FOX 8 Defenders: Trial continues in case of Lafourche animal cruelty

Thibodaux, La. - The trial of a Lafourche Parish man facing animal cruelty charges and charges he violated the parish noise ordinance continues Wednesday in Thibodaux.

Chris Michot's trial enters day two in Thibodaux this afternoon.

It's a case the FOX 8 Defenders exposed and have followed since last year.

Michot has dozens of dogs on his property, and his neighbors say the barking is nonstop.

The Humane Society has also expressed concern for the health and welfare of dogs that were seen chained with no food or water nearby and dirty kennels.

Several Lafourche Parish sheriff's deputies testified Tuesday about details spelled out in police reports after dozens of calls out to the Michot property.

The trial resumes in Thibodaux at 1:30 p.m.
