Veterinarian behaviourist Dr Kate Lindsey was approached for comment on the welfare aspects of the "covering up" of the loading ramp at Adelaide Port. Her comments on the photos provided were:
"This defies all logic in relation to current, competent and safe handling of cattle. It is well documented that any change in sensory input will slow progress of livestock. The changes in light levels, sound of the moving tarp and poor ventilation are all features of the tunnel likely to slow progress up the ramp. In addition, there doesn't appear to be immediate, safe access to the animals travelling in the tunnel in the event of a down or distressed animal."

The cruelty in the Live Export Industry is disgraceful and a crime against the Animals and the Australian public. The Government of the day has no compassion or interest to protect the Animals, so the Live Export Industry should be shutdown permanently.
