*1 Judie Hansen petitions for review of a final decision of the Secretary of the United States Department of Agriculture. Because we have no jurisdiction over the matter, we dismiss the petition.
On March 15, 1999, the Secretary denied Hansen's motion for reconsideration of a prior decision finding that she had committed various violations of the Animal Welfare Act and related regulations and standards, and assessing penalties. Hansen filed her petition for review in this court on June 22, 1999, well after the sixty-day time limit for filing such a petition. See 7 U.S.C. § 2149(c). This time limit is mandatory and jurisdictional, and therefore we lack jurisdiction to hear her untimely appeal. See United States Dep't of Agric. v. Kelly, 38 F.3d 999, 1003 (8th Cir.1994) (timeliness of appeal from administrative order is jurisdictional requirement that cannot be modified or waived).
Accordingly, we dismiss Hansen's petition.
