As with uranium, so with livestock

NOWHERE in my letter about animal cruelty (‘‘Don’t feed this cruel process’’ Letters 22/5) did I ever suggest that Australia should attempt to tell other countries what they can and can’t do.

But just as we refuse to sell uranium to countries that can’t guarantee it won’t be used for nuclear weapons, we also should refuse to sell live animals to countries that don’t have animal cruelty prevention laws.

I don’t care if the reasons for the cruelty are cultural, religious, or due to having no refrigeration facilities.

We have a duty of care to all sentient animals that are bred in Australia, and should never, ever send them to a cruel death overseas.
