They may have lied? How surprised must I be? The company behind the shocking footage showing Australian sheep being boiled alive on a live export ship to the Middle East has had its licence to export suspended, after the regulator discovered new historical breaches of animal welfare conditions. Sources said investigators were closely looking at the company's documents and statements on past shipments to check the accuracy of the number of sheep reported to have been onboard. The decision comes just days after another major live export company, LSS, pulled out of the summer trade to the Middle East.

Australians may think of themselves as animal lovers, yet our laws allow many animals to suffer a lifetime of cruelty in the name of profit. Here, millions of farmed animals such as pigs or chickens are still confined in restrictive cages that prevent them from moving, caring for their young, or acting out their innate instincts. They are forced to endure painful procedures such as de-beaking and castration. Even companion animals like dogs are farmed en masse in cruel puppy farms and backyard breeding facilities to supply cheap puppies to pet shops and through classifieds. Dogs are kept in filthy conditions, bred continuously and then discarded. Australia is the largest exporter of animals for slaughter; it sends 4 million live sheep to the Middle East every year. There is no question that this practice is cruel.

More than 2. The live export of Australian animals — be that cattle, sheep, goats, dairy cows, buffalo, and even alpacas — is a lucrative and decades-old industry.

MANY farmers around Western Australia are in a state of doubt with the current situation and unstable nature of the live sheep trade. Western Australia is unique — 85 per cent of Australian sheep that are live exported are from WA. A ban on the trade will be detrimental to our growers at farm level and will have a knock-on effect to other industries that support the trade. Shearers, feedlots, backgrounding facilities and transport and haulage companies — many of which are family owned and operated — will feel the pinch as much as any farmer. All of these service providers and many other businesses make up the communities will be left to deal with economic damage done to those who rely on income from sheep producers and the wider farming community. Global markets depend on WA for food security and we have been providing a steady sheep and cattle supply chain to our international markets for more than 60 years.
