Time to ban live animal exports

 

Sir, – Following the proposed ban on the export of live animals for fattening and slaughter in the UK, is it not time for us to implement the same ban here?

The unimaginable suffering of these animals in transit and on arrival in countries that may not have animal welfare as a priority should be addressed by our Government without undue delay. – Yours, etc,

CLAIRE REDMOND,

Goatstown,

Dublin 14.
