Reprieve for South African Sheep
Al Mawashi has paused the live export of sheep from South Africa to the Middle East, blaming the South African Department of Agriculture for “dragging their feet”.
The South African animal welfare agency NSPCA says this is a victory for the animals - it is and thanks to the tireless work of NSPCA
However, concerningly, sheep will instead be exported from Australia – where the industry is currently trying to undo the moratorium on the live export of sheep from Australia’s winter to the Middle East summer.
Let’s hope that the Australian government stands firm on animal welfare and doesnt bow to the Kuwaiti pressure.
