The Clermont-Ferrand Criminal Court (Puy-de-Dôme) on Tuesday sentenced a farmer to 10,360 euros in fines after the hearing on November 9.

The sixty-year-old had left his animals without care and sometimes without food, reports

The breeder was tried for the first time, but an alert concerning his exploitation was launched in 2013 by the Departmental Directorate for the Protection of Populations (DDPP).

Animals and a suffering breeder

During a new check in early 2021, the DDPP noted the deplorable state of the farm.

Hungry and sick sheep and cows roamed among the corpses of decaying animals.

The respondent explained that he had gone through a difficult period.

He finally made up his mind to retire and reportedly found buyers for his farm.

His animals have so far been taken care of by an association.
