KARACHI: Authorities on Monday denied a report that thousands of Australian sheep culled over disease fears were killed improperly, insisting they were slaughtered in accordance with Islamic practice.

A court on Saturday halted the cull of 21,000 Australian sheep amid a dispute over whether or not they are sick, but a senior official insisted the 7,600 animals already killed had not been mistreated.

The shipment of sheep arrived in Pakistan almost a month ago after being turned away by Bahrain, and livestock officials ordered them to be culled after they tested positive for salmonella and actinomyces bacteria.

But after an appeal by importer PK Meat and Food Company, the Sindh High Court rejected the test results and ordered fresh samples to be taken and sent to Britain for analysis.

A report in a local newspaper said the authorities had used untrained workers who had stabbed and clubbed the sheep to death and even buried some while still alive, prompting anger in Australia.

According to the report, which referred to video shot on a mobile phone, some of the animals were said to be disposed of in shallow graves.

Roshan Shaikh, Karachi’s top administrative official, said reports of the animals’ mistreatment were untrue.

“We have slaughtered the sheep in Islamic manner and duly buried them deep in trenches ensuring that they could not cause danger to human population or animals,” he said.

“There was just a single sheep the throat of which was not properly cut, but that was a human error and not deliberate.” The Australian government has said it is looking into the reports.

The court will reconvene to decide on the sheep’s fate on October 16, after receiving results from the British laboratory. Samples for the new tests were taken in the presence of Australian experts, Shaikh said.

Australia has insisted salmonella and actinomyces are part of normal bacteria found in sheep and pose no threat to human health.

The incident has renewed calls for a total end to Australia’s live export trade, which is worth about US$1 billion a year and employs around 10,000 people.

Live sheep exports are wrong and cruel..Butcher them in Australia then export..But this business of putting sheep on long ship voyages is stupid.

I agree with first poster..greed is mass producing stock for overseas whilst our local meat consumption has risen in price.

Much better we all eat well, and affordable..Then just a few getting wealthy by exports.

Yeah KAZAKHSTAN could be next source of Live Sheep Imports for Moslems

The two countries finalised three memorandums of understanding at a meeting of the Pakistan-Russia Inter-Governmental Commission earlier this month for their signing during President Putin’s planned trip. The MoUs relate to expansion of Pakistan Steel Mills and cooperation in energy and education sectors.

Russian position was that the MoUs were non-binding and largely a reiteration of agreements signed last year during President Asif Ali Zardari’s visit to Moscow.

“Declarations are galore but they have little impact on the ground,” the Russian diplomat said.

Moscow’s main concern was Pakistan’s slow progress towards major projects in the energy sector, including Central Asia-South Asia electricity transmission from Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan to Afghanistan and Pakistan (CASA-1000), and construction of rail tracks and motor roads from Tajikistan to Pakistan to create new trade routes in the region.

Russia has been interested in the Iran-Pakistan gas pipeline project.

Ban all live animal exports. If moslem countries want Australian beef and lamb, it should only be sold to them chilled or frozen. If they can afford cars mobile phones and TVs they can afford refrigerators.
Keep jobs in Australia, not export them to do-it-yourself car parks in foreign hell-holes.
Sounds like a great idea only the unions screw up the Meat processing and slauntering industry in this Labor Party F#$ked country asking for over the top wages. We hade heaps of aboators in this country 30 yrs ago but the unions screwed it up with the help of the Labor Party bone heads.
