They can't just disappear even though those waters are known for their depth. I mean 28 000 (!) animals is 28 000 animals. Might sound gross but the carcuses must float up somewhere. I thought it was a typo, can you transport 28 000 livestock in a shipment?

I'm pretty sure it is not a typo. Those boats are pretty big.

And they tend to pack livestock pretty tight, it's cheaper that way.

Other than humanely raised, when's the last time you saw a piece of unbruised meat?

Another reason to buy local food.

2800 I could understand or well, fathom, but one ship packed with 28 000 livestock...
Hopefully they died fast.
