Cow rescuer took on 'far too much' as 190-strong herd costs spiralled

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Northern Outlook

A sanctuary set up to save cows from slaughter has needed its own rescue after five malnourished animals had to be put down and dozens more rehomed.

Jasmine Hubber established Til the Cows Come Home in North Canterbury three years ago when she was just 17. However, she has conceded she took on “taken on far too much” after the Ministry for Primary Industries and another animal charity stepped in.

She called in HUHANZ (Helping You Help Animals) five weeks ago to help with the $28,000 on veterinary bills and feed for the cows.

HUHA co-founder Carolyn Press-McKenzie said work has been under way to de-horn and castrate the cows, restore their health and find them new homes.
