Animals Tortured Again

Another horrible and disgusting story concerning torture of animals has happened, this time sheep have had to suffer again.
ONLY 32 sheep out of nearly 14’600 hundred (!!) were rescued when the ship they were transported on, turned over. Only 32. The others all drowned, died a horrible death.

How sick can humanity be that it allows the transport of nearly 15’000 animals on one ship?

Those tortured animals will be on the conscience of the people who sold them, transported them and wanted to buy them or their meat. What does their GOD say to such a cruel sin?
Every few weeks a story emerges about cruel treatment of animals by men, mostly in connection with transporting them for slaughter.
And one really has to ask the question:
IS IT NECESSARY TO TRANSPORT LIVE ANIMALS AT ALL?
The definite and unambiguous answer is: NO, IT IS NOT. NOWHERE IN THE WORLD.

And to transport nearly 15’000 animals in one ship is outrageous anyway!
EACH AND EVERY ANIMAL COULD BE SLAUGHTERED (if it really has to be slaughtered) IN A DECENT WAY WHERE IT LIVES.
ONE CAN THEN TRANSPORT THE MEAT.
Whether it is sheep from Australia or from Romania as in the most recent case to the Middle East or cattle from Europe to Turkey or Kazakhstan, it is all UNNECESSARY AND CRUEL even under the best of circumstances.

The animals could be slaughtered where they were born and bred and if REALLY NECESSARY it could be done and certified as halal. Though, of course a more thoughtful way of killing animals would be better.
But to transport live animals around the whole world or part of the world is just inhumane, incredibly cruel and UNCHRISTIAN. Even under the best and most considerate of circumstances the conditions on these transports are just horrifying and cruel. No human being would like to be treated as those poor animals are.

Then: Why do people still do such a thing to God’s own creatures?
Apart from this and in the case of Romania it would provide jobs for Romanians as well if the animals were slaughtered in Romania under controlled and decent circumstances.
It is more than foolish if animals are treated in disgusting, atrocious, horrible ways because of religion. What kind of GOD would like to have his own creature treated in such a horrible way by another creature (men)??
It is an abomination that things like this can still happen in the 21 century.
Shame on everyone involved in this horrible kind of torture of animals.
