End abuse of animals on livestock ships, says Futuregrowth's Andrew Canter

Cattle export ship MV Galloway Express and other industrial vessels have come under fire for the apparently inhumane conditions under which animals are shipped.

The livestock carrier is expected to arrive in Mauritius after loading thousands of cattle onto the ship which left East London earlier this month.

Andrew Canter, the Chief Investment Officer at Futuregrowth, says the transportation of livestock is both inhumane and economically inefficient.

Cantor explains that there are no regulations or controls on board the ships when they are between two jurisdictions.

He says that South African government should stop exporting any livestock until there is an internationally agreed upon protocol which allows animal rights activists to monitor the ships.

They won't let anybody take video on board, that tells me something.

The issue is topical and relevant to the moral values of our society

Why are we taking perfectly healthy animals, putting them on long sea voyages, mistreating them, and subjecting them to extreme heat, underfeeding, and allowing them to die on route.

The Constitutional court has ruled on this matter about animal sentience.

I want to know that the animals I am eating are not being treated in a way that I would not myself treatment.
