Bedford County Woman Facing Animal Abuse Charges

Animal AbuseA team of veterinarians in Bedford County have been evaluating approximately 100 animals, mostly dogs after their owner was accused of abuse.
Kellie Williams has been charged with one count of animal abuse, said director Jack Cooper of Bedford County Animal Control.
Officials identified her as Williams but said she is also known as Kellie Williams Grunder, and real estate records show the property listed by that name.
Bedford County deputies and animal control workers discovered many mixed-breed dogs chained or in kennels and cages on the property, many were filled with feces, mud and trash, and had little or no shelter.
Shelbyville Animal Control is also involved in the operation.
Supplies and support for the emergency shelter are being provided by the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration and PetSmart Charities. (News source Shelbyville Times-Gazette)
