Sheep sent to Middle East despite Australian laws

What sort of a monster would torture 50,000 gentle and inoffensive animals? Sadly, our Federal Government would.

This week our Federal Government rejected Animals Australia’s demand to uphold our laws – put in place specifically to protect animals – and allowed 50,000 Australian sheep to set sail for the Middle East in the height of the scorching Middle Eastern summer.

Footage from previous summer voyages showed animals suffering unimaginably and literally melting to death, which is why the law was introduced.

Mahatma Gandhi famously said,” The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”

Tragically, for the animals, our nation has failed the test miserably.
