When I was a child, more that once I saw a cat torture a mouse to death. It was not nice. I seem to recall I was horrified at the time, but that is the natural order of things, no matter how unpleasant the viewing may be. We humans are better than that, mostly.
Off the shore of West Australia a ship has broken down, and just relying on memory, the ship has been sitting there for ten days awaiting repair. On board is a thousand or thousands of cattle for live export to Israel and they are dying an awful death. Do you know West Australia has had some terrible bushfires? There has been a loss of a whole town of around 100 houses. It has been killer hot there and that is the temperatures that these animals have been suffering, like 40 degrees, 104F.
These poor mammals, just a little down the evolutionary scale from us, are suffering badly. Yet no matter the colour of the government, the hideous practice of live animal exports is not stopped.
Get Up and Change dot org seem to have not been effective in protest. It may well be time to flood email our Prime Minister.
My blog post won't change anything, but a consensus of opinion about live animal exports will.
