The RSPCA has welcomed the Australian government's release of proposed new regulatory protections for live sheep exported to the Middle East during the months of September and October but is concerned at the suggestion live sheep exports might yet be resumed during this highest-risk period.
The Department of Agriculture's proposed new regulatory options, released last week for a 10-day public consultation period, include two options that the RSPCA says reflect the science and evidence, and significantly restrict live sheep exports during the month of September.
However, despite all evidence, there is one option that would allow exports to continue throughout September. The government havent publicised this (no doubt they notified industry) so go onto the government website and have your say....but you need to get in before the 22nd July.
