This case concerned the transportation of a Holstein cow for slaughter — where it was later discovered that she had a severely infected leg. The respondent, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, alleged that the applicant, E. Grof Livestock Ltd. loaded, transported or caused to be loaded or transported an animal that could not be transported without suffering, in violation contrary to paragraph 138(2)(a) of the Health of Animals Regulations (C.R.C., c. 296).
Following an oral hearing and a review of all oral and written submissions of the parties, the Canada Agricultural Review Tribunal, determined, on the balance of probabilities, that the applicant committed the violation and was liable to pay the respondent, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, a monetary penalty of $6,600.
