      No one seemed to notice the crumpled, filthy body lying in the dirt in the middle of the feedlot...
      ...the little sheep had fallen over, exhausted, injured, and starving after a 30-day journey in atrocious conditions with little food or water. He lay there for hours, the only sign of life his erratic breathing and occasional blinking. Finally a worker came over to him and carelessly picked him up, throwing his withered body onto the back of the truck bound for the market.  Mercifully, the little sheep died before he could be slaughtered alive.  READ MORE >>

      The above description is an actual account of what investigators saw during undercover investigations conducted by WSPA and the Handle with Care Coalition of the long distance transport of sheep from Australia to the Middle East, a grueling 30-day journey over thousands of miles. 
      sheep ldt video button v2 It's difficult to understand how anyone could treat an animal like this - as little more than an object to be crammed, kicked, starved, and left to die. But sadly, this is the case for millions of farm animals who are transported over long distances every year. 
      They are crowded into filthy containers aboard boats and trucks where they receive little or no food or water and are forced to stand in their own waste. 
      Along the way to their final destination, thousands die from illness, infections, starvation, or are smothered to death in the crowded conditions.
      Those who survive the grueling journey are roughly unloaded into feedlots. Many, like the little sheep pictured above, are often too weak to stand and collapse from exhaustion, while the rest are sent to slaughter.
      No Animal Deserves to be Treated Like This -
      Sadly, it's too late to help this sheep and millions more like him who have already been victims of this horrific and unnecessary trade. But it's not too late to stop this cruelty from happening to other animals around the world. Already pressure from the campaign has resulted in an 11% drop in the number of pigs transported to Hawaii from the US mainland, saving almost 2,000 animals from a horrific journey.
      Your gift will go a long way in helping us end the brutal, unnecessary long distance transport of animals and other forms of horrendous cruelty to animals across the globe. Find out more and watch our undercover video, then make your gift to help. 
      Thank you for your compassion, your commitment and your generosity. Together we can do more good for more animals.
      Warm Regards,
