Australia: Visiting Naracoorte Saleyard

Animals’ Angels visit the yard where 741 cattle and 3936 sheep are for sale.

Although the day is cool, the water troughs are clean and provide fresh water. The density of two pens of cattle prevent them easily reaching water.

We observe a truck overcrowded with sheep and we identify a Hereford cow with cancer in the corner of her eye socket. We believe she is in pain. We also identify five sheep who we believe are not fit to transport. The six animals are shot. It appears they were not assessed or assessed correctly but sold and readied for transport to destination. This will be in our report.
