TORRINGTON, Wyo. — A former Morrill County rancher convicted in perhaps the worst horse abuse case in western Nebraska is back in jail.

Goshen County authorities arrested Jason Meduna, 46, for parole violation. The man, convicted in January 2010 on 145 counts of cruel neglect of an animal and ordered not to possess any animals for a period of 30 years, had been found by a probation official to be in possession of animals, including horses, Capt. Bryan Morehouse, of the Goshen County Sheriff’s Department told the Star-Herald.

Most of them are here because law enforcement removed them from their previous owner. Our ability to rehabilitate and rehome them comes from the financial support of people like you.
