JACKSON, MO (KFVS) -

Four days after Missouri's attorney general makes a move to take animals out of Jackson's Safe Harbor Animal Shelter, he withdraws the motion.

A spokeswoman for Chris Koster said the judge asked him to pull it, instead there will be a mediation hearing on the status of the shelter on April 22.

Koster said on Monday he wanted the remaining animals removed, citing a substantial risk to their health and welfare.

The shelter's director, Alice Wybert, faces two misdemeanor counts of animal abuse.

She will be back in court at the end of the month.
