    This is not the first time Brazil has exported live cattle, so find it strange that animal protection activists have complained only now. Can understand the ‘Santistas’ complaining, as the strong stench can get pretty bad when the wind blows inland.
    Brazil started exporting live cattle in the early 2000s, and the main criticism focuses on the stress the animals endure while being transported hundreds of kilometers to the port, then confined for about 2 weeks while in transit at sea, but as these shipments are destined to mainly Islamic countries (Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan), which require that the meat be fresh, and slaughtered according to their religion, there isn’t much option.
