HUNTINGTON, TX (KTRE) -

Police are looking for a Huntington woman accused of abusing her animals.

Investigators say they confiscated a horse and five dogs from Brandy Pruett's Kansas Street property in Huntington.

Police officer Kelli Sanders said they had been watching the animals for months and had confronted Pruett before about the abuse. Sanders said the animals were improving at one point, but when they went to check on them again a few days ago, they were in poor condition.

The animals were apparently emaciated and the horse was very sick.

The dogs have been taken to Kurth Memorial Animal Shelter in Lufkin. The horse is in the custody of the Angelina County stockman.

Officers said they haven't been able to contact Pruett.  She's wanted on two counts of animal cruelty. They are misdemeanor charges.
