No, its not Animals Australia or those dreadful animal advocates, it is an article in the ultraconservative West Australian newspaper this morning.
The heading: "Wellard an embarrassing mess"
The text: "Now it’s not just ugly, it’s plain embarrassing."...
"...confirmed investors’ fears that the live export industry is a lot more unpredictable than they would have garnered from the company’s prospectus and that management’s visibility on earnings is worryingly clouded." ...
"It is the corporate equivalent of death by a thousand cuts."...
"...it will enter its second financial year with its credibility in tatters and facing a long period of rehabilitation."...
"For investors pursuing predictability, Wellard has been a disaster."...
Hmm no wonder Elders CEO said: "live exports were a high risk area from a company's financial and reputational points of view." ...YES THEY ARE!
Maybe the same economics that failed Australian animals so badly will end up saving them after all....ie when it all goes bust.

In 1969-70 I served with the Australian Army in Sth Vietnam. During my 12 months operational tour I experienced many things, however one particular memory embedded itself in my mind and I've never been able to shake it. I once happened upon a dog slaughterhouse in a major town. Words cannot express the revulsion I still feel more than 50 years later at what I saw in that wretched place.

Thank you for your support and for sharing your experiences Mr Wilson. Your care, compassion and courage to air memories which we are sure you would rather forget, is much appreciated.
