Cruel Is­lamic an­i­mal slaugh­ter must stop

Balonne Beacon - - NEWS WELCOME -

PIC­TURE this: one hun­dred mil­lion sheep, cows, goats and camels hav­ing their throats sawn open while they are tightly bound and fully con­scious.

Blood is ev­ery­where.

A scene from a hor­ror movie?

No, this is what ac­tu­ally oc­curs each year dur­ing the “holy” Is­lamic “Fes­ti­val of Sac­ri­fice” and this year’s fes­ti­val has just con­cluded.

Many of the piti­ful vic­tims were Aus­tralian ex­ported an­i­mals.

For the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment to con­demn tens of thou­sands of gen­tle Aus­tralian an­i­mals to this grue­some and night­mar­ish fate is rep­re­hen­si­ble and in­de­fen­si­ble.

Hu­mans are not the only species who feel ter­ror and pain. — Jenny Mox­ham, PETA (Peo­ple for the Eth­i­cal Treat­ment of An­i­mals)
