In June 2013 Animals Australia investigators travelled to Jordan after receiving information about the deliberate, widespread and systemic on-selling of Australian sheep occurring in breach of Australia's live export rules.
Over a number of days evidence was collected that showed Australian sheep being offered for sale from 26 roadside stalls and markets — in direct contravention of the Exporter Supply Chain Assurance System (ESCAS) which dictates that animals must only go to approved abattoirs.
The evidence also documents an Australian sheep being dragged into a butcher shop amongst these roadside stalls and having his throat cut while fully conscious.
Animals Australia immediately lodged a formal complaint and all of the evidence with the Department of Agriculture.
