Conviction of animal cruelty reported in puppy mill case

Posted By on Thu, Sep 17, 2015 at 10:44 AM


The Humane Society of the United States says that a woman in Randolph County has been convicted of animal cruelty related to the rescue of 46 dogs and 11 cats and chickens from a suspected puppy mill in Warm Springs.

According to a Humane Society release, Sandra Croney was convicted on six counts and ordered to pay $5,000 restitution to the Humane Society. The conviction includes a one-year ban on animal ownership by Croney, except for two she currently owns and they must be spayed or neutered. She is forbidden from operating a puppy mill business. The verdict was handed down Wednesday in district court in Pocahontas.

The release went on:

Melanie Kahn, senior director of The HSUS’ Puppy Mills Campaign, said: “Arkansas is one of the most problematic puppy mill states in the country since there are no state laws to protect dogs in commercial breeding facilities. We’re so grateful to the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office and prosecutor Joseph Grider for their diligent work to see this case through.”

The Humane Society found the dogs, mostly Great Pyrenees, in February and released the video taken on the property. Croney had been involved in an earlier animal abuse case.

  • 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.
