After watching 4 corners footage of Bloody Business on the trade of Australian cattle to Indonesia, I began researching the aftermath. The initial reaction was widespread disgust, it caused a lot of uproar and a petition was handed to federal parlimanet to ban this live animal export, however, it was denied. Since, this issue seems to have died down and years later almost forgotten about. The allowance of this continued trade enables denial and ignorance, not just in the host country, but here in Australia too. We’re allowing one species to be killed for the consumption of another. Who got to decide which life is more valuable?
Another fantastic example of Australia’s complete ignorance and self-centred nature is their shark culling attempts.
