Right, so it's absolutely fine for this parasite to send his sheep to countries where he knows they will be tortured. Thought so, they're all the same.

Sheep export market to be limited by new welfare standards
« Reply #1 on: June 14, 2012, 06:33:30 PM »
A Gascoyne pastoralist says the Federal Government's new live export welfare standards will limit the markets available to sheep exporters.
Some of the biggest importers of Australian sheep have until the end of August to meet new welfare standards and there's concerns about demand from those countries once the standards are introduced.
Tim Meecham from Quobba Station on the Gascoyne coastline says the regulations will push importers away.
"It's now just getting too hard for importing countries to comply with how the Federal Government is telling them how they should be killing animals," he said.
"There just seems to be easier options for them, other countries to go to that they don't have to go through all this paperwork."
