Good Afternoon

My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand this is not legal advise Please understand this is not legal advise but a guide to assist you.

They cannot hold them. If they do it is equal to stealing and she can call the police.

They can seek a court order stopping her form taking the animals if she does not pay the fees.

But because there is no agreement she has a right to take them.

She has to be careful because if she enters their land without their consent she can be trespassing and they can charge her with that as well.

The law is on her side for the animals but to avoid costly legal proceedings she is best to pay the fees and take her animals.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If there is nothing further
