Update: Gracia Del Mar Cattle Tragedy

Update: Gracia Del Mar Cattle Tragedy | Factory farming - Animal Transport | Scoop.it

A final update...
We’re now able to bring you an explanation for, and the final outcome of, this tragedy. Reports we have received suggest that when the Gracia Del Mar livestock ship passed the Algerian Coast, en route from Brazil to Egypt, it passed through a snow storm and extremely cold weather. Many of the cattle could not withstand this severe weather and this led to thousands of deaths.

The ship then tried to dock in a number of places along the Red Sea and was refused for several days, both at Egyptian ports and in other nations. We understand that all live cattle have now been transferred from the Gracia Del Mar and have been taken to land, although it is not clear which country the animals finally ended up in.

Around 3,000 animals, over half of those onboard the Gracia Del Mar when it left Brazil, are thought to have died in this catastrophe. While many of the exact details of this event remain unknown, one thing is clear: the long distance transport of animals must stop.

Compassion has campaigned for many years on this issue, and this latest tragedy provides yet more evidence that long distance live transport has no place in modern farming. Our campaign goes on, and with your help, we will continue to fight to make sure these tragic disasters become a thing of the past.
