Rancher found guilty of animal cruelty

On Friday, the rancher on trial for animal cruelty involving a herd of cows was found guilty of five counts of misdemeanor animal cruelty.. As noted in the prior post on the case, he had been charged with over 120 counts, including five felony counts. The rancher's attorney said he was somewhat satisfied that the jury didn't convict on more serious crimes. The judge had ruled that the jury would not be shown any pictures or video of the conditions of the cows.
