LONGVIEW,TX (KLTV)- An east Texas probation officer is being put on probation on charges of animal cruelty . 51 year old Kimberly Gale Kibbe was dismissed from her position with Gregg county with probation and a $5-hundred dollar fine for animal cruelty. Charges were filed last week after Kibbe failed to care for seven cats and five dogs at a Longview home. In October officers reported finding dead kittens, a dead rabbit and a large amount of fecal matter inside. The rescued animals are now in the care of the northeast Texas humane society.
