The MV Bahijah set out for Israel on January 5th carrying 16,000 sheep and cows but turned back from the Red Sea due to the risk of attack off Yemen. The vessel finally arrived in Perth on Monday during a summer heatwave, and are in quarantine as required by Australia’s biosecurity rules.  The exporter, Israeli firm Bassem Dabbah, was hoping to unload some animals and return to sea for 33 days around Africa, but now the Israeli animal groups Let the Animals Live and Animals Now have filed legal proceedings to prevent the animals on board the Bahijah from being imported into Israel.
