Transporting sheep vast distances to be slaughtered in the Middle East is cruel.
There is no getting around it. The journeys are gruelling and sheep routinely die in terrible circumstances.
Footage aired on 60 Minutes Sunday 8th April shows this all too distressingly.
WA Minister for Agriculture Alannah MacTiernan is acting to improve animal welfare in WA, the state where most of the sheep are exported from. Federal Agriculture Minister David Littleproud has described the conditions on board the ship as ‘bullshit’ and stood up for the brave whistle blower who brought it to light.
Right now, these two ministers are the best hope for the millions of sheep that suffer live export cruelty. Please take a minute to let them know that if they take action they will have your support.
