The legal battle against British live calf exports rages on – and we must maintain momentum to deliver justice for calves.
As you may know, Compassion’s Judicial Review of the appalling trade in unweaned calves from Britain to the Continent is set to be heard in court in the autumn.
Thousands of compassionate people have already lobbied the Scottish Government to drop its opposition to the case. Following those emails, it has indicated it may consider reviewing its live exports policy.
But the Scottish Government is still fighting us in court – and Defra, acting on behalf of the UK Government, is backing them. Given that UK decision makers have repeatedly pledged to end live exports for fattening and slaughter, this is a bitter betrayal.
Please, help end this hypocrisy: urge the UK Government to drop its legal defence of cruel calf exports.
