Footage of loading camels in Adelaide highlights the necessity of independent observation of our Australian animals at loading in Australia.
Vet and animal behaviourist, Dr Kate Lindsey stated that "the camels were tortured and maliciously tormented and, as a consequence, suffered pain and/or fear distress."
When public access to Fremantle Port was banned after VALE'S Dr Sue Foster was found to be legally observing port activities, Fremantle Port had this to say "Animal welfare aspects of this trade are monitored by the Federal Department of Agriculture Fisheries and Forestry and the Western Australian Department of Agriculture and Food. Inspections of livestock at the port are undertaken by AQIS accredited veterinarians and DAFWA inspectors." So where were the relevant AQIS and state agriculture department personnel at Adelaide?
