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.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.

  • ADEQ denies C&H Hog Farm permit

    The Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality has denied a new permit for the C&H Hog Farms' concentrated animal feeding operation near Mount Judea (Newton County). This is a big and somewhat surprising victory for critics who have viewed C&H's large-scale pig farm and the pig waste it generates as an existential threat to the Buffalo National River.
