Rodeo cow­boy fac­ing le­gal ac­tion

Weekend Herald - - News -

The New Zealand An­i­mal Law As­so­ci­a­tion has filed crim­i­nal charges against a rodeo cow­boy for il­le­gally us­ing an elec­tric shocker on calves and cat­tle at North­land rodeos. The Min­istry for Pri­mary In­dus­tries in­ves­ti­gated al­leged abuse last year but de­cided not to pros­e­cute and is­sued a warn­ing. How­ever, the as­so­ci­a­tion is launch­ing a pri­vate pros­e­cu­tion “against an in­di­vid­ual breach­ing rodeo’s own rules.”
