Australians dump beef after Indonesia abattoir film shows horrific animal cruelty...

Australian butchers are reporting a slump in demand for beef after ABC broadcast an investigation into animal cruelty in Indonesian abattoirs.

Butchers are reporting a drop in beef sales of 10-15% since last week's programme featuring graphic footage of animals being slashed and whipped.

The Australian government has since suspended live animal exports to the abattoirs shown in the programme.

But there are growing calls for a blanket ban on exports to Indonesia.

The Australian Meat Industry Council said business had been dramatically affected by the outpouring of community concern. More...
