A Pottawatomie County woman charged with animal cruelty after starving horses were allegedly rescued from her ranch in 2016 is back in jail after being arrested on a warrant for failing to appear in court.

Christina D. Weisner, 46, was charged last year in Pottawatomie County District Court with a single animal cruelty count in the case.

When she failed to appear in court earlier this year, her previous bond amount was forfeited and a $100,000 bench warrant was issued in July. Court records show she was arrested Aug. 15 and she remained jailed Wednesday night in the Pottawatomie County Public Safety Center.

Her case was on Wednesday's felony docket before District Judge John Canavan. Weisner asked for a reduction in her bond amount, which was granted and set at $10,000. The animal cruelty case and another unrelated drug case are now set for the disposition docket on Oct. 24.

The animal cruelty charge came after Pottawatomie County Sheriff’s Deputies, with the help of Blaze’s Tribute Equine Rescue Inc., served a search warrant March 18, 2016 at Weisner’s home on Maple Leaf Circle.

Deputies found three dead horses on the property and nine others were rescued that day. One didn’t survive, but the remaining horses were taken for rehabilitation at the rescue operation in Jones. Since then, many have been rehabilitated and adopted.
