Animal in Transport

After a TV documentary exposed the harsh, obscene, and deadly conditions cattle endure while being exported to Indonesia on ocean-going vessels and being mistreated in their abattoirs, and the public outcry that followed,  Australia suspended cattle trade with that country.  Now, a month later, and certainly many dollars lost with Australia’s largest live cattle market, the ban has been lifted.

As reported by the BBC:

Agriculture Minister Joe Ludwig said he was satisfied that the animals would not be mistreated.

That’s it.  The end.  The 700,000 cattle transported to Indonesia- on ships- worth AU$300,000,000- per year- will no longer be mistreated.  “New guidelines” have been put in place despite Indonesian officials denying the reports of animal cruelty.  What a difference a month makes, right?

Forget Strategy, Advocate Veganism.

    Not surprising. When money’s involved, human and animal rights take the backseat. Disgusting.
