REDDING, Conn. -- A state Superior Court judge ruled a Redding woman facing animal cruelty charges would not get her horses back, according to newstimes.com.
Lisa Lind-Larsen, 75, was arrested in July when animal control agents found two horses on her property that were badly emaciated, covered in fly bites and living in several inches of their own feces, newstimes.com reported.
As a result of the ruling, the animals will be paced under the permanent care of the state Department of Agriculture, newstimes.com said.
Lind-Larsen attempted to enter an accelerated rehabilitation program but her request was denied by the judge.
The two mustangs are still at the Department of Agriculture's animal facility in Niantic and are gaining weight and recovering, newstimes.com said.
