The photo of a cow tied down in an open trailer being hauled along the Pacific Highway in South Wales has generated shock and outrage. The Mid North Coast NSW man faces multiple animal cruelty charges for inflicting pain to an animal and failing to provide veterinary treatment to an injured animal.
According to AbcNews, a witness driving along the highway saw the man transporting the cow in the open trailer. Worried about the cow and the safety of other vehicle users, the witness took the photos and sent them over to the NSW Police. When an investigation commenced, authorities discovered the 67-year-old man’s other animals – two cows inside of a shed had died and two other cows were in horrible condition. The cow that had been transported on the trailer was found dead as well as its recently born calf.
The RSPCA were notified and the two remaining cows were euthanized. The accused is scheduled to appear in the Kempsey Local Court on July 16.
