Wheatland Dog Breeder Pleads Not Guilty to Animal Neglect Charges

Posted: Updated:

A Wheatland, North Dakota, dog breeder pleaded not guilty to six counts of animal neglect in Cass County Court Tuesday morning. 

Darcy Smith was charged after Cass County deputies discovered at least 170 dogs on his property in poor conditions. He is charged with depriving an animal of necessary food and water.

Smith waived his rights to the animals. They have since been adopted out to area families.

Smith was also granted a public defender and the judge ordered a personal recognizance bond.
