I guess they papers are saying 50,000 today. Did you murder 10,000
Lying & cruel Aussies.
SYDNEY, Australia — Animal welfare groups are demanding that more
than 50,000 sheep marooned aboard a ship in the Persian Gulf be
humanely slaughtered as soon as possible.
The sheep had originally been destined for Saudi Arabia but
authorities there refused to allow the ship to dock, citing an
outbreak of disease among some of the animals on board.
That was six weeks ago.
Now, with temperatures soaring aboard the Dutch-owned MV Cormo
Express, Australian animal welfare groups are demanding the animals be
humanely killed before they succumb to infection and heat exhaustion.
“It’s going to become a floating charnel house soon enough,” RSPCA
Australia president High Wirth said, adding that the situation on the
boat had become “really desperate.”
The case has attracted widespread media attention in Australia with
newspapers dubbing the vessel “the ship of death.”
Saudi authorities refused to accept the sheep because some of the
animals were suffering from a low-grade infection known as scabby
The percent of the shipment infected is disputed by Australia, which
has since sought to find an alternative port for the sheep — even
offering them for free to anyone in the region willing to take them.
So far, that offer has drawn a blank.
In the meantime Australia has suspended shipments of livestock to the
Middle East pending efforts to negotiate a deal with the Saudis
guaranteeing that all future exports will be unloaded.
On Tuesday Pakistan became the third country to refuse to accept the
sheep after authorities in the United Arab Emirates also blocked entry
to the vessel.
That prompted to animal welfare groups to call for the sheep to be
swiftly and humanely killed to end their suffering.
“The only way to end the suffering is to have them dead. It’s either
do it on board or find a port…and send them to an abattoir,” RSPCA
Australia’s Hugh Wirth said.
According to another welfare group, Animals Australia, the ship has a
“captive bolt gun” on board, which could be used to stun the sheep
before their throats are cut.
The group’s executive director, Glenys Oogjes, told Reuters the
carcasses could then be fed into a destroyer, or macerator, on board
and the remains could be mixed with water before being pumped into the
sea in international waters.
Australia is the world’s largest exporter of live animals, with Saudi
Arabia being its principal market.
The trade is worth millions of dollars a year to Australian farmers
but animal welfare groups say it causes unnecessary suffering to the
animals during their transportation and after their arrival in the

Get a grip idiot, they are not our sheep, go rant at the Saudis

I did eat a lamb roast yestrday. That’s a part of a sheep, but not all
10,000. So if you want to implicate me in this cruelty to animals, I
must plead guilty to being party to the death of one baby sheep. D***
tasty it was, too.
So far as the sheep on that boat go, I don’t know much about it –
other than the fact that it all seems like typical, beuracratic
bullshit and buckpassing that the media will beat up – and up and up
and up – until something else comes along, like a cat needing to be
rescued from a tree. Or perhaps a dog that surfs.
Incidently, how many whales did you kill today? I know you
Scandanavians love a bit of blubber.
(Hey, don’t take this seriously. I’m jerking your chain – it’s usenet,
thats what this place is for , yeah?).
What you can take seriously is that while the Sheep were born and sold
here in Australia, the livestock were bought by Saudis and shipped on
a Dutch owned ship. Try trolling their newsgroups instead. We treat
animals fairly and with the greatest of respect. It’s asylum seekers
that we beat up on…

Avoid Australia. They allow ships filled with 60,000 sheep to be
tortured on long deasth ship voyages to nowhere. See below. Tell you
friends what a TRULY EVIL country Australia is.
Franzschwarzen 2008-02-09 04:07:41
Aussie animal torture is a big industry “down under.” Down under also
refers to h*** where Australia’s animal torturers should go.

Boy you post alot of propaghanda. Whats your problem? You have been
told over and over that the ship is Dutch (owned by VROON b.l.
http://www.vroon.nl ) and that the sheep were owned by a Saudi before
there were even loaded.
Whats your beef? Did you go to Australia and get kicked out for drugs
or violating your visa and take a job putting up posters or something?
Or did all the woman just avoid you like the plague or a member of the
Liberal party??? Perhaps an Aussie sports team kicked the c*** out of
your national team and you lost money to the bookies???

Ask the kiwis how many they tortured.
oh wait…they’ll say the sheep enjoyed it.

Why tell people that Aussies are evil? We think animal crultey is wrong, but
we can’t help if the imported sheep are diseased! The RSPCA told they should
be humanely killed. Australia is a great place to be. You don’t care about
the sheep, you just want to bad-mouth Australia. Why bring up killed
backpackers? Because you want to bad-mouth Australia. 99% percent of Aussies
are decent people, but some are murderers, you can’t tell people that we are
an evil country because of the other 1%! The ship was owned by a dutch
company and used bu the saudies ok?. Don’t go bad-mouthing Australia because
1. We had to kill them because they were diseased and 2. Even if we did kill
them for no reason it doesn’t mean the wwhole country is evil, just the
people who chose to kill the sheep would be. Think before you say something.

I couldn’t care what his preferences are. At least he doesn’t screw
all the people of Australia like Howard and Co.
Really? I guess thats why I’m the treasurer of a support group for

The boy thinks he is good, but 2 or 3, that’s school boy stuff. Of
