Woman sentenced to three years for animal cruelty

A 58-year-old woman will spend three years in prison for 22 counts of animal cruelty.

More than 60 animals were seized from Valerie Harris' farm in Boone in 2012.

Our partners at the Pueblo Chieftain report animal control officers found nearly 30 horses, donkeys and mules, and more than 30 dogs.
Officers obtained a warrant after viewing a dead horse on her property.

Harris was arrested again a few weeks later after a neighbor reported seeing more dead horses on his property and on hers.
