Natrona County woman pleads not guilty to 61 counts of animal cruelty
A Natrona County woman accused of 61 misdemeanor counts of animal cruelty was in court Friday. Ann Bacus pleaded not guilty to all 61 counts.
Prosecutors said Bacus failed to provide the animals with proper food, drink and protection. She has surrendered ownership of more than 40 animals but not all of them.
The Natrona County prosecutor also said he believes there are still animals on Bacus' property that need to be seized. She denied that.
Bacus and her family declined to comment on the accusations at this time.
