As­so­ci­a­tion calls for ‘proof dogs aren’t com­pro­mised’


A WORK­ING dog rescue as­so­ci­a­tion called on live­stock trans­porters to prove their dogs are not com­pro­mised while on the job.

The com­ments fol­low re­as­sur­ance from the road trans­port in­dus­try that happy, healthy work­ing dogs were an es­sen­tial part of any live­stock trans­port out­fit.

How­ever in an on­line re­sponse, the Aus­tralian Work­ing Dog Rescue has called for proof. Glenn Piper: In­no­cent un­til proven guilty, not the other way around. Tell the med­dlers to do their own stud­ies and find proof and let the live­stock in­dus­try get on with their jobs in the mean­time.

Marla Stone: Our sec­tor of the trans­port in­dus­try is sick of be­ing at­tacked and threat­ened, we are not crim­i­nals and we do not like peo­ple try­ing to shame and bully us.

Roz Nanna Turner: I’d like sci­en­tific proof th­ese peo­ple know the mean­ing of the word ‘work’ and if any of th­ese id­iots have even done a hard day’s work.

Dean Bull: Moved on from grey­hounds now they got proven to be vig­i­lantes, your turn. — Read the lat­est up­date on the is­sue be­low.


The live­stock in­dus­try has slammed the claims.
