(Some) Australians try to prevent annual Muhammedan blood orgy

 

In an effort to prevent unimaginable cruelty, Animals Australia is making a wide-scale appeal to Australian sheep farmers in the lead up to the “Festival of Sacrifice”.

Only a fraction of the footage obtained by Animals Australia investigators in the lead up to last year’s Festival of Sacrifice in the Middle East (Eid-al-Adha) could be aired on A Current Affair this week (22/10/08), as much of the routine animal cruelty documented by investigators was considered ‘too upsetting’ for public viewing.

Animals Australia’s investigators documented sheep routinely bound and stuffed into car boots for transport to private homes for slaughter.

The live export industry is well aware that the three day Festival of Sacrifice (this year in early December) represents the peak time for animal suffering in the Middle East. Animals Australia investigators documented traumatised Australian sheep being dragged by their horns and fleece, tied up, thrown onto trucks or shoved into car boots before being ‘sacrificed’ by having their throats cut whilst fully conscious. During this festival, animals are slaughtered in abattoirs, private homes, driveways, stairwells, or in the street.

Much of the treatment that occurs during the Eid is contrary to Islamic teachings which preach kindness to animals—but with no laws to prevent it, such treatment has come to be considered acceptable. The willingness of Australia’s live export industry to supply hundreds of thousands of sheep for this festival reinforces the local belief that this treatment of animals is acceptable.

Despite being fully aware of the scale of this animal suffering, the live export industrywill again attempt to fill ships with terrified Australian sheep destined for this fate.Many Australian sheep farmers are not aware of the increased risk of cruel treatment during this religious festival. Animals Australia believes that if fully informed, many Australian farmers would refuse to export animals to this fate.

In the coming weeks, Animals Australia will be publishing full-page open letters in rural newspapers, informing sheep farmers of the cruelty that awaits Australian animals in the Middle East, and offering indisputable video evidence obtained by Animals Australia investigators over the past two years. Click here to read the letter.

Animals Australia’s investigations have been responsible for stopping the export of sheep to Egypt for this festival. Rather than sourcing animals from other countries, Egypt responded by increasing its chilled meat imports, leading to an overall reduction of animal suffering in the country. If Aussie farmers refuse send animals to otherMiddle Eastern countries, then more animals will be spared from unimaginable cruelty.

  1. I shall use this post over at my own blog, i can’t bring myself to watch any part of the video whatsoever but this needs much coverage across the Western countries.
    It’s outrages the cruelty inflicted on these creatures thay have to rely only on our humanity to protect them.

  2. This ignorant creed called Islam treats it’s own people with contempt, so why do you think they would not not treat defencless animals any better. These people live by a criminal/mental code, many are beyond help it is a grand scale lunatic asylum with the lunatics in charge.
