No comment from RSPCA on Wagga sheep death investigation


The RSPCA is staying tight-lipped as its investigation into an incident at the Livestock Marketing Centre continues.

People working near Wagga’s Livestock Marketing Centre (LMC) on Saturday, February 11 found a flock of 184 sheep left in a holding pen without shade or water as temperatures soared across the region.

The workers found a trough of water for the sheep and called LMC management and council. The matter was then referred to the RSPCA.

At the time, RSPCA inspector Stuart Swan said it was amazing only one sheep died in the conditions, but would not comment when The Daily Advertiser asked for an update on the investigation.

Meanwhile, police at Hay are seeking advice from the RSPCA following an incident of alleged animal neglect that occurred on February 10. Officers reportedly found two cages of small animals left without water in full sunlight on a 47 degree day.
