John Francis Feeney, from Cherry Drive in Eglinton is charged with "being the keeper of a cow, allowed the cow to wander or lay down on the side of the road contrary to Article 93(2) of the Roads Northern Ireland Order, 1993".

It is alleged the incident took place in the townland of Tamnaherin on 20 October 2013.

The 31-year-old's solicitor Seamus Quigley, told District Judge Eamon King at the magistrates' court in Derry that his client would be denying the charge.

The case was adjourned for one month to enable a trial date to be fixed.

Good to see Limavady PSNI taking a proactive approach to wandering animals. Wandering animals are one of the causes for a lot of Killed and Seriously Injured Road Traffic Collisions in Northern Iteland. Article 93 is not used enough.
