Morocco: Taking Action at Skherat Animal Market

Today, one day before the Muslim Feast of Sacrifice, the animal market in Skherat is bustling with activity. Our Moroccan team is again on-site with the animals.

To bring some relief to the animals, Ali, Habib and Boubaker try to talk to and sensitize the owners but they mostly go unheeded. At least they are able to loosen the leg shackles of some lambs on one transporter so the animals are able to stand during transport instead of lying one above the other.

Our team is also with the donkeys who have to wait at the ‘parking lot’ for ‘working animals’. They talk to the owners, insisting on them to unharness their animals from the carts. They also water them and disinfect their wounds.
