Horse cruelty case set for trial Dec. 3 in Fulton County

Posted By on Mon, Nov 4, 2013 at 8:48 AM


An animal-cruelty case involving more than 100 malnourished and diseased horses is scheduled for trial Dec. 3 in Fulton Circuit Court in Salem, nearly three years after the alleged cruelty was discovered.

There’s been talk that prosecutors would drop the case, and a pre-trial hearing is scheduled for Nov. 14. A motion to dismiss could be filed at that time. But Prosecuting Attorney Don McSpadden of Batesville told the Arkansas Times Friday that he planned to try the case himself on Dec. 3.

Rodney Kankey of Viola is charged with 118 counts of animal cruelty. The Humane Society of the United States, the ASPCA and the Fulton County sheriff’s office were involved in the investigation.
