A Hanna area woman has been found guilty of animal cruelty following the seizure of several malnourished horses, dogs and birds from her property.

Catherine Adams was convicted after the animals were discovered near Hanna in 2015.

The judge has ordered a pre-sentence report before deciding on her punishment.

Similar charges against Adams' mother, Karin, were dismissed.

In 2014, both women were banned in British Columbia from owning animals after dozens of horses, dogs, birds, cats and fish were seized from a property in Houston.
