Multiple animal cruelty charges, convictions in Havasupai Tribal Court

Since promising last year to make prosecution of animal cruelty-related offenses a top priority, the Havasupai Tribe is reporting that three animal abuse cases in its tribal court have ended in convictions while two more individuals face counts of animal cruelty that were filed in the past month.

Pack animals like horses, mules and donkeys, the majority of which are owned by tribal members, are used to haul tourists’ gear to and from the famous blue-green waterfalls on Havasupai in Grand Canyon. The trail to the campground where most tourists stay is about 10 miles one way.
