A veterinarian says a horse on an Alberta woman’s property had a hole in its head from an infection.

Patricia Moore, 39, is charged under the province’s Animal Protection Act.

About a year ago, Mounties raided a home near Carrot Creek and found dogs, rabbits, horses and pigs living in distress.

A local veterinarian testified Thursday that the horse’s head was so infected it caused a hole in its head.

The veterinarian also testified that rabbits and pigs were living on several inch-thick layers of excrement.

There was very little food and water when police searched the property.

Moore is representing herself at her trial this week.
