A ship with thousands of cattle docks in Cape Town.

It gives off a bad smell.

The background is the predicament of the animals.

Cape Town - A huge livestock transporter caused people to turn up their noses in Cape Town on Monday (February 19).

The “Al Kuwait” spread a stink in the holiday metropolis.

The cause on board: 19,000 cattle exposed to “horrible conditions.”

This is how the South African animal protection organization NSPCA assessed the conditions.

She dubbed the ship a “ship of death.”

Bad smell in Cape Town coming from a ship carrying thousands of cattle

On Sunday (February 18th) the ship docked in the port of Cape Town, which is immediately adjacent to the city center.

According to the NSPCA, the organization inspected the Al Kuwait.

The cattle are said to have been on board for two and a half weeks and will have to remain there for another two weeks.

Pictures from the Cape of Good Hope SPCA show cattle completely covered in dirt.

They stand or lie “in feces and ammonia,” according to the NSPCA’s description.

Bruce Marock, a veterinary consultant for the association, said: “The smell on board is unimaginable.”

In addition, the cattle are exposed to this smell every day.

Users commented on the photos on Facebook.

“How shameful this industry is and continues to be,” someone commented.

“Poor innocent souls,” it continued.

“This is horrific... the pain and suffering these poor animals have to endure,” was another user’s reaction.

Animal transport by ship is “always associated with agony and suffering”

According to a BBC

report

, some Cape Town residents wondered how the onboard crew could live with the daily stench.

“I feel sorry for the workers on this van who are surrounded by it every day - and for the animals,” said one.

According to the city administration, the ship has been on its way to Iraq since Monday evening.

This means that the smell will slowly leave the city again.

However, some people won't soon forget the photos of the animals.

Animal protection groups have been pointing out the appalling conditions during animal transport for some time.

It's not just about transport by truck, but also about ship transport.

The German Animal Welfare Association wrote in a press release in 2023: “For the animals, transport on a ship is always associated with torment and suffering.”

When asked by

IPPEN.MEDIA

, the animal rights organization PETA also commented: “Viewing animals as goods and therefore subjecting them to these undignified transports, in which they have to endure weeks in stuffy and dirty ship bellies, shows once again that an absolute ban on such torturous transports is long overdue It went on to say: “These death trips must be prevented, but they are part of a network of suffering that animals in the agricultural industry are exposed to every day.

This network has been established over the last 50 to 70 years and some people earn a lot of money from it.” The organization is therefore committed to a vegan lifestyle.

In 2023, a missing person case of a German in Cape Town also caused a stir.

22-year-old Nick was on vacation there and disappeared without a trace.
