But....now...the newest edition to the live export fleet has proved disastrous. In April, 7.79% of 1,236 cattle died on an eight-day trip from Darwin to Malaysia and Brunei. 90 were euthanised as a result of slipping. [How long ago did Banney et al review bedding and floor surfaces? 8 years ago...?]
The ship's Australian certificate has now been revoked and it cannot be used for export again until it obtains a valid certificate.
Perhaps it is time to revoke live export instead?
