Tell the Australian Government not to trade donkeys with China

The booming demand for donkey skins fuelled by an obsession with a traditional Chinese medicine named ejiao, which too many people believe helps everything from impotence to cancer, is causing a global outcry.  Not only does it have a devastating effect on donkey populations in Africa and rural communities whose livelihoods depend on them, it also causes cruelty on a level we have never seen before.

As their value escalates, donkey populations worldwide are currently being decimated, so much so that five African states have NO donkeys left, and the communities that depended on them are left without their lifeline.

This heartbreaking trade is already having devastating consequences with 1.8 million donkey skins traded for the ejiao market last year alone.  Even worse, it is predicted that 5-10 million donkeys will be killed to fuel the trade every year, that’s almost one quarter of the present donkey population worldwide.

China is now looking to Australia as a new source of donkeys. The Northern Territory government is considering cashing in by farming donkeys to sell skins to China. They even considered send donkeys live to China to be slaughtered there. This must be stopped and it is down to our Government to make the call.  We need to let him know that Australia must not join and fuel this damaging trade. The Australian government should prohibit the export of feral donkeys from Australia whether live or dead. Turning feral animals into a commercial enterprise is foolish on so many levels and every effort is needed to explain the animal welfare problems to Chinese consumers and stop the demand.

TAKE ACTION and tell Acting Minister for Agriculture Malcolm Turnbull and Assistant Minister Luke Hartsuyker to prohibit the export of donkeys for traditional medicine. Whether they are feral or farmed, donkeys must not be sentenced to a cruel and horrific death.

Barnaby doesnt give a flying you know what about animals. LIve exports of cattle, sheep to eastern countries with horrendous welfare issues, not to mention long sea journeys. He backs the farmers and they’re all in it together!!

They are disconnected and void of any conscience. They perpetrate vile abuse but regard themselves as good christian folk….INSANITY!

So true Barnaby Joyce doesnt give a shit, he signs off on barbaric torturous live export, sending beautiful Greynou D’s over to China to race in horrific torturous barbaric conditions and to then me murdered by being skinned and burnt alive, an he signs off on all the evil, cruel, sadistic barbaric torturous, viruses for the bunnies, but it not only murders the wild bunnies, but our gorgeous loved pet bunnies. He has been proven evil for all of the cruelty to poor innocent defenceless beautiful animals that he has condoned and signed off on, now he is wanting to import poor innocent sweet defenceless beautiful Donkeys to be skinned alive and tortured and murdered in theost horrific way, this man does nor care about any living creature.

Isnt there enough shocking cruelty inflicted on the animals Mr Joyce.. NO TO TRADING DONKEYS TO CHINA… THE BRUTALITY HAS TO STOP… THE WHOLE BUSINESS IS SICKENING… PLRWSE.
FIND A KIND HEART….ANIMAL.ABUSE IS NOT OK..NEVER OK IN ANY FORM OR CIRCUMSTANCE…. PLEASE… DO NOT BE THE CAUSE OF ANIMAL DUFFERING FEAR PAIN TORTURE AND TERRIBLE DEATHS…

This is 1 farmer who rejects live exports. I stick to the fibre side of things.
I am with Animals Australia I donate, am a member of & sign every petition going against live export. I am in a minority I give you that.
I wish barnaby joyce (yes small letters for a small man) would open his eyes & his heart to the absolute horror of live export.
Don’t worry the farmers in my area know EXACTLY where I stand on this issue.

Lorraine

Dearest Barnaby

yours sincerely

“Humanity’s true moral test, its fundamental test, consists of its attitude towards those who are at its mercy: animals. And in this respect humankind has suffered a fundamental debacle, a debacle so fundamental that all others stem from it.”

― Milan Kundera

Do you know what they do to donkeys in China?? They strip their skin off and often they are still alive. How in God’s name could any one be a willing participant in this kind of barbaric cruelty. For what? So they can continue with their archaic so called medicine. By willingly sending donkeys to that greedy country, you are an active participant.

