Protection of animal rights shouldn't be in the hands of the Agriculture Ministry
An Israeli newspaper, Haaretz, reported this comment yesterday after an undercover investigation by an Israeli journalist revealed systemic animal abuse in an ESCAS- approved abattoir that processes Australian cattle.
'Exposure of abuse is added proof that the protection of animal rights shouldn't be left in the hands of the Agriculture Ministry,' says Israel's Environmental Protection Minister. Perhaps the Minister was speaking for Australia also as DAFF, in its self-described role as "independent regulator", continues to insist the ESCAS system is working.
