Pets travel first class and prove people couldn’t be more speciesist https://t.co/pu2q1HZbL1
The “safe and humane” transport of animals around the world that they’re promoting seems laughable when the majority of animals are left out of the picture. Not to mention the animals that will pass through this facility as a pit stop on the way to further exploitation. It’s doesn’t matter how ‘luxurious’ we deem that pit stop. There’s mention of racehorses, show horses, and polo ponies, and the development of a ‘Livestock Export Centre,’ all just a reminder that this is about profitability and not just your pets comfort. They’re hoping people fall for the idea that “safe and humane” travel conditions means they can continue using animals as they please. No doubt participation from animal industries will garner more profit than the $125 they’ll charge people to board their pets.
