Chief inspector calls it quits

Hugh Coghill, who retired as chief inspector of the Ontario SPCA in the fall, may be missed in the agricultural world.

Coghill, who had held the post since 2006, understood agriculture, says Ontario Farm Animal Council executive director Crystal Mackay. When Coghill ran a three-week training session for new inspectors last summer a full five days was spent dealing with livestock. Mackay points out that only 10 per cent of calls to the Ontario SPCA (OSPCA) across the province are on farm animals.
