Paget pig owner charged

A Paget man has been charged with three offences relating to the pigs he keeps on his property.

Daniel Heaven, 39, denied having two pigs without a licence, causing a nuisance as the keeper of pigs and failing to put an end to the nuisance when he appeared in Magistrates' Court this morning.

Residents have complained of foul odours, noise and mosquitos arising from Mr Heaven's pigs, said prosecutor Cindy Clarke.

Ms Clarke indicated the case would “not be hard to prove”, and that the maximum penalty for such pig-related offences carries a fine of $4,000.

Senior Magistrate Archibald Warner released Mr Heaven on $1,000 bail.

He is to be tried on April 10.
