TUCSON, Ariz. — An Arizona man has pleaded guilty to a felony animal
cruelty charge after emaciated animals were discovered on his property.
The Pima County Sheriff’s Department says 62-year-old Dennis Woblick is set to
be sentenced next month.
The charges stem from the discovery last summer of two severely emaciated
horses and one dog after deputies issued a warrant to search Woblick’s property.
At the time, Woblick owned three horses and three dogs.
The horses were sent to Healing Hearts Rescue and Refuge in the Wilcox area and
the dogs were rescued by the Pima Animal Care Center.
Authorities say the horses have since been rehabilitated and the dogs were
adopted through the animal shelter.
