No prosecution?

Written by  Milking It

OPINION: A North Canterbury cow sanctuary that was investigated following animal welfare concerns seems to have escaped prosecution.

Milking It understands the Ministry for Primary Industries won't be taking owner Jasmine Hubber to court. Hubber was 17 when she opened Til the Cows Come Home near Cust in July 2017 to provide a safe haven for rescued farm animals.

At one stage, she had 200 cows across six grazing sites. Many of them were sick or injured bobby calves or retired dairy cows, which were saved from slaughter.

But MPI had to sept in after concerns were raised about the state of the animals.
