To ALL: Those tortured animals are not and never can become HALAL and, if their contaminated meat is roasted over stolen and illegally imported charcoal from Somalia - that's a sure ticket to hell for all those, who feast on it.

Help End the Hideously Cruel Australian Live Export Industry

Horrific scenes of dying animals on board - WATCH VIDEOS below

Every year, millions of Australian sheep are crammed onto multilevel, open-decked ships bound for ports in the Middle East - especially Saudi Arabia - and North Africa. When they arrive, they are dragged to shore as if they were sacks of coal, and their throats are cut while they are still conscious.

Every day that live export continues is another day of suffering for animals. It's time for Australian politicians to end the cruelty of this trade. For animals, a step onto a live export ship can lead to a most cruel and brutal fate. Investigations by Animals Australia over the past decade have repeatedly exposed systemic cruelty to Australian animals exported live. Millions of cattle, sheep and goats have endured long sea journeys, often only to face shocking abuse and fully conscious slaughter in countries with no effective animal welfare laws in place.

PETA US and Animals Australia released the results of a joint undercover investigation that exposed unspeakable cruelty in the live-export trade. The horrors revealed in the investigation show the real-life experience of thousands upon thousands of sheep.

This footage exposes an industry acting unlawfully. It reveals what millions of gentle animals have endured for decades, in secret.

[WARNING: Distressing footage] BREAKING: world-first footage taken by a brave whistleblower has exposed the extreme, routine suffering of sheep on Australia's live sheep export ships — rendering the trade effectively illegal.

No animal should ever suffer the hellish conditions of the live-export trade or the terror of cruel slaughter methods.

Please help us protect animals including cattle, sheep and goats from the cruelty of live export by signing this petition to the Prime Minister of Australia, Scott Morrison.

For 60 years, cruelty to animals on live export ships has been kept secret.

There’s no ‘nice’ way to send animals halfway around the world to be killed for meat.

A live sheep isn’t ‘cargo’. S/he breathes. S/he thinks. S/he suffers

These simple facts may be lost on wealthy live export companies. But it wasn’t lost on one concerned crew member who was horrified by the suffering he witnessed on live export voyages...

Take Action

Ask the Australian High Commissioner, The Hon George Brandis QC, to put an end to this horrific practice today:



More than 100,000 litres of urine and faeces accumulates on a typical live export ship every day sheep are on board. The ship won’t be ‘washed out’ until after they’ve disembarked.

As the northern summer kicks in, on-board conditions can turn catastrophic.

When temperatures soar — and predictably they do —  weeks of untreated waste buildup ‘melts’ into a thick, deadly soup. Any animal needing to lie down to rest risks being buried in excrement.

Corrosive ammonia chokes the air and burns the eyes and throats of those on board. Distressed animals rapidly overheat. Their hearts race as they gasp for oxygen. Trapped in what is essentially a ‘giant oven’, extremely heat stressed animals collapse before  literally being cooked alive. Other heat stressed sheep may die slowly over the following days. Those who survive a ‘heat event’ will continue to suffer in this putrid bog, now littered with the decaying bodies of their dead companions.

Even before they arrive on the ship the sheep are subjected to an endless torture:

The meat of these animals is - due to the persistent distress and the chemical, biological and physiological alterations coming along with it - rendered unfit for human consumtion.
