    Police v. D. Glenn, cruelty to a bull, i.e. neglecting to provide it with food and water, during a period in which it was kept in confinement.
    Mr. Tanner appeared for the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
    James Lark, of Gembrook, said that on Monday and Tuesday, the 8th and 9th insts., he passed defendant's place, and saw the bull in a crush; saw no sign of either food or water for it there; the weather was fine ; there was no cover over the animal; there was feed in the yard, but none where the bull was; he did not know whether it had been released from the crush between the hours when he went and returned from work; a slight shade might have been obtained from the slaughterhouse, but not much.
    Harriet Carter, of West Beaconsfield, wife of August Carter, the owner of the bull, stated that from what she heard she visited Glenn's on the 9th inst. and saw the bull in the crush, from which it could not get out: it had no shelter except from the wall of the slaughterhouse; at 7 p.m. she again went to accused, and asked him what he intended doing with the bull, and he replied that his intention was to send it home that night; asked him how long it had been in the crush, and he replied "since morning ;" I think I said that the bull had had no food. The bull came home on Wednesday morning at 8 a.m; I put him in the yard and fed him ; he drank three buckets full of water straight of, and two later on in the afternoon; it looked very hollow and seemed to drag its hind legs. I am not sure, but I think it was on Thursday or Friday previous that my husband tied the bull's feet; the animal strayed to Glenn's place.
    James Thomas, residing at Gembrook deposed that he saw the bull on the days in question in a small crush; did not know if it had food or water; there might have been grass in the yard, but he could not see it from where he passed the place.
    Benjamin Smith, laborer, corroborrated last witness's evidence.
    David A. Glenn, sworn, said that the bull had been annoying him for six weeks; spoke to Carter about it, and he promised to repair the fences which the animal got through; Carter repeatedly took the bull from his place; on Sunday night his son brought the cows in for milking and the bull was again with them, and he put it in the yard, instructing his son to take it home on the Monday; he (witness) went from home, and on his return his son told him that the bull was in the potato crop; put the animal in the yard until Tuesday; the gate confining it swung both ways; he did not feed it, but gave it water. To the Bench.—There was no grass in the place where the bull was; but saw it feeding in the yard on Monday.
    The Bench held that the offence was not one of cruelty but neglect, and fined defendant 5/. with £2/9 costs. David Alexander Glenn, James Thomas Margaret Harriet Carter4
