Calling for a ban on live export

 Live animal exports cause terrible distress to the animals involved. Loaded into confined and poorly ventilated spaces, jolted during long hours of travel and often transferred to unsafe holding pens at ports, animals are put under immense stress and sometimes die en-route.

I would urge everyone who wants to see an end to this cruel practise to sign the petition calling for a ban-in order for the Government to make the case for a ban to the EU Ministers needs to know how deeply people care about this issue. In Britain we have a proud tradition of compassion towards animals- with the help of the public I am confident that we can make real progress in ending this iniquitous trade.
