After 7 days bobbing around Fremantle, Australian sheep and cattle are finally back into Fremantle Port. This voyage, under ASEL definitions will have been at least 40 days - 2 days loading plus 38 days of sailing - and thats before unloading is completed, likely at least another 2 days. Forty two days! This will be the longest voyage for sheep in decades.
These animals should be suitable rested and then processed in Australia. They should not have to endure ever having to go on a ship again. Most animal welfare experts would agree that even once is too much. Twice would be barbaric....especially after what they have already been through.
