RSPCA WA is appalled at the footage of the abhorrent treatment of sheep in the long-haul live export industry. We are equally stunned that, despite the overwhelming evidence, the Federal Department of Agriculture has granted yet another export licence to this same, repeat-offender exporter.
The footage last night showed the distressing experience of sheep on long-haul export journeys – most of which is caused by high stocking density, extreme heat conditions, and lack of veterinary care.

The RSPCA is asking pet owners to keep sugary Easter treats out of their pet’s reach over the Easter holidays, with many traditional Easter foods such as chocolate and hot cross buns containing ingredients that are harmful to pets.
Owners are also advised to check their vet’s Easter opening hours and locate their nearest after-hours vet so they can act quickly if their pet becomes unwell over the Easter break.
Those going away for the Easter holidays are reminded not to leave pets home alone – with RSPCA Inspectors regularly called out to properties where owners have gone on holiday and failed to make adequate arrangements for their pet’s care.
