Alberta man charged with selling unlicensed meat, illegal disposal of dead animals

Canada Global (Web News) After reports to authorities about a man slaughtering sick and injured calves, an Albertan man is now being charged with various offences.

Six counts were brought against Wheatland County resident Peter Wiebe, 59, including inflicting needless suffering to animals and illegally disposing of deceased cattle.

In a press release, the RCMP claimed that they had proof that the man wasn’t feeding and caring for his animals properly.

When the site was examined by the RCMP, Alberta Agriculture, and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, they discovered workers actively slaughtering cattle. Officers reported finding 36 dead calves and more than 100 tags from butchered cows.

The selling of uninspected meat, according to the RCMP, “may result in severe sickness or death.”
