Australia: Visiting Naracoorte Saleyard

Animals’ Angels visits the saleyard in Naracoorte. There are for sale approximately 909 cattle under cover and 4640 sheep (3673 lambs and 967 sheep) in open pens.

We observe a serious condition affecting the eye of two cattle and two non-weight bearing sheep in sale pens. The matter of the steer who is sold and transported will be reported to the appropriate authority. We also observe that two sheep who needed urgent attention were shot within 5 minutes of being unloaded.

Our report on this yard will refer to individual incidents so that remedial actions can be taken.
