1 comment

Rangi Waaka, of Hairini, who is accused of being the carer of a bull mastiff-cross that had a significant surgical procedure performed on it after it suffered a crushed paw, has been back in court.

Waaka, 61, appearing in the Tauranga Registrar's Court yesterday, also faced charges of reckless ill-treatment and failing to ensure the animal received veterinary treatment.

He was remanded until May 1.
