Over the past month, tens of thousands of sick sheep have suffered horrifically aboard two Australian live-export ships headed for the Middle East. Amid concerns about the disease scabby mouth, 22,000 of these sheep were turned away by Bahrain and forced to endure an additional 14 days at sea. Your voice is needed!

Six weeks after being packed into a live export ship and sent halfway around the world, this is the miserable end for the thousands of Australian sheep caught up in the Ocean Drover disaster. Rejected by Bahrain and 'fast-tracked' to Pakistan, this photo taken in Karachi on the weekend shows they are now knee-deep in mud in hot and humid weather, at a clearly unsuitable holding facility. Pakistan has declared them diseased, and ordered them culled rather than sold for slaughter. After everything these animals have been put through, what price tag can we put on their suffering?
=======================================
At least 10,000 Australian sheep sent to Pakistan have been slaughtered, with Pakistani newspapers reporting a video which they say shows some of the animals being clubbed to death and others buried alive.

      The live export trade to certain countries needs to be looked into. All Islamic countries slaughter animals under the dubious religious rites of Halal.

      Halal slaughtering is cruel,inhumane and barbaric.

      The poor beasts have their throats cut,then they bleed to death without being stunned first.

      Banning to all Islamic countries should be prioritized. It's disgusting and shouldn't be allowed to carry on.

      Joel Fitzgibbon is the new Minister for Agriculture. You need to change the letter to make it relevant.
