OSSIPEE, N. H. – A judge has a woman guilty of 10 animal cruelty charges after 84 dogs were seized from her New Hampshire home.
The dogs were taken from Christina Fay in June. The authorities said the animals in the dirt and the suffering of health problems. Fay pleaded not guilty.
Fay was initially charged with 12 felony counts; Judge Charles Greenhalgh dismissed the last two months. In his ruling Tuesday, he found the evidence showed Fay not the proper care or shelter for dogs.
Fay testified during her recent trial for Greenhalgh that she took good care of the animals.
The authorities claim that Fay robbed the dogs of the medical treatment and fed them maggot-infested food.
Its lawyers not immediately return a call seeking comment.
