She should have to serve her year in jail. She may not have murdered a person, but she did cause the death of three living creatures by neglecting to properly care for them. The county just wants their money, I guess.

"The court also ruled that she cannot own another companion animal."

She shouldn't be able to own any kind of animal. Should also have been made to do community service instead of getting totally off the hook.$3600 probably didn't cover the cost of the police, SPCA and animal rescue services.

Maybe now Mr. Pfeifer will appear since he knows he'll probably get off without jail time, too.

Since: Nov 08

I'd be checking all those plastic bags for parts of Mr. Pfeifer. Or she pulled a "Fried Green Tomatoes" and made dog food out of him. Just saying. This lady looks creepy. I like the hat though.

Wow so you can go around and kill animals for no reason and receive no jail time. So what if Mr. Loony is the one in that bag does that mean she dont have to service time? I wouldnt trust this woman with a pencil. Maybe she used the dog's brain as a transplant for her mental ability. Anyone that abuse a innconcent animal should never be aloud outside to see daylight again. This world is pitiful we have no laws. She should be made to work at a SPCA everyday cleaning poop with no scooper for the remainder of her pitiful life and with Mr. Loony. Just sad ... goes to show what this world has come to and those so called people that suppose to protect. Maybe she will get one of their dogs. Loser's

To "Just Thinking's" comment: I couldn't have said it any better. Would love to have been the judge.

were any mental health issues raised as part of her defense? I have seen cases where "animal hoarding" was considered a symptom of dementia. I also know of a farmer who chose not to slaughter his last herd of beef cattle. He simply fed them and grazed them until they died of old age on his farm. He was investigated for cruelty, but the veterinarian concluded most of the animals were pretty old, and there was no evidence of any malnourishmnet, other than the bones from the catlle who died in the wooded area of his farm.

She shouldn't have received one day off that jail sentence. She did this horrendous crime, ahe should do the time.

In addition, this kind of animal cruelty should be classified a felony, not merely a misdemeanor.

And how much time did Michael Vick receive? Wow, what a justice system.

Amen, Ridiculous that just goes to show how this world works. Vick gets a year and his career is ruin and these quacks get a little fine and slap on the hand. Sounds to me like the courts, etc must be related to the clowns.

Hmmm, dead dogs and dog parts in bags? Missing husband...coincidence? Maybe they should be looking for his body on their property too!

There should be a National Animal Abuser Registry. Perhaps then these nuts would not be able to move to another locale and abuse again. Of course we all know that just like sexual abuse addiction; animal abuse is incurable.

I was thinking the same thing. How is what she did different than what he did? And her mistreatment was direct from her to the dogs.

Michael Vick, this lady. Once again, it shows that he was used as an example, this lady did the same thing and won't be serving no jail time. She needs to pull that year just like Vick pulled his time, but as usual, the justice system being what it is, she walks.
