Unfortunately for me this is not great news. With all the cruelty we humans inflict upon them, I kind of wish they were the unfeeling, unthinking beings most people think they are.

This week there has been fresh revelations about the mistreatment of Australian cattle exported overseas. Animals Australia has obtained video evidence of Australian cattle being killed with sledgehammers in Vietnamese abattoirs. Despite repeated assurances from the government and the live export industry that steps have been taken to prevent such cruelty and mistreatment of Australian animals is no longer occurring, this most recent evidence shows otherwise.
