Robert Park, 54, and his 57-year-old wife Linda Park, both from Bridge Farm, near Aspatria, are accused of breaking the order on January 5.

At Carlisle Magistrates’ Court, prosecutor Jane Mackrill confirmed that the their trial was likely to last three or four hours.

The defendants were represented by barrister Keith Thomas.

The date for the trial was set for May 9. In previous court hearings, Linda Park was referred to as Linda Faulder-Park. Both defendants were granted bail.

The ban on keeping animals was imposed last November after a hearing before magistrates relating to the couple’s treatment of dogs, cats, and various farm animals.
