#TheList Graham Lee John Charles Anstey, born 15/10/1974, formerly of Trackside Farm, Yeovil and currently of Spooner Road, Wymondham, Norfolk NR18 – caught on CCTV kicking a cow before pushing her head into a concrete floor and pulling on her tail.
The appalling footage showed Anstey spending 30 minutes trying to “violently” move the collapsed animal at an abattoir in Bridport, Dorset, before abandoning her on a ramp.
He pleaded guilty to causing unnecessary suffering to a cow, failing to record livestock movements and breaching TB disease controls.
Sentence: fined £850 and ordered to pay £2,000 towards prosecution costs.
Update June 2020: we are advised that Graham Anstey is now living at Rowney Farm, Whepstead, Suffolk IP29 4TQ and is keeping horses.
