PUBLISHED ON: 20 June 2013

In June 2013 Animals Australia was documenting evidence of live export breaches in Jordan when information was supplied about the illegal onward trucking of Australian sheep from Jordan to Lebanon — a country that is not approved to import Australian animals.

Investigators immediately travelled to Beirut where investigators located a mob of Australian sheep hidden away in a converted carpark.

The animals were being offered for private purchase and slaughter, in contravention of the Exporter Supply Chain Assurance System (ESCAS).

Animals Australia immediately lodged a formal complaint and all of the evidence with the Department of Agriculture.
