Millions of live sheep are subjected to a gruelling months-long road and sea journey from Australia to the Middle East every year. They travel in hot, poorly-lit dens with three sheep crushed into each square metre. Tens of thousands die each year from hunger, unable to recognise the concentrated pellets on the ships as food. Still more are killed or injured if they slip or fall, smothered by the other animals. Those that survive are roughly unloaded and taken to ‘fattening plants’ before being slaughtered in deplorable conditions.
