Deja Vu all over again – new video footage of appalling live export cruelty

Getting more than sick of this story repeating itself …….

Over ten years ago I wrote this post expressing despair at the repeating cycle, which goes pretty much as follows:

a media organisation screens video footage taken by an animal welfare organisation showing terrible cruelty inflicted on animals as part of the live export trade from Australia, followed by huge public outrage, followed by government Ministers and the industry saying it is totally unacceptable, followed by some form of inquiry and suspension or moratorium, followed by assurances by government and industry saying everything is not totally fine and “world’s best practice”, followed by a period of quiet, followed sometime later a media organisation screening new video footage taken by an animal welfare organisation showing terrible cruelty inflicted on animals as part of the live export trade from Australia, …….

Tonight, the ABC screened new video footage taken by an animal welfare organisation showing terrible cruelty inflicted on animals as part of the live export trade from Australia.  I wonder what will happen next.
