We observe how two gigantic empty ships: “Amira Lola” and “Freedom” arrive to the port. At the same time first trucks loaded with thousands of animals are arriving by the road to load the vessels. The animals on board of trucks are already exhausted, showing heat stress symptoms. Sadly, our team documents animals in agony that probably will die even before the journey by sea starts.
