The Senate has passed a joint motion by Greens animal welfare spokesperson Senator Lee Rhiannon and Senator Derryn Hinch calling on the Turnbull government to ensure there will be no live export of equines for slaughter. HOORAY...and how ironic that it should be the last sitting day of pro-live ex Senator Chris Back.
However, this good news was offset by the grim news that Australian dairy cows will be winging their way to Qatar summer. It was only 5 years ago that gutsy veterinary technician Deb Clarke exposed the fate of Australian dairy cows in Qatar...and it wasnt pretty. If the current consignment are treated similarly, then we dont think the Qataris will be getting a lot of milk on their supermarket shelves.

Great news that the Senate is calling on the government to ban live export of horses for slaughter. Now I hope the Senate will call on the government to ban the live export of Australian cows and sheep.
