11,000 Australian sheep arrive in UAE for Eid

A shipment of nearly 11,000 Australian sheep aboard the world’s largest livestock vessel arrived in Dubai on Tuesday ahead of Eid Al Adha, when demand for sheep soars, newspapers said on Wednesday.

The ship docked at Jebel Ali port and officials said they were examining the animals to ensure they are free of diseases before letting them in.

The livestock aboard the world’s largest cattle ship that can carry 100,000 sheep would be distributed to local markets before Eid Al Adha early next month.
