(Fremont County, WY) – Dubois man Cole Littlewhiteman, 34, who faces three counts of cruelty to animal felony charges for an alleged July 27th incident, pled “not guilty” to all charges at his August 31st arraignment hearing.

Littlewhiteman faces these felony charges after law enforcement obtained video footage of him reportedly committing multiple acts of animal cruelty to a horse, which included kicking, punching, tasing and whipping of the animal.

The arraignment was presided over by the honorable Judge Marvin Tyler, who informed Littlewhiteman that a pre-trial conference and jury trial would be scheduled in the coming days, as the court prepares a case management order.

Littlewhiteman is currently out on bond as he awaits further trial.

County 10 will provide more information on the case as it becomes available, which can be found here.
