Qantas pleaded guilty to animal cruelty charges related to the deaths of 68 rusa deer being carried in containers aboard a flight from Sydney to Bangkok last Feb. The RSPCA accused Qantas of using containers that were too small for the export cargo of deer, which died onboard the aircraft. The airline faces a maximum penalty of A$4,400 under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act. It will reappear in court in Sydney for sentencing Feb. 27.
OH DEER! ( Pardon the pun!)
Got to feel sorry for the deer!
