Judge takes away accused abuser's animals

Dozens of animals that investigators say were starved by a Presque Isle County woman are being taken away from her.

Christine Thompson is charged with cruelty to 10 or more animals.

Sheriff's Officials say 33 horses, 5 dogs and 3 pigs were found hungry and malnourished at Hawks Farm.

Today, a judge ruled she must give up all animals. Those animals are now in the custody of the Presque Isle Sheriff's Office and they need homes.

Thompson faces up to 4 years in prison if convicted on all charges.
