Denise Piper Reporter from Northern News

The Aucklander who saw the uncovered trailer said it was a "confronting sight - pretty gross". The driver did not appear to be breaking any laws but farming experts say the calves should've been covered for good taste.

Due to a relationship breakdown I am seeking a new home. The situation is far from ideal but I am hoping to start fresh and get back on my own feet. I am not able to buy a new home yet, but this is a possibility again in the near future.

I currently own my home in Marua Hikurangi. I am a solo mom with two young kids under 5 years old. I do have some animals. My hobby is breeding and hand raising parrots which you can see here on Facebook: Christine's Aviaries

I know I am asking a lot but I can only hope for something suitable to pop up for my family and animals until we are back on our feet. Please if you have a empty farm house or rural home available please contact me directly through private message

Thank you 🤞
