Live animal exports – a look at the journey logs

I’ve been looking into live animal exports for a while. Not many people know that it still goes on, and many people are still campaigning to see it stop for good.

After a long time, I’ve managed to get hold of some of the journey logs for live animal exports, known as WIT7 forms, from the Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA).

Campaign groups tell me there’s a large difference between transportation for slaughter, and transportation for breeding, so I’m not sure how useful these are.

However, there are some controversial transporters in the mix, including this journey log for the MV Joline from Ramsgate.

As and when I get some free time I’m going to try to upload the rest of the documents here, so hopefully the list below will increase.

By all means take a look, and let me know if you see anything interesting. You can share them too, as long as you credit me.

Hopefully there will be some other posts on the topic soon.
