Australia: We Critizise Transports and Handling at Mundijong Animal Market

Chicken in Cage at Mundijong Market

Animals’ Angels visits the animal market in Mundijong in Western Australia to check whether improvements have happened. The sheep/pig ramp is not fit for purpose and appears to breach the saleyard regulations as 5 planks are rotten. However it is not barricaded so people can still use it. Handling and the transport of birds is at times unacceptable. One buyer intended to put boxes of birds inside a fully enclosed windowless metal trailer. Water was available in most of not all cages and the birds had space to move. The Government regulator was not present.
