In June 2013 Animals Australia was documenting evidence of live export breaches in Jordan when information was supplied about the illegal onward trucking of Australian sheep from Jordan to Lebanon — a country that is not approved to import Australian animals.
Investigators immediately travelled to Beirut where investigators located a mob of Australian sheep hidden away in a converted carpark.
The animals were being offered for private purchase and slaughter, in contravention of the Exporter Supply Chain Assurance System (ESCAS).
Animals Australia immediately lodged a formal complaint and all of the evidence with the Department of Agriculture.
