The Dalhart Texan has closely followed the animal cruelty case involving Karrie Calfy Arroyo from January 15, 2013. Over 80 starving, injured and ill animals were surrendered from her home on Conlen, a few days later the Dallam County Sheriff’s Office seized seven severely malnourished horses following the Potter County case in which 32 dogs were surrendered in late December 2012.
