There was a small livestock vessel at North Quay in Fremantle Port this morning, so is the transport of sheep been allowed again? I had not heard that the ban had been lifted.

FIRE ON LIVE SHEEP VESSEL IN FREMANTLE

Just by chance I happened to be on the south mole when fire broke out on the live sheep vessel Wellard Ocean Drover in Fremantle Port around 8 am this morning.

It appeared to be on the bridge and crew quarters, so hopefully no sheep were harmed, but the smoke was quite intense and the fire brigade, ship’s crew and port boats all worked together to get the fire under control at around 8.30.

At least six crew members were injured and are being treated.
