Court hearing set regarding health of animals

Fannin County – A Fannin County woman is to appear in court Thursday on allegations of animal mistreatment.

In August, Ector resident Kim Dotson had dozens of horses and donkeys seized from her property and turned over to the Humane Society.

Dotson was allowed to keep six healthy horses but supposed to keep them in good condition. But last week, Bells Police found two of those horses in worse condition - thin and emaciated - and seized those as well.

At the request of Dotson's lawyer, a trial by jury was set for Thursday morning at the Grayson County Justice Center.
