Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine
964. To ask the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine if he will address an animal welfare issue (details supplied) in County Limerick; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [3569/20]
Following reports from the public, the case referred to by the Deputy was investigated by officers of my Department. Despite weather conditions not being ideal, a veterinary examination of the animals did not disclose concerns regarding their welfare.
Any further information made available to my Department through the Animal Welfare Helpline will, of course, be investigated.
