Australian livestock exports to Egypt suspended following release of footage showing extreme animal cruelty AGAIN!!!

Australian livestock exports to Egypt have been suspended following the release of footage showing extreme animal cruelty during the slaughter process.

The video was obtained by animal welfare organisation Animals Australia, which passed it on to the Federal Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF).

The Australian Livestock Exporters’ Council has responded by putting in place a voluntary suspension of exports to Egypt.

The council’s CEO Alison Penfold has told the ABC’s AM program the acts shown in the footage are horrific.

“It shows in one facility a clumsy and callous emergency slaughter of an injured animal,” she said.

Some 3,000 cattle remain in feedlots waiting to be processed and DAFF has urged Egyptian authorities to keep them safe while they investigate.

The footage has not been made public.
