After the DAWR published the first IO Summary detailing heat stress on the Bahijah, the two words "heat stress" in lower case were never again included on an IO Summary.
Yep.....Moss Review over, the lack of transparency and the cover up continues. Check out VALE's latest web page for the Official Independent Observer Summaries, any available FOI data for each voyage and VALE's analysis of each of these independently observed voyages: www.vale.org.au/independent-observer-reports.html
DAWR has covered up and in doing so has deceived the government which has now allowed voyages to the Middle East in May. This despite the fact that the one voyage that went very close to the mortality limit (0.98%!) was in May and that animals on some voyages (including pastoral cattle) suffered and died from heat stress.
Will we bother submitting our comment to government...unlikely as it is a waste of time but we will continue to let veterinarians and the public know what is really happening and what DAWR are hiding.
