Bundaberg vet has Hendra charges dismissed

THE Bundaberg veterinarian at the centre of a landmark Hendra virus case has had the charge against him dismissed.

Luke Annetts was charged with failing to comply with health and safely duty after a complaint involving potential exposure to Hendra virus risks at a property in South Kolan last year was made.

Dr Annetts was in the Bundaberg Magistrates Court today (October 22) as the case was dismissed after a prosecutor from Workplace Health and Safely failed to show up.

Dr Annetts, who works for Vet Cross, Matthew Morahan from Brisbane and Janine Dwyer from the Gold Coast were the first veterinarians in Queensland to be charged under the Workplace Health and Safety Act for treating a horse with Hendra.
