PUEBLO — A 57-year-old woman has been convicted of 22 counts of animal cruelty after authorities seized more than 60 animals from her farm east of Pueblo.

The Pueblo Chieftain reports (http://bit.ly/1heEqBy ) Valerie Christine Harris, of Boone, was convicted Tuesday of seven counts of aggravated animal cruelty and 15 lesser counts of animal cruelty.

Animal control officers raided her farm in January 2012 and seized nearly 30 horses and more than 30 dogs.

Officers obtained a warrant after viewing a dead horse on her property. Harris was arrested again a few weeks later after a neighbor reported seeing more dead horses on his property and on hers.
