This is not new, but still it goes on. Never mind the National Rifle Shooters Association in the US, it doesn't have much on the live cattle export industry in Australia for lobby power. Lobby power is the only way I can understand why live animal exports continue. New Zealand banned it many years ago. We (mostly) slaughter humanely in Australia, without great stress to the animals. The Middle East does not and how must the sheep suffer as they travel to the Middle East, crowded and cramped and dying in transit. What happens once they are there, is horrible to think about.
I think this link will work. https://www.change.org/p/david-littleproud-ban-live-exports-from-australia?utm_medium=email&utm_source=petition_signer_receipt&utm_campaign=triggered&j=296089&sfmc_sub=615857364&l=32_HTML&u=53444679&mid=7233052&jb=238738
