The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) have arrested and charged fifty-nine-year-old Peter Wiebe for abusing cattle and illegally selling uninspected meat. Last November, the Alberta Agriculture Inspections and Investigation Section, RCMP Livestock Investigative Unit, and Wheatland County all received complaints about Wiebe slaughtering injured and sick cattle on his farm east of Calgary. He has been charged with allowing animals to be in distress, unlawful disposal of dead cattle, causing unnecessary suffering to animals, dealing with livestock or livestock products without being licensed, selling uninspected meat, and failing to properly label uninspected meat.
