Kirkpatrick found guilty in animal abuse case

Former veterinarian Elisa Kirkpatrick was found guilty Friday of aggravated animal cruelty, a class 4 felony.

She’s a former Williamson County, Illinois, veterinarian who was charged with multiple counts of animal cruelty and practicing without a license.

Kirkpatrick was also found guilty of four misdemeanors for practicing medicine without a license, one for animal cruelty, and five counts of owners duties —meaning she didn’t take proper care of the animals in her home.

Local 6’s Blake Stevens will have more on the verdict on Local 6 at Five.
