The Transportation Horror of Live Animals.
This sections content is still in progress as results of the Government actions are still unknown. (May 2018)
Australia exports many millions of live animals every year. Cattle, sheep camels and goats are shipped long distances in distressingly filthy and unhealthy conditions which result in illness and death for many of them. They are often slaughtered in countries without adequate protections against cruelty.
Some sheep and cattle are loaded in Adelaide South Australia. Then a four day journey to Fremantle in Western Australia to finish loading. When fully loaded, 4 to 6 week sailing to the Middle East.
