Australian protest fails to halt export of live sheep

Adrift and unwanted

David Fickling in Sydney
Friday September 26, 2003
The Guardian

A freighter carrying 28,000 live sheep left Portland early this
morning after police officers ended two days of disruptive protests
against Australia's export of live animals.
Up to 50 protesters in kayaks and dinghies tried to prevent the
al-Kuwait docking on Wednesday and chained themselves to animal pounds
yesterday in an attempt to prevent the sheep being loaded.

They said that conditions in the ships which carried 6m sheep to
mainly Middle Eastern countries last year were disgraceful. "We should
not tolerate this sort of brutal trade in this day and age," an Animal
Liberation spokesman, Ralph Hahnheuser, said.

The demonstration was prompted by the plight of 58,000 sheep which
have been stranded in the Gulf for more than a month since the Saudi
quarantine authorities refused to let them into the country.

The sheep in the MV Cormo Express were barred from the Red Sea port of
Jeddah on August 21. Saudi inspectors said 6% of them were suffering
from the viral infection scabby mouth. An Australian vet on board
reported a rate of 0.35%, and now says the disease has been wiped out.

The Australian government and the ship's Dutch owners have been trying
to persuade other countries to accept the cargo for free.

The United Arab Emirates and Pakistan have refused and other
governments in the region are understood to have informally turned
down the offer. Following negotiations with the Red Cross, the sheep
may soon be offered to Iraq.

The Cormo Express remains moored in the Gulf in temperatures which
reach the high 30s Celsius during the day. The owners, Vroon, say that
about 4,500 animals have died since the Saudi authorities rejected the
stock.

The Australian RSPCA has suggested the figure could be as high as
6,000, and has called for all the remaining sheep to be slaughtered to
prevent further suffering.

"Those poor animals could be out of their misery by now," its
president, Hugh Wirth, said. "Instead, they are still trapped on that
death ship in extreme temperatures, extreme humidity and surrounded by
a sea of their own excrement."

During a similar dispute between Australia and Saudi Arabia in 1989,
one ship took 16 weeks to find a country to take its load of live
animals.

The condition of the ship has renewed calls in Australia for a ban on
the live export trade.

The industry says it has cleaned up its act since the mid-90s, when
150,000 sheep were dying every year. Last year 74,000 sheep died in
Australian live-export ships.

Dead animals are usually dumped at sea, bringing complaints from
governments of carcasses being washed up on their beaches.

The Australian agriculture minister, Warren Truss, said new
regulations governing the trade had been brought in since last year,
and the prime minister, John Howard, faced down calls to ban the
industry.

He told ABC radio: "It is a valuable trade for this country, and while
we should always endeavour to have the most humane conditions, we
after all do breed animals for consumption."

Most of Australia's live animal exports go to the Middle East, where
Muslim custom requires halal meat slaughtered in the country of
consumption. Saudi Arabia alone takes a third of the total.

The Australian sheep oven ship may go to Iraq.

Reportedly, 4000-6000 of the sheep are already cooked and ready to eat, :-)

Just to follow Rainers twisted logic through to a natural conclusion,
that's nearly 5% of the number of Jews slaughtered during WW2 by
people with names like Rainer Wolfcastle.

No I don't hate Germans, no I don't like what the Jews are doing to
the Palestinians, no I don't agree with live sheep exports, yes I am
an Aussie.

So **** off with your twisted logic Rainer.
