Subject: RE: Who´s Eric Bogle?
Quarrantine was the reason for the killing of all military animals taken out of Australia, or for leaving them alive with willing locals. The WWI Aussies in the Middle East had seen how local horses were treated, so preferred that they not be made to suffer. A few apparently did survive, with trusted locals. Recently there was a special Anzac Day TV doco that showed the same happened to Dogs taken to Vietnam.

Recent changes to Quarrantine Regulations, now allow the animals to be brought back and kept in quarrantine until they are deemd safe.
