The 27 year old faces eight animal cruelty charges. He appeared in court on Thursday morning and his next appearance isn't scheduled until July 20th.

The Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals laid charges against him on Feb. 17 following the inspection of a hog operation at 990 Norfolk Road 28 in Langton.

During the inspection, 1,265 pigs were discovered dead in a flooded, manure-filled barn. The OSPCA says the animals had no access to food. For humane reasons, an additional 250 pigs were euthanized on site.
