Although we cannot comment on individual cases, it’s important to note that APHA takes potential breaches of animal welfare legislation very seriously. Where welfare regulations are breached, appropriate action is taken.

Anyone with concerns about the welfare of farmed animals should report the situation to APHA via the Defra Rural Helpline on 03000 200 301.
