Animal abuser pleads guilty in Upshur Co. court

GILMER (KYTX) -- Anthony George Bassler of Ore City pleaded guilty Friday on two charges of cruelty to livestock animals.

The 36-year-old was accused of not feeding two animals on his property in June of 2012. Investigators said he'd also hung another donkey from a tree on his property, killing the animal.

Bassler's plea was in exchange for 18 months in a State Jail facility. In September of 2009 he pleaded guilty to a similar animal cruelty charge.
