At Friday's hearing, Judge Waldemar Senyk sentenced Bauck on one count of torture, which he said encompassed the other charges. In addition to serving the 20-day jail sentence, Bauck must pay a $500 fine and allow visits from humane society officials at the New York Mills breeding facility now owned by Bauck's husband and daughter.

Bauck had previously been cleared by a jury of two felony counts of cruelty to animals.
