Livestock Agent Fined $1500

The Echuca Magistrates Court's fined a livestock agent $1500, after they transported two unhealthy cattle to a Northern Victorian Abattoir.

The driver plead guilty to the charge of failing to inspect the animals, which had to be destroyed by the On Plant Veterinarian due to their chronic pain conditions.

Acting Senior Veterinary Officer John Ryan says its horrific that the animals were transported while suffering a septic leg and lumpy jaw lesion.
