A farmer in the UK has been charged with the production of Marijuana AND animal neglect, as reported by the Daily Record.
Animal body parts were found thrown all over the holding of farmer Kirsten Wilson, on Park Farm in Turnberry, UK. The courts heard how the accused was putting the lives of her two horses, pony and five sheep, in danger with her poor husbandry practices.
She was charged in Ayr Sheriff Court, after a Scottish SPCA investigation found the farm holding in deplorable conditions. Officers discovered animal carcasses left around the holding, putting the other animals in grave danger. Officers reported ‘junk’ being thrown around the property, also putting the surviving animals in danger.
The items found included bricks, poles, faeces, netting and broken roof panels. Nails and pieces of wire were also discovered.
Wilson, who is aged 49, was also charged with the production of Marijuana and a failure to provide clean bedding for her animals, in March of last year. The courts heard how her negligence had potentially exposed her animals to injury and disease.
Sentencing for her drug charges have been adjourned, whilst she will receive her punishment for animal abuse charges next Month.
