Amy A. Allan
A Stone County woman charged last fall with three counts of animal neglect and two counts of not properly disposing of dead animals has entered an Alford plea.
On October 16th, 2012, Stone County deputies and The Humane Society conducted a raid to rescue animals on Amy A. Allan's property near Cape Fair. When authorities arrived to execute a search warrant, they were informed that a horse had died on the property the night before.

Authorities found three dead horses, ten live horses, fifteen dogs, five cats, a duck and a chicken in the raid. Most of the dogs were kept in cages or chained to makeshift shelters like camper shells.

When Deputy Nathan Boone went to Allan's Puma Ridge property on October 2nd to investigate the death of another horse, he found "several horses running loose on the road and on the property." He also found a horse, "that had been deceased for some time," lying on its side not far from a corral behind Allan's house.

Allan told Boone that the horse had died five days earlier after it became entangled in some fence wire.

An investigator with The Humane Society had been in contact with Allan since March of 2012 and witnessed "a steady decline" of the animals she had in her possession. At one point, Allan moved the animals from Greene County in an effort to thwart investigators.

During the raid, authorities found a dead dog inside Allan's mobile home and found that all the animals on the property "appeared to be underfed and malnourished." 
Johnson said he talked with Allan on several occasions and told her it would take approximately $5,000 a month to properly care for the horses. "She said she could do it," he said.

Allan is scheduled to be sentence on August 20th.
