Nebraska rancher now facing 149 animal cruelty counts

BRIDGEPORT, Neb. (AP)--Morrill County Attorney Jean Rhodes has filed an amended complaint against a western Nebraska rancher, charging him with 149 felony counts of abandonment and cruel animal neglect resulting in injury or death.

Jason Meduna was scheduled to be in a Bridgeport courtroom May 20 for his arraignment.

Authorities last month found many of the 200 horses and several burros on the 3-Strikes Ranch emaciated and suffering from overgrown hooves and other ailments. Nearly 75 dead horses and burros have been documented.

The ranch had been a sanctuary for wild horses adopted by the Bureau of Land Management. Meduna adopted horses and burros and also cared for animals owned by other rescue organizations and private individuals.
