Scope of alleged animal cruelty case may grow

Posted: Updated:

First horses, now maybe cats, too.

George Wilson and his wife, Ann Gilbreth, were in court Tuesday. They pleaded not guilty to animal cruelty charges. They allegedly kept horses in their barn for years never letting them outside, destroying their vision. Their hooves were so long they were curling. Police say they found carcasses of other horses in the barn and mounds of manure.

Now, the Shelburne Health Officer tells WCAX News there are multiple cats in the home, which is dilapidated. Authorities are trying to determine if the cats are neglected or abused.

George Wilson worked at WCAX for 35 years. He left in 2006.
