A detained ship tilting wildly in Victorian waters has 4000 cattle aboard

RUMOUR FILE UPDATE

3AW Breakfast has confirmed a ship rocking wildly on Victorian waters with more than 4000 cattle aboard has been detained.

The Rumour File was alerted to the M. V. Jawan tipping side-to-side in the Port of Portland this morning, with footage coming from the Animal Justice Party.

The Australian Maritime Safety Authority later told 3AW Breakfast the M V Jawan had been detained.

Investigators boarded the vessel yesterday and their investigation is ongoing.

It’s not yet known how long that investigation will take.

They said there was no suggestion of injury to the 4327 cattle aboard.

“They can’t be all that comfortable, though,” Ross said.
