What if a judge handed down a verdict without viewing all the evidence?

What if a judge handed down a verdict without viewing all the evidence?

Right now, many politicians are doing just that — deciding the fate of millions of animals while turning a blind eye to the cruelty that may await them in the live export trade. We urgently need your help to get this new evidence in their hands.

Live export is once again making headlines across the country for all the wrong reasons… We have uncovered harrowing footage — posted on YouTube — showing Australian animals being tortured and killed during the Festival of Sacrifice in the Gaza Strip. When we alerted media, the live export industry swung back into damage control.

As an investigator, I’ve witnessed more cruelty than I care to admit — but ‘Gaza’ is the worst I have ever seen. Dozens of Australian bulls were terrorised and traumatised. One poor animal bellowed in pain as they stabbed a knife into his eye to pin him down; another was ‘knee capped’ three times with an assault rifle. Other stories are too distressing to even describe.

You do not need to watch this footage. In fact, I’d strongly recommend you don’t. But every federal politician who supports live export or who simply repeats the party line needs to see what these animals endured — because this evidence is so damning and because they have the power to help stop this shocking abuse.

Many politicians have supported live export on the condition that animals are treated ‘humanely’. But how can they determine this without first viewing the evidence? With your help we’ll make sure they watch it.

This is not like any other action. In fact, this may be the most important action you take for animals this year.

We’ve gone to extra lengths to prepare a special package for politicians. And we’ve made it easy for you to send this onto your MP without needing to view any of it yourself. Help us ensure no federal MP can support live export without bearing witness to the suffering of its victims. Please help us get justice for animals who deserved better.

    Could it possibly be that Judges are the problem in this country in its war on CRIME?

      Possibly! I read an interesting article yesterday where a judge actually sentenced a guy to time in prison for animal cruelty – a very good thing! But the defense appealed, saying the judge was too opinionated (something like that). A NEW judge was actually assigned and will now determine the guy’s fate and will likely set him free with NO jail time! You can’t win even when you win. 😦 Thanks, Gator Woman.

        Speaking for Florida, the criminals here walk an outrageous percentage of the time. Then they are right back on the streets committing even more crimes. The judges here are the root of this I believe!

          I hate to admit it, but it’s probably like that all over; every day there is some story about a criminal committing even more crimes. Sadly, animals are the most tortured and killed and nothing happens. 😦 Thanks for all you do.

            How is this for a creepy statistic?
            Florida is number one in the US for violent crimes against women, children and animals.
