LYNDON, Vt. (AP) - The owner of a horse farm in northern Vermont has been convicted of animal cruelty.

A jury this week found Bruce Bona of Lyndon guilty of 17 counts of animal cruelty.

Bona, who represented himself at trial, pleaded not guilty in May after police said they found dead and emaciated horses on his property in March. A judge ordered the forfeiture of 21 horses found at the ranch on July 8.

The Caledonian Record reports the 64-year-old Bona now faces up to a year in prison and a $1,000 fine on each of the 17 convictions.
