Couple given probation, face further charges for animal cruelty case

Posted:

A Coryell County couple have managed to escape prison time in a huge animal cruelty case, but could still be facing further charges and civil liabilities.

Curtis C. Moore and Racine Moore were given probation and fines for their connection to a raid on their rural home that netted hundred of animals living in bad conditions 25 miles southwest of Gatesville.

Curtis was given five years probation and a $1,000 fine, and Racine Moore was given two years probation and a $1,000 fine on felony illegal dumping charges.

Even though the felony charges have been dealt with, they still face over 40 misdemeanor counts of animal cruelty and possibly over a $100,000 in civil liabilities in reimbursing the county for expenses in rescuing the animals and cleaning up the mess.

The Houston SPCA rescued 250 dogs, 47 horses, two Bengal tigers, two mountain lions, raccoons and primates from the home. There were an unknown number of birds, lizards, rodents and domestic cats on the property. 

As part of the plea agreement reached in late 2012 and finalized with a formal sentencing Friday, the Moores are barred from buying or selling animals in any form. The plea deal did not cover any of the additional misdemeanor charges.
