160 Dogs Taken For Animal Abuse Headed Back To Breeder
The Humane Society of Pulaski County is preparing to return more than 160 dogs to their breeder after an order from an Arkansas judge.
A Lonoke County judge ordered the animals returned by Wednesday. The two-year legal battle made its way to the Arkansas Supreme Court, which ruled earlier this year it didn't have jurisdiction in the case.
The humane society took the dogs in 2012 from breeder Sandra Nance on allegations of animal cruelty. Nance won the dogs back in May on appeal. Her attorney says she is "very comforted to know that the dogs will finally be freed."
A humane society board member called the return of the animals "unsettling." She says humane society workers "are not sure what will happen to them."
