What Animals Australia investigators discovered in Oman recently can only be described as a total disregard for Australian live export rules – exposing countless animals to brutal slaughter.
Here in Australia, the industry’s PR machine has been in full swing – pitching a story of reform to rally support against the Albanese government’s planned phase-out of live sheep exports.
While overseas, the sheep they are responsible for are having their throats cut on crude concrete slabs.
And once again, the only reason that anybody – including the Commonwealth regulator – is aware that live export regulations are being flagrantly breached is because of an Animals Australia investigation.
The importance of our investigations and work on behalf of the victims of live export has never been more evident.
