A former veterinarian, who is facing dozens of animal cruelty charges, has been banned from being near animals.
KOB Eyewitness News 4’s media partners at The Santa Fe New Mexican report that a district judge issued a restraining order on Debra Clopton.
Under the restraining order she has to be at least 25 yards from dogs and cannot have any animal in her possession that could be considered a pet.
The order lasts until her trial.
A pre-trial conference is scheduled for March.
