The article discusses a court case which resulted in the granting of New Zealand High Court declarations after the invalid appointment of an animal inspector under the Animal Welfare Act 1999. The case revolves around the inspection made by animal inspector Kevin Byrnes to the farms of Tony Lauren Farming after discovering a number of dead animals on the hill block. However, the issue was that Byrnes was never validly appointed as an animal inspector for the purposes of the Animal Welfare Act.
