Fmr Miss World Tries to Stop Animal Exports to Libya

Former Miss World Rosanna Davison (pictured) has joined around 10,000 people in an appeal to the Irish Government to end the export of live animals to Libya.

Davison, daughter of singer Chris de Burgh, told the Irish Independent that as an animal lover and strict vegan, she is "strongly opposed to the resumption of live animal exports from Ireland to the Middle East, and to a country which the Irish Department of Foreign Affairs has advised Irish people not to travel to".

She mentioned the long journey the animals face and their 'extreme suffering' as a result of Halal 'slaughter methods'.

Ireland resumed the export of live cattle to Libya in February after a break of 17 years.

    Why not ban all exports to countries that use halal methods of killing.
    Then we can all go out of business and live in our own countries and just subsist or starve on what we grow.

    I don't think that anyone will take miss Davidson seriously. After all this
    Comes from someone who's only claim to fame is slipping into a bathing
    Suit and yes walking down a cat walk.
    I wonder if she has ever done a hard days work in her life. Oh and yes
    Being the dAughter of an international rock star.
