Buffalo going back home
AUSTRALIA'S live animal export industry has taken a new turn, with the first ever shipment of buffalo heading to Vietnam from the Northern Territory. The (NT) government says it will also develop opportunities for Indigenous communities to harvest wild buffalo from herds on Aboriginal land. An original shipment of 222 domesticated buffalo will be joined by another 600 next week, and 1500 more in April when the wet season eases. Australian officials will travel to Vietnam in a fortnight to ensure that animal welfare conditions are being met. This ticks all the boxes; income for the state, income for the enterprise and income for our indigenous mates, therefore animal activists will be all over it as they send covert cameramen to Vietnam to film buffalo being processed. Thankfully, when the activist films show on Australian TV, the current adult government wont be closing the industry down like that fool of a man Ludwig who ruined the live cattle export business, affecting thousands of people, based on a TV show. The enterprise can progress and money can now be invested with some sense of security. I don't particularly like buffalo as when I was a young tacker in Vietnam, whenever we came across buffalo in the field they would attack us, I guess because we smelt different to the Vietnamese. Bad lifestyle choice by the buffalo as part of the different smell was made up of weaponry....heavy weaponry....and a lot of it!
