18.01.2017 | Visiting Mundijong Animal Market

Mundijong Animal Market, Australia

Animals’ Angels attend the Mundijong Market where there are 15 x pigs, 2 x ponies, several poultry birds, native birds, rabbits, guinea pigs and a ferret for sale.

The temperature today is approx. 33°C with little wind. It is overcast and humid. There is no legislation which prohibits the sale and transport of animals in this heat and so despite the potential distress and heat stress animals will endure, the market carries on.

The handling of the large animals was careful.  Many birds appeared to suffer from the heat. Many had their mouths open panting to cool down. Two boxes holding chickens were overcrowded and one box was insufficient in height. DAFWA were in attendance and people were careful in how they handled and loaded birds however rough handling and poor transport are issues to be constantly monitored at this market.
