CIWF Trucking hell

 

Dear Mark,

Great news on our Judicial Review of British calf exports. The Scottish Government’s outrageous request for an indefinite delay has been REJECTED!

The Court of Session has, instead, chosen to double the court time available for our case – and the hearing is now expected to take place in October.

The battle against cruelty isn’t over yet, but we’ve secured a first, big victory. A huge thank you to everyone who has backed this campaign so far. If you haven’t already done so, please:

Take action – Call on the Scottish Government to drop their defence of the appalling live export trade.

Donate – 100% of your gift will support Compassion’s work in the UK.

Spread the word to fight live exports, using ciwf.org.uk/JusticeForCalves

Thank you! Together, we will keep up the fight for #JusticeForCalves.

With best wishes,
Nick

STUCK ON A TRUCK

Every year, thousands of unweaned calves are sent from Scotland to fattening farms in Spain. These vulnerable, young ‘by products’ of the dairy industry suffer journeys that are both horrific and, we believe, illegal.

Animal transport law states that unweaned calves cannot travel for more than 8 hours – unless, after a maximum of 9 hours’ transport, they are rested, given water and, “if necessary”, fed.

In reality, the ‘rest’ usually just means the lorry stops moving for an hour. And, because milk substitute can’t in practice be provided on the trucks, calves may go as long as 23 hours without food. They must be stressed, exhausted, and desperately hungry.

Whilst they’re on British farms, these young animals must legally be fed twice a day. Yet the transporters think it’s not ‘necessary’ to feed them until they’re first unloaded in Northern France!
