The title of ABC’s Four Corners program ‘Another bloody business…’ really said it all. For the second year running viewers were shocked and appalled by vision of horrific treatment of Australian exported animals – this time sheep – and this time in Pakistan.
Many Australians are today outraged that the ALP, Coalition and rural lobby groups continue to defend an indefensible trade where the cost of ‘mistakes’ and ‘isolated incidents’ is not determined in dollars and cents, but in mass animal cruelty and suffering.
For years, Animals Australia and RSPCA Australia have spoken about the unacceptable risks involved in live animal export. The factors outside of our control once animals leave Australian shores are numerous. ‘Pakistan’ provided another chapter in an ongoing story few Australians will be proud to recount to our grandchildren.
