The boat belonged to a company called Wellard in Australia. Every year, Australia exports more thana million cows and two million sheepto the Middle East. Enclosed in cargo ships, the animals live through horrible conditions during the voyage, and many don't even survive.The organization Animal Australiahas since launched an investigationinto the inhumane treatment of animals during their transport and the conclusions are overwhelming.
Millions of cows, sheep and goats have endured long sea voyages just to be subject to what is often shocking mistreatment, then be slaughtered fully conscious in countries without laws protecting the well-being of animals.
A number of people demanded that the cow, who fought so hard for her life, be saved so that she can live out her days peacefully in a sanctuary. Sadly, the Wellard company has yet to comment on the affair, and the future of the animal is uncertain.
