An East Texas man was indicted on Thursday on animal cruelty charges, after deputies made a very unusual discovery on his property.
Anthony Bassler, 35, of Ore City, was indicted by an Upshur County Grand Jury.
Back in July, police found a dead donkey hanging from a tree along with two other malnourished animals.
Officials with the Upshur County Sheriff's Office say it appeared Bassler tortured the animals.
Bassler was also arrested in 2009 for cruelty to animals.
