NORWAY.- A year in prison for a farmer who let more than 400 pigs die


On Friday, March 21, a Norwegian farmer was sentenced to one year in prison for having let more than 400 pigs die of hunger and thirst.

The Court in Toensberg (South of Norway) considered that it was incomprehensible that, being aware of the animals’ condition, the farmer did nothing to prevent the tragedy.
