A Lawrence County jury found the woman who once ran the county's animal shelter operation guilty of animal cruelty Friday afternoon.
The jury found Bobbie Jean Taylor, 84, guilty on six of the 15 animal cruelty charges she was facing in Lawrence County.
Taylor told WAAY 31, she wants to appeal the guilty verdict, and this is not going to stop her from saving animals.
Taylor was charged after Moulton police received a video of her allegedly hitting a dog and searched her home in 2015.
Hundreds of dogs and cats were removed from her property, where she had been running the county's animal shelter.
Taylor said, "everything on my property was cared for daily, it was fed, watered, loved and that was better than being on the side of the road dying."
This is Taylor's second time in court on the charges. The judge in the first trial declared a mistrial after witnesses were heard discussing the case in front of jurors.
