Holden switches to guilty plea in campfire animal endangerment case

She was arrested on July 7, 2012, after the burnt remains of a kennel and a small dog were found in a fire pit near a trailer she was occupying.  

Initial police reports suggested the woman was likely intoxicated and angry following an argument with a partner, who had left the site before investigating officers arrived. 

RCMP also concluded from witness accounts that a second dog suffered serious enough injuries that it too did not likely survive. 

A date for her sentencing will be set Monday.
