Mr Samuel David Gillespie, Ballynafie Road, Portglenone, Ballymena was convicted at Omagh Magistrates’ Court on 9 September 2016 of one charge of transporting an animal that was not fit for the journey.

Mr Gillespie was fined £500 plus a £15 offender levy.

This case arose when an Official Veterinary Surgeon (OVS) at an abattoir examined a cow presented by Mr Gillepsie. The cow was lying in a trailer when it was seen by the OVS and, in the opinion of the OVS, was extremely distressed. The cow died before the OVS had an opportunity to euthanise it.
