A Eudora man is being held in jail on allegations of animal cruelty. 44-year-old John Steffen was arrested this afternoon.
A Lawrence Humane Society official says the case involves a pony that had been severely neglected. The official says the animal's hooves were extremely overgrown to the point the pony could barely walk.
A veterinairian was able to save her. She's now in foster care, pending the outcome of the case.
