ST. HELENS, Ore. (AP) - Two Columbia County cattle ranchers convicted of animal neglect were fined $107,000.

William Holdner and Jane Baum were convicted in October and sentenced Friday to five years’ probation and the fine. They also are banned from owning livestock.

The Oregonian reports (https://is.gd/VIQF2E ) 170 cattle were rescued two years ago after an investigation by deputies and the Oregon Humane Society found many of them were malnourished and suffering from eye diseases and other illnesses.
