Hi first time posting here.

My sister has an issue with someone that she let put some animals on her property

At the time it was suppose to be only 3 Alpaca’s and this was during winter when there was lots of grass to eat.

The guy turned up with 7 and and dispite all requests over many months has refused to remove the animals that have now eaten every thing in sigh, to the point she is now having to buy food for them which this guy refuses to reimburse her for or to buy food for the animals.

She has contacted the RSPCA who have told her as they are on her land she must provide for them or she could be prosecuted for animal cruelty.

What is the process to force him to remove his animals or what else can she do to get this pest to take these animals or to get them of her property.

forms or letter templates?

Thanks in advance.

She probably needs a court order to force the owner of the animals to remove them. She should see a solicitor to start the process.

Nah call the council. Tell them the animals aren't yours and you want them removed. You gave permission to put 3 there but the other 4 are unwanted. And you can give council the other 3 if they have outstayed their welcome. Give council the name of the owner and let them contact the owner.

Hi Hawkie,

It was a kind gesture by your sister to permit someone to put animals on her property for a temporary period. As mentioned in your post, your sister has taken measures by requesting the guy to remove the animals from her property but it appears that he is not serious despite the number of request to remove.

The animals were placed with your sister’s consent but now the consent has been withdrawn by your sister by requesting the guy to remove the animals. We will need more information and facts to determine if the guy is liable for trespass against property.

If the animals still have not been removed from the property, please get in contact us with immediately and we can try and resolve the problem.

Should you wish to discuss this matter further, please feel free to contact us via email on, via phone on (03) 8564 8474 or visit our website at
