PostSubject: The fine line between 'animal agriculture', and animal hoarding   Thu 09 Jul 2009, 6:24 am

These two short news stories are items from last week's local paper.
I can't say much in words just now, to express my feelings about people who're living at this level in society.

Continued without plea

The case of a man charged with three offences regarding the care and disposal of animals has been continued without plea.

It is charged that, between February 27th and March 6th, at Bigswell Road, Stenness, Thomas Hugh Thomson (70) of Grind, Rendall, caused a Shetland-type ewe unnecessary suffering by failing to provide adequate nutrition or veterinary care.

He is also charged with causing unnecessary suffering to 108 sheep, by omitting to provide them with adequate nutrition.

Then, between March 1st-6th, being in possession of three sheep carcasses, he failed to dispose of them as required.

The case next calls on July the 15th.


Carcass Disposal

A 55 year-old man has admitted failing to comply with regulations for disposing of animal carcasses.
Raymond Craigie Lyon, of Clook, Inntertown, Stromness, is charged with being in possession of 14 sheep carcasses between March the 11th-25th, and failing to comply as the animals had not been collected, transported, identified, and disposed of, without undue delay.

Narrating the case, procurator fiscal, Sue Foard, said the offence came to light after an SSPCA officer received a complaint regarding dead sheep.

She said that when the accused was spoken to, he seemed "very remorseful, and said that he was intending on getting out of farming."

Sentence is deferred on Lyon until October the 28th, for him to dispose of his flock of around 283 sheep.
