“The Department of Agriculture is investigating footage uploaded to social media that appears to show Australian sheep being mistreated by Jordanian sellers ahead of the Eid festival.

Footage taken by local investigators for Animals Australia as well as market sellers at 10 sites across Jordan shows sheep with Australian national livestock identification ear tags being forced to jump off the backs of trucks, dragged by one leg and bundled into cars for home slaughter, which is banned under animal welfare rules.” 14 August 2020
