Woman In Cruelty Case Says Someone Poisoned Horse

Posted: Updated:

HOWELL, Mich. (AP) - A Livingston County woman who was convicted of animal cruelty in the death of one horse and the care of two other horses says the animal that died must have been poisoned by someone else.

Velva Wainscott of Cohoctah Township reportedly made the comments during her sentencing hearing. On Wednesday she received two years of probation and was ordered not to own animals except for her dog.

Livingston County Animal Control officers went to Wainscott's farm Jan. 12 after a 911 caller reported seeing a dead horse. Witnesses testified that water for Wainscott's horses was frozen and their hay was filled with feces and urine, making it inedible.

Wainscott testified that her horses had adequate water and feed.
