    A 48 year old woman from Heatherton will be back in court next week to answer to 44 counts of animal cruelty. RCMP Cpl Jolene Garland says charges were first laid against Michelle Young last April when a number of goats were found deceased. Garland says veterinarians from the Department of Fish, Food and Agriculture, assisted in the investigation. Garland says there were also live animals on the farm, which were undernourished and had been lacking footcare to the point they could barely walk.
