I AM writing to inform you that as restrictions enforced during the foot and mouth epidemic have now been lifted, there has been a resumption in the export of live animals.

If readers feel as strongly, as I do, that these long journeys can involve a great deal of unnecessary suffering they can declare their opposition to this practice by contacting Compassion in World Farming on 01730 237379 or by visiting the website www.banliveexports.com and supporting the activities planned to make this opinion known.
