Awassi Express

 

The Awassi Express is back at berth at North Quay in Fremantle Port and ready to be loaded with thousands of sheep again, after she made national headlines for the animal cruelty on board the ship, that was leaked by a whistleblower.

I believe that the photos and videos we are confronted with now and then are just the tip of the iceberg and that this happens far more often than the public is aware.

We also need to acknowledge that different cultures have different standards of animal care and if Australians don’t like the conditions the sheep and cattle face when being transported to the Middle East and elsewhere we need to stop the live trade from our country.

We have heard too often that conditions will improve and that animal cruelty will never happen again, until it happened again.

Stop Press: Latest news on Friday morning is that the ship will sail out empty from Fremantle but might take cattle on board in Broome, according to media reports.

LIVE SHEEP SHIP BLOCKED FROM LEAVING FREMANTLE

Awassi hero shot

 

The Australian Maritime Safety Authority(AMSA) last night blocked the departure from Fremantle Port of the live sheep carrier Awassi Express after serious concerns were raised on the 60 Minutes TV program about more than 2,000 sheep dying from heat exhaustion on a previous trip of the vessel.

The operators have been forced to reduce the number of sheep by 17.5 per cent to only 57,000 and improve the airflow for the animals. They will also be required to have a government appointed observer on board.

Fremantle federal MP Josh Wilson said that the live export industry is fundamentally rotten and that we have been lied to for 15 years.
