CLARK COUNTY (WKOW) -- Wisconsin agricultural officials say the state has reached a settlement with a Clark County farmer accused of slaughtering a cow without a license.
The state claimed Arlin Bender slaughtered a farmer's injured cow last July in return for cash and the animal's hide. State investigators accused Bender of operating a meat processing operation at his home.
The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection(DATCAP) says under terms of the settlement, Bender will pay more than $500 in civil forfeitures.
DATCAP spokesman Jim Dick told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel a temporary court injunction bars Bender from slaughtering livestock until he gets a proper license.
