Sask. producer charged after cattle seizure

One person faces several charges after more than 300 cattle were seized from his farm last winter.

Warren Russell of the Stoughton, Sask., area has been charged under Section 4 of the province’s Animal Protection Act. That section prohibits anyone from causing an animal to be in distress or to continue to be in distress.

He also faces two federal charges under the Criminal Code for willfully permitting “to be caused unnecessary pain, suffering or injury to an animal” and for willfully neglecting or failing “to provide suitable and adequate food, water, shelter and care for animals.”

He is set to appear in Weyburn provincial court Nov. 12.
