Man Reaches Plea Deal on Animal Abuse Charges

A man in western Wisconsin has been sentenced to probation on animal abuse charges after 26 cows were found dead on his farm.

John Nelson was arrested in September after a tip led authorities to search his Rice Lake property. Investigators say they found the decomposed cows still chained in their manure-filled stalls.

WQOW-TV reports Nelson's felony charges were reduced to misdemeanors Tuesday in a deal with prosecutors. He was sentenced to probation and 30 hours of community service. A judge also ordered him to refrain from owning any more livestock.
