Ship still stranded, cant be fixed in Aust but animal welfare absolutely fine....?
So the engines cant be repaired on the Ocean Outback and it is now at least 9-10 days onboard for all those animals. Wellard, in their statements have assured everyone of the excellent animal welfare......food, ventilation etc.....but how about the deck cleaning? Washing out the cattle is not possible in port.....and it is unlikely that the stricken vessel will have been taken out to sea to do a washdown when repairs the priority.
So.....lets just think about it.....plenty of warm days in the last week, plenty of faeces.....these cattle must be knee deep in slurry. Not to mention the ammonia concentrations.....are they being monitored? For both animal and human health?
And....what now? Proceed on one engine..to where?
What an absolute disaster.....AGAIN.

As a great granddaughter, granddaughter and daughter of farmers I am disgusted with this trade and anyone who is involved in it .
