Kansas Horse Owner Faces Animal Cruelty Charges

HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) _ A south-central Kansas woman faces a new animal cruelty charge after three dead horses were found on her property and 10 others were rescued.

The Hutchinson News (http://bit.ly/10FN8xK ) reports that sixty-one-year-old Lindasue Adams already was awaiting trial on two animal cruelty charges alleging she failed to care for her horses in 2009 and 2011.

The latest animal cruelty charge was filed after officers went to her property last month.

Adams is supposed to have only four horses because she has four acres. And a civil lawsuit seeking to limit her to four horses already had been filed. Now, Reno County Counselor Joe O'Sullivan is asking a judge to prohibit her from owning horses. He says Adams has the ``best of intentions'' but has no means of caring for the horses.
