Jury convicts Salem woman of animal neglect



SALEM, Ore. (AP) — A Marion County jury has convicted a Salem woman of animal neglect after the authorities discovered 16 skinny horses on her property.

Gabriel Elle Denison Buckner is scheduled to be sentenced May 3.

Sheriff’s deputies found the emaciated and diseased horses during a visit to the property last year.

At the time of her Marion County arrest, Buckner was on probation for attempted animal neglect in Deschutes County.

She also was convicted of animal neglect in 1998 involving dogs and cats.
