4.000 animals died in mad frenzy at hands of sick farmer with Dept Agriculture watching.

WATERFORD : BARBARIC PIG FARMER WHO USED SLEGE-HAMMER ON PIGS NOW ON THE TAX DEFAULTERS LIST.

A farmer who single-handedly slaughtered almost 4,000 pigs in a frenzied attack after a banned food additive was discovered on his farm was ordered to pay over €71,000 in fines and legal costs. Pig farmer Thomas Galvin from Ballinamuck, Dungarvan, Co Waterford denied 29 charges brought against him. Galvin was found guilty of a string of offences including the movement of pigs onto and off restricted lands following the discovery of a highly toxic additive, Carbadox, in April 2002.

NOW animal abuser Tom Galvin of Ballyhanrahan Co Waterford is on the current Tax Defaulters List for Underdeclaration of Income Tax, Revenue bogus Non Resident Account Investigation case.
A TOTAL amount of euro 186,596.00 is listed with a penalty of euro 48,798.00.
AFAR considers the violations committed against sentient and gentle animals who were bludgeoned by both sledgehammer and the use of a bolt gun by GALVIN [which was then videoed at the time ] to be the most vile of crimes. His suspended sentence then did not fit the crime he committed.

• In 2002-The court also heard how pigs taken from the restricted area eventually made it onto supermarket shelves. On 4/11/06 at Clonmel District Court Galvin was also found guilty of obstructing and impeding an SIU officer. The judge convicted Galvin on 19 charges. He imposed fines totalling €15,200 and a five-month suspended prison sentence. Galvin was also ordered to pay over €56,000 in costs.

4000 cruel animal deaths mean nothing to speciesists

it isn't even worth a day in prison.

considering the relentless industrial slaughter of millions of animals every single day without even a second thought from them, this is not really surprising though.

What we perpetrate on our own species becomes less surprising when we become aware of what is actually done in our name to helpless animals daily for profit.

The majority of people in the country could not care less about their fellow human beings, much less defenceless animals. It's a law of the jungle society.
