Further shocking evidence has surfaced of Australian cattle being abused in an Egyptian abattoir.

PUBLISHED ON: 17 May 2013

The footage reveals conscious animals walking around with gaping throat cuts in an Egyptian abattoir that has been hailed by industry as 'state-of-the-art'.

Once more, this reinforces the cruel nature of un-stunned slaughter. Yet inconceivably, Labor, the Coalition and the live export industry have all rejected calls for mandatory stunning of animals in the live trade.

Just over a week ago, evidence provided by Animals Australia of cruelty to Australian cattle in Egypt sparked a government investigation. This latest evidence was brought to Animals Australia's attention this week and immediately provided to the Department of Agriculture.

Once again, the industry's mantra of needing to stay in a market to improve welfare has been exposed for what it is: PR spin designed to maintain producer and government support.

Sadly, farmers have again been deceived by the very industry bodies that purport to represent them. They are being told that their animals are well cared for overseas, only to consistently find out otherwise.

The sky won't fall in if live export ends. Most Australian farmers don't live export and those who do can be assisted to transition away from the trade — a move that would be better for them and better for animals.
