Dear donors and friends,

Everyone is talking about a pandemic now because us humans feel threatened by it. Sadly we humans can die from this current virus, Covid 19. Previously society rarely talked about viruses, because most humans fortunately didn’t feel directly life-threatened by one.

But every year viruses break out among our very own farm animals in multiple places around the world, largely due to intensive housing conditions and live transport all over the world. Mad Cow Disease, Foot and Mouth Disease, African Swine Fever, Pig Flue, Avian Flue, Q-Fever…

Little is shown in the media about what these animals face when viruses break out. What do we do with our animals when they get sick?

The forgotten ones during virus outbreaks

Due to recent corona travel limitations, Eyes on Animals teams were stuck working largely from home for 2 months. We used this time to create a new film and webpage to raise awareness about this.
Of course we will continue to work on the ground, where the animals are, to alleviate as much as possible some of their suffering during transport and slaughter.

As we speak our inspector Asalet is giving training courses on stunning in slaughterhouses in eastern Turkey and I am typing this from the car; we are on the roads in the Netherlands to check on heat-stress of transported animals.

Your support keeps us going. THANK YOU!
