Animal sentience to be denied?

A few years ago, Thom Kofoed and I, both local residents, made a short animation film about the export of live animals. This included mention of the Lisbon Treaty and the acknowledged sentience of animals and how this was vital to their welfare. Post Brexit, this will change in the UK, but maybe it can be stopped if enough of us respond? Zelly Restorick writes, quoting from Compassion in World Farming’s latest report.
