Australia: Attending Saleyard in Muchea

Animals’ Angels attend Muchea where just over 15000 sheep and lambs are for sale.

Density of some pens was high to the point where the sheep could not move. And an outgoing pen where sheep are held before loading had a water trough but the numbers of sheep meant those farthest away could not physically access the water.

Two dogs were observed harassing sheep. Two sheep were chased until they slipped and fell over and another was run into a metal railing gate. Luckily the dogs were muzzled.

The issues will be reported.
