“There are 30 charges in total relating to the Animal Welfare Act. They relate to causing unnecessary suffering to a range of animals including a turkey, a cockerel, a ewe, a male lamb, a Canada goose, a cob, a pony, a lesser black headed gull, a common buzzard, an adult ram, a goat and a pig.

“They also relate to failing to meet the welfare needs of four piglets. As this is still an ongoing case, no further information will be made available at this stage.”