Margaret… l also know this to be true.. it is heartbreaking… does not matter what species… they have no respect or care for the animals…. CRUELTY BEYOND BELIEF… HOW CAN BARNABY JOYCE AND GINA RHINEHART AND ALL THOSE OTHERS WHO SEND THEIR ANIMALS FOR LIVE EXPORT DO IT.. WICKED INSANE CRUELTY

Neither are cows or sheep or lambs or pigs or chickens or turkeys or deer or ducks or pigeons or goats or fish or obsters or crabs or prawns or any other terrestrial or marine animals!

We have to stop this torturous trade. To treat another living creature in such a brutally cruel way in the name of greed is an indication of the devolving of the human race, and we as Australians must not only refuse to participate in such a heartless and cruel practice, but must stand up and protect these helpless animals from such barbaric abuse and torture. To be complicate in such an ugly practice positions us as inhumane torturers, and this is not the sort of Australia that I want to be identified with. Show some humanity, responsibility, heart and spirit and Stop this horrid practice now.

What the hell is the matter with u!!!! STOP ALL LIVE EXPORTS!!!! DO NOT SEND DONKEYS TO CHINA!!!!! HOW DARE U HAVE SUCH LITTLE REGARD FOR ANIMAL WELFARE !!!!! SEND YOURSELF THERE AND SEE HOW U LIKE THE TREATMENT OF NO ANIMAL WELFARE LAWS!!!

Incredibly the morons on this morning’s Today show on 9 were laughing at donkeys and saying how stupid they are. The fluff that comes out of this show is embarrassing. Why don’t you educate yourselves on some real issues like Donkeys being sent to China to be skinned alive for gelatin – why don’t you tell the public that? You fools. This is no laughing matter. Ignorance and the lack of exposure by our media is the reason this trade will be allowed to go on. PS: Barnaby only cares about his pockets.

Barnaby Joyce, you have to step up, you are orchestrating the gruesome deaths of millions of Australian animals abroad, and now Donkeys? You are a disgrace to the Australian population. Please act urgently.

Donkey’s were used for many, many, years working their butts off to bring COAL up from the MINES, why are we doing this to them Barnaby F—————–Joyce knows this It must not happen. to these persecuted ANIMALS They have saved many lives during rescues and endured much cruelty in there lives. LEAVE THEM ALONE JOYCE !!!!!!

If there is a humane bone in your body please study what these countries do to animals before you ship them out. Their is no humanity in the way they treat animals. The pain and suffeting they inflict is barbaric to say the least. No animal deserves to endure horrific pain and suffering on the name of GREED or any other reason for that matter.

Barnaby Joyce already has the blood of millions on his hands – to think he even considers this appalling thing, export of donkeys, is beyond words really. This government is financially hopeless and it will exploit any animal to hide its inability to balance Australia’s books with integrity and decency. Live export is evil and Australia’s shame and the public guilt is unbearable.

Good grief !!! If is istn’t torturing bears for their bile,dogs and cats for their meat.tigers,rhino horn,rabbits etc etc etc .Is their any animal they don’t torture?Oh yes the Panda Bear always cute pictures of them- big money spinner.Whats wrong with these people!!?

Barnaby Joyce, If you dont know what they do to animals in China you need to research this, dog meat trade, live export is just some of the horrific crimes they commit against animals, please do not sent these innocent creatures to get dealt the same fate.

Barnaby Joyce, it’s about time you stopped looking at animals as a money making glorification for yourself, it’s a disgrace that anything should be used and abused in such a way. It will stop one day, and that day can’t come soon enough!

Shame on Barnaby Jones, i don’t know how he can sleep at night.he has no heart. No one should tolerate the terrible cruelty of live exports

China is one of the least humane countries when it comes to killing of animals for food./
Personally, as someone who breeds cattle, I am disgusted at the state of animal welfare, on so many counts.
Live export is really not necessary. If these animals are to be used for meat then please allow for chilled carcase export.
And the other thing we could be doing is controlling breeding of many domestic and feral animals.

