After a day of sweltering heat (even Rottnest 43 degrees Celcius!), the Bahijah made its way into Freo Port in the early hours of this morning.
VALE has no info on what is happening other than the general Dept release:
So, yes it does look like this export company wants to re-export some of these animals that have already been on a ship nearly 30 days (2 days of loading, 28 days at sea). Any new voyage will be a minimum of 5 weeks once it leaves port so that means any voyage total could be 70 days. This is totally unacceptable for animal welfare and the Government must act to stop this barbarism. The voyage of the Cormo Express one of Australia's worst live sheep export disasters was 79 days. This will go close.
If biosecurity risk is such that they can unload some animals, then they can unload them all. Unload them all and stop them enduring any more - they have suffered enough.
