HUNTINGTON, TX (KTRE) -

A Huntington woman wanted on an animal cruelty charge has turned herself in to authorities. County prosecutors determined the future of the animals in a hearing on Thursday.

Brandy Lynn Pruett, 29, turned herself in on Friday, according to Angelina County Jail records.

Huntington Police photos taken last week show a horse and five dogs in poor health.

In Justice of the Peace Bradley Stringer's courthouse, County Attorney Ed Jones told Stringer about what to do with the animals.

Three of the dogs will be turned over to the Angelina County animal shelter, while family members will have one of the other dogs and Pruett will get to keep one of the other dogs.

Pruett and the family will get to keep the dogs provided that animal control can do regular inspections of their health and the dogs are taken to a veterinarian within seven days.

The horse will go to auction.

"I'd like for them to be able to tell my 9-year-old why his horse is gone because I still haven't told him," Pruett told family members. "I can't tell him."

Stringer agreed to the conditions.

Pruett is charged with cruelty to non-livestock animals and cruelty to livestock animals, both misdemeanors. Her criminal case is pending in county court.
