Dog hoarder appears before Yakima judge

YAKIMA, Wash. -- The woman charged with animal cruelty and hoarding animals appeared before a Yakima judge Thursday.

The judge in the case entered a not guilty plea on behalf of Evelyn Dauenhauer.

She faces charges that include 10 counts of animal cruelty, nine counts of owning a pitbull, and two charges for not having a pet license.

KIMA had the only cameras rolling as law enforcement officers raided her property last month.

Dauenhauer faces up to 11 years in jail if convicted on all charges.
