Australian transporters reject live export ban ads
Two Australian public transport companies have rejected a request from vegan group PETA to place an ad calling for a ban on live exports.
Sydney Ferries and Queensland Rail both refused to accept the ad, which shows sheep packed into a ship with the caption ‘Their Commute Is a Real Killer. Ban Live-Animal Export!’.
PETA said it wanted to place the ad “to highlight the fact that even a year’s worth of the worst commutes imaginable cannot match the suffering these animals experience during just five minutes aboard these shameful death ships”.
The organisation is calling on supporters to write to their local MP demanding a total ban on live exports.
