Cruelty to animals and livestock: 'Australian sheep are being mistreated and brutally slaughtered at a livestock market in Kuwait.'

"@newscomauHQ: Cruelty to Australian sheep being assessed http://bit.ly/XphIfl" -extracted from twitter.

"THE federal government says it is assessing claims Australian sheep are being mistreated and brutally slaughtered at a livestock market in Kuwait.

Animals Australia says the Department of Agriculture Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF) has taken too long to respond to the allegations.

The animal welfare group, which was instrumental in exposing cruelty towards Australian cattle in Indonesia in 2011, first reported serious breaches of the federal government's Exporter Supply Chain Assurance System (ESCAS) at Kuwait's Al Rai market in August, and followed up with a second formal complaint last week." -extracted from website, link above.

If man can kill another man in cold blood,
And sleep peacefully the night thereafter;
What's a sheep or any other livestock
To them. Animal cruelty is real and hard
To digest... Help stop this cruel and
Unjust act mankind commits on all our
Creatures, big and small.
