Civil case filed in horse neglect in Hutchinson


HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) — A Hutchinson woman already serving a year’s probation for neglecting more than two dozen horses is now facing a civil nuisance lawsuit.

Sixty-one-year-old Lindasue Adams pleaded no contest in July to two counts of animal cruelty for neglecting more than a dozen horses.

County Counselor Joe O’Sullivan told county commissioners a civil nuisance case against Adams is scheduled for trial later this month.

O’Sullivan says the lawsuit contends that because Adams’ suffering horses were visible from the roadway, the situation created a public nuisance. Several people called law enforcement and others stopped to feed the horses. Because Adams has a pattern of neglecting horses, the county will ask that she be prohibited for life from owning horses.

The Hutchinson News reports ( ) the trial is scheduled for Aug. 29.
