    A Hardwick, Vermont, woman has pleaded not guilty to 15 counts of animal cruelty accusing her of failing to provide adequate food and water to her livestock and dogs.

    Forty-eight-year-old Kelly Frost was arraigned on Monday.

    Hardwick police seized three horses, five sheep, three goats and four dogs after executing a search warrant at a Hopkins Hill property late last month.

    A police affidavit says law enforcement was contacted about the animals by the president of the Vermont Animal Control Association and a humane agent and animal control officer of Barre and four other towns.

    The Caledonian Record (http://bit.ly/1FxJLPZ ) reports that Frost says the allegations are "hooey" and is demanding that the court return her animals "unharmed, unmolested, unmedicated and un-micro-chipped."
