Alberta woman at centre of animal cruelty case arrested in Manitoba

An Alberta woman at the centre of an animal cruelty investigation has been arrested by RCMP in Winnipeg, police told Global News on Friday.

April Irving was charged with animal cruelty and neglect after 201 emaciated dogs were seized from a property in Milk River in January 2015.

The seizure came after Irving voluntarily surrendered 16 dogs to the SPCA a month before.
