Defending Live Animal Export
Stephanie Coombes has gone from being a member of Animals Australia to working on the boats that takes our animals to their death overseas. She tells John Stanley why she supports live animal export.

When are we going to show the Halal slaughter going on here in Australia. It cannot be decreed as humane, so why only pick on other countries ??Johannes Saturday 10 November, 2012 - 2:28 PM
I wish all Syrians, Afghanis, Palestinians and Iraqi's were cattle, they would have got better justice and treatment.
This is western hypocrisy at its very worst!!!susie jarvis Saturday 10 November, 2012 - 7:11 AM
Live export only serves one purpose, to supply live sheep and cattle to the religious Halal death markets of the middle east and Asia. These barbaric factories of death where animals are slaughtered for nothing more than some warped and repulsive religious belief should make every Australia wake up to their future!Peter Friday 9 November, 2012 - 2:53 PM
So killed any flys lately or stepped on a cockroach? Did you kill them in a humane way maybe,they're animals to aren't they?Douglas Friday 9 November, 2012 - 11:58 AM
Stephanie, you may think that Live Export is fabulous but the rest of Australia don't agree with you. It will be banned. Find another job.Jane Thursday 8 November, 2012 - 8:50 PM
Steph Coombs didn't mention the fact that here in Australia 95% of our animals are pre stunned before slaughter. She mentioned there were rules and if importing countries didn't comply they would be cut off. Debatable. Once animals leave our shores we lose complete control of them as we saw recently. Also pre stunning is not a prerequisite in importing countries and we send from stunned to non stun lowering our welfare laws. After the atrocities committed in Indonesia, abattoirs last year stunning has been introduced to appease the people. In Jordan 80% of livestock is now stunned before slaughter because of Animals AustraliaÃ¢Â?Â?s Lyn White's friendship with HRH Princess Alia the sister of JordanÃ¢Â?Â?s king. Most importing countries do not have animal welfare laws at all. Our halal approved chilled meat sells very well in the middle east and elsewhere. If tariffs and incentives were removed from export our chilled meat would have a more competitive and safer market in which to do trade.Maureen Sladdin Thursday 8 November, 2012 - 8:55 AM
