This has to be stopped! A country which I love is planning to send thousands of animals to torture and death in China and South Korea. Please help to send a message to the government of Egypt this is not acceptable.
Al Arabiya English reports:
Egypt has recently signed a trade deal to export nearly 10,000 donkeys to China, with another agreement likely soon to send dogs to Korea.
The General Organization for Veterinary Services at the Ministry of Agriculture in Egypt agreed on the deal after requests from many Chinese companies.
Dr. Ibrahim Mahroos, the organization’s director, confirmed that Egypt will send the donkeys alive to China in accordance with an Islamic ruling in Egypt’s al-Azhar.
He added that China wants the donkey's skin rather than its meat.
Egypt is also looking into requests from Korea to export dogs there, especially after several shelters have said they are at full capacity and were putting down stray dogs.
This must not happen, there must be another way to help these poor animals.
Dear government of Egypt
We ask you to reconsider the decision to export donkeys and dogs to China and Noth Korea where they will suffer cruelly. Please show your compassion and do not allow this to happen.
