A woman from Cape Fair who was charged with two counts of animal abuse or neglect last month is facing new charges after investigator's found dead animals on the woman's property.

Amy Allan, 50, first appeared on the radar of authorities in July after neighbor's in Rogersville complained that she had been neglecting her horses and dogs for years.

The Stone County Sheriff's office and The Human Society launched an investigation after Allan moved the animals to 485 Puma Ridge in Stone County.

Authorities were called to the Puma Ridge address on October 2nd to investigate the death of a horse.  When Deputy Nathan Boone arrived, 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.

Investigator's also found a dead dog in the search of the property and noted that all the animals on the property "appeared to be underfed and malnourished."

Allan told investigator's that she did not have "any hay for her horses and had a difficult time feeding all the animals on a regular basis."

Allan was released from the Stone County jail after posting $5,000 bond.  A condition of her bond states she cannot have more than two horses in her possession.

She is due back in court on October 23rd.