I have already sent him numerous emails on this issue including the MP Michael Gunner in NT who is part of the problem with no answer, so then I sent an email to the Prime Minister regarding an Independent Office of Animal Welfare and was informed that each state looks after its own animal welfare. Joyce has already proven he doesn’t care about our livestock exports in the past and he does not care about this issue either. In fact, he doesn’t care about animals at all. Everyone should contact Michael Gunner MP for the Northern Territory as he is the one colluding with Joyce regarding the donkey farming in NT.

What is the matter with this world! They want to keep he liked everything and its use it to make profit. They don’t hear if it’s cruel to the animal! And this should not be allowed!

THIS IS A CRUEL WAY TO TREAT ANIMALS AND MUST BE STOPPED. HOW CAN YOU SLEEP KNOWING YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS BARBARIC TREATMENT BY ALLOWING COUNTRIES LIKE CHINA TO KILL IN SUCH INHUMANE WAYS. NO TO LIVE EXPORT……TO ASIA………………SHOW SOME BACKBONE BARNABY…..

Barnaby Joyce cannot and will not see anything past profit and power. I have no respect for this man. I would like him to have the courage to watch the result of his actions – from the loading ports of Australia to the final destination of these unfortunate animals. He simply would not have the stomach for the outcome.

It seems that there is no end to the need to make money from animals. The cruelty involved is horrendous. Bad enough that it goes on in these barbaric places. Can’t believe Australia is prepared to be contributing to the practice. Obviously a lot of people only see dollar signs.

To exploit donkeys for financial gain should give rise to serious debate, challenge and question. The journey alone will rob them of their physical, mental and emotional health and then they will be tortured and finally slaughtered in the most appalling and abhorrent manner. Politicians must stop acting against the public’s wishes. DO NOT commit any more animals to LiveExport! it is barbaric, inhumane, senseless and unforgiveable.

NO WAY…don’t you dare…what are you an idiot…Stop the cruelty before it starts…listen to the people !!! NO NO NO…

We live in Australia and don’t condone this barbaric bullshit. Humanity seems to be lacking compassion toward animals of any form in the world these days.
Cruel and barbaric is this trade of animals be live export or not. Cruel and sadistic, and YOU must make this stop! What’s wrong with people????

So sick of people & their greed!!! Try thinking of someone other than yourselves for once, you selfish scumbags!!!
*humanity: the blight of the planet:(

This needless killing of innocent animals has to stop. These poor gentle donkey’s deserve better! Animals are here with us, not for us! Humans have a lot to answer for!

HORRIFIC! OUR SPECIES CREATES HELL ON EARTH FOR EVERY OTHER ANIMAL ON THE PLANET. SOMETHING IS EVIL AND WRONG WITH HUMANS AND THEY MUST BE STOPPED NOW .

I am a Shooter that controls Vermin, whilst Donkeys can be seen as a pest like Wild Brumby’s i could not bring myself to shoot one of either of these beautiful animals, i do not agree with any export of live product from our country, Asian countries do not have humane ways of slaughtering animals as recently seen on current affair & news programs. I’m afraid i have lost all faith in the major political party’s, the political spin goes on and on, they look after themselves first and are suppose to be a Govt for the people by the people, think they have lost the plot on listening to us.

Barnaby Joyce and Gina rhinehart how can you support this cruel practice ,put your self in these animals places , you would not , because you dont care about animal suffering , would you do it to your family , no so why send these animals to be skinned alive , just because they can’t talk does not mean they can’t express their pain except for crys of pain ,stop live export in the name of your hunger for money and greed ,don’t you have enough of it already , be human for once and be kind if you have it in you , go on one of these live export trips with these poor animals from start to finish and be with them while they are crudely skinned alive and slaughtered , I dare you , if you can’t then you are cowards and all you care about is money , and votes and you will never get my respect ,give a damm and be a good human , set examples against animal cruelty for Australia

These people should be ashamed of themself. How dare they !!!! Sorry China, but enough is enough…Australia doesn’t support animal cruelty, how about trying something natural instead of ruining the life of our animals.. And to our politicians, stop being greedy!!!!!
