A Co Derry farmer was sentenced at Coleraine Magistrates’ Court today in respect of one charge of causing unnecessary suffering to a Limousin bull and one charge of failing to attach an approved ear tag to the bull.

John McCormack, of Bridge Street, Kilrea, Coleraine, was given a four month custodial sentence suspended for two years plus £22 costs. He had previously pleaded guilty to the charges.

This case arose from an anonymous call by a member of the public to a Divisional Veterinary Office.

A Department of Agriculture Inspector located the animal and such was its condition a DARD Veterinary Officer had to attend and euthanise it.
