Owners of the now defunct Wally’s\nPiggery at Murrumbateman plan to fight all charges of animal cruelty related to a raid&nbsp;last year. Valent (Wally) Perenc, 64, Stephanie\nPerenc, 58, and their financial backer WSL Investments Pty Ltd, have entered\npleas of not guilty to a total of 53 charges of aggravated animal cruelty,\nfailing to provide veterinary treatment or failing to comply with industry\nregulations. The couple did not appear in Yass Local Court\ntoday but were represented through Canberra\nlawyer Richard Thomas. The charges relate to a raid on the\nMurrumbateman property in August 2012&nbsp;by Yass police, the NSW Food Authority, RSPCA\nand the Department of Primary Industries. The joint investigation was sparked when\ngraphic online footage allegedly showed piggery workers kicking and tossing\npiglets and beating sows, buckets of dead piglets and sows with open untreated\nsores. Animal welfare activists Animal\nLiberation NSW said they had secretly filmed the footage over three months last\nyear before publishing it online and contacting authorities. Wally's Piggery and a connected\nbusiness, Tennessee Piggery, near Young, closed earlier this year amid public\nfurore over the footage. The couple will appear before court for\na hearing on December 3.
