Elbeik in summer 2020, Tarragona animal export port (Spain).

 

Bluetongue has been detected in some animals. The animals were therefore not allowed to be unloaded in the destination country Libya.

Since then, the ship has stopped in several countries and unloaded some of the 1,800 cattle originally loaded.

But there are still animals on board. The captain and crew are desperate.

They no longer have enough food and water for the remaining animals.
Last night our teams informed the responsible EU and port authorities.
We are working flat out to free the cattle.

Our teams document the loading of European animals onto the transport ship Elbeik.

Conditions on the Elbeik are no exception.

Animals from the EU suspected of having the bluetongue virus were also detained on the ship Karim Allah in December.

Both cases clearly show that the legally required emergency plans do not work for live animal exports by ship.

The animals bear the costs. That is why we call on the EU Commission to stop torture transports immediately!

And I mean… Report from Libya:

London, 26 January 2021:

The ship, Elbeik, carrying unhealthy livestock was ejected out of Tripoli port yesterday under armed patrol, Tripoli’s Interior Ministry reported yesterday.

This came after Libya’s National Centre for Animal Health (NCAH) had announced Saturday (23 January) that it had refused to approve the entry of two shipments totaling 2,671 cattle. The livestock shipments had arrived at Tripoli port earlier in January.

The violating shipments of cattle were on board the ship “Karim Allah” carrying 895 calves, and Elbeik carrying 1,776 calves.

The NCAH, part of the Tripoli Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Marine Wealth, had said that the reason for the rejection is the shipment’s violation of the general health and veterinary conditions.

It had added that it subjects all shipments of live animals imported from abroad to control, from the time they leave the country of origin until they reach the Libyan ports.

It had stressed that only healthy animals and their products are allowed to be tested to see their conformity.

Yesterday, the Interior Ministry said the Elbeik left Tripoli port with its full shipment to Spain, where the patrols of the General Administration of Coastal Security and the patrols of the Coast Guard were coordinated with the Tripoli Maritime Port Security Directorate to accompany the ship until it had left the Libyan territorial waters.

It stressed they were ready to ‘‘take the necessary actions in case of violation’’.

No mention was made of the “Karim Allah” carrying the rejected 895 calves.

The biggest offense from the beginning was to transport sick animals in order to earn money with them.

We don’t know which EU country the animals come from, we only know from the Lebanese press that they are loaded in a port in Spain.
Someone there confirmed that the animals are healthy and fit for transport, even though they were not.
Who wants to do his job right and controls 2,600 cattle?

And that’s what happens in the EU!
In the EU, whose countries call themselves civilized.
With the best animal transport protection law in the world.
Where almost no one adheres to this law.

So we don’t need an EU.
It’s a corrupt, animal-hostile corporation, nothing more.

My best regards to all, Venus

At the slaughterhouse

Numerous investigations in Australian slaughterhouses have documented the terror dairy calves face prior to and during the slaughter process. It’s the final cruelty for these babies who have been born – and killed – for one reason; to keep their mothers producing milk for humans.

South Korea: Message Back from ‘Korean Dogs’ in California re ‘Bounce Back’ Issues. Try the e People Petitions First – This Will Get To Government. Read On …..

A few days ago in one post re the Korean (Meat) Dogs campaign, I said that we had tried to send e mails as per the website; but many had been returned by the administrator within a few minutes.

South Korea: 12/02/21 – Latest Newsletter; but PLEASE READ ALL the info below. Act as Detailed Please. – World Animals Voice

I said then that I would be contacting Korean Dogs in California to sound them out about this.  So I did.  Within a day I had a very nice message back from our animals friends at Korean Dogs in California.  Giny sent the following info, which I am repeating in full as I hope it will help you with your actions.

As Giny says – The e-People petition is the most effective of all the actions you can take so please try doing that today. This will never bounce back and you will ALWAYS get a response from the Korean government. www.e-People.go.kr

So I suggest that (initially), the E People petition route is probably the best way to start.

Thanks to Giny for her very rapid response to my questions; I informed her that we will continue to support their wrk and campaigning until the Korean meat dog issue is a thing of the past.

Regards Mark


Call for Action! – Stop the Dog and Cat Consumption in S. Korea! (koreandogs.org)

——————————————————————————————————-

Here is the response from Giny:

Dear Mark,

Thank you for caring about the animals in the South Korean dog and cat meat industry and contacting us.

And thank you for taking action!

Please refer to our FAQ regarding this issue: https://koreandogs.org/faq-koreandogs-org/

Q: I have sent emails to addresses given on your web-pages, but many of them ‘bounce’ or have some other message saying they cannot be delivered. Why is this?


A: There could be several reasons why your emails are returned or not delivered. Your returned email will indicate the reason for the returned email such as “Message blocked”, “The receiver denied your mail.” One suggestion that we would like to make is that you separate your personal email with the petition mailing email account. You can also set up multiple email accounts on gmail for petition email sending.


In addition, the sources from where we have collected these email addresses could be out of date, or incorrect; or may have changed since we collected this information and listed it on our website. We do try our best to keep up-to-date information, but, as you can appreciate, it is not always possible to reflect these changes.


The e-People petition is the most effective of all the actions you can take so please try doing that today. This will never bounce back and you will ALWAYS get a response from the Korean government. www.e-People.go.kr

We also urge everyone to pass on your message by sending postal letters, and making telephone calls. Telephoning is particularly effective as the message cannot be so easily ‘ignored’.

Thank you!

Giny
