Export of live farm animals from the UK – Compassion in World Farming Investigates

In late 2011 Compassion in World Farming initiated a series of investigations into the export of live farm animals from the UK. And, in early 2012, generous donations from Compassion supporters enabled the team to continue the campaign, trailing a lorry carrying calves from the UK, through France and into Spain – simply to be fattened for the veal trade. These young calves were loaded on a farm in the west of England and transported, over a period of almost 60 hours, to a farm in northern Spain.
