Mapleton woman who dumped dead dogs gets more probation
GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) -
A 49-year-old Iowa woman has been given nine years of probation in Nebraska because she violated terms of an earlier probation sentence by living with dogs.
The Grand Island Independent reports that Denise Withee, of Mapleton, Iowa, was sentenced on Thursday. Her new sentence also includes a provision that bars her from owning or living with any animals.
Withee had been on probation for dumping 23 dead or dying dogs in a Nebraska cornfield in 2008. She has admitted that she violated probation by living with 13 dogs at the Iowa home she shares with her mother. Iowa authorities discovered the dogs in January.
Withee's attorney, Vicki Kenney, says Withee fits the description of an animal hoarder and described her as "an addict of animals."
