Man, why isn't this guy locked up already? Put him in a wire floored cell that is only big enough for him to turn around, don't give him a toilet so he has to sleep in his own poo, feed him sparingly, and don't let him bath and/or groom himself.

Maybe it will take the public to march in and put this chump in his place. Ill bet he wont like the caged life he will lead. The Authority's are a friggin JOKE! The magistrate should have locked this idiot up a LOOOONG time ago for animal abuse. Once again... if it was me or you doing this....we would already be in a cell with no way out!! Wonder what would happen if this place was loaded with police dogs and not a dog mill???

I'm glad to see the dog wardens are doing their job. Finally, some one is looking out for the animals.

Everytime you read about this guy, you wonder why he is even out of jail. I love dogs, and I now live where I can't have one, but this guy has no feelings for them and he has them. Greed is a very selfish reason to make these animals suffer.

WHAT IS GOING ON? HOW IN THE WORLD IS THIS ALLOWED TO HAPPEN? To the authorities, I say, ENOUGH ALREADY! DO YOUR JOB! It was only a short time ago this monster was busted and it was plastered all over the news. And in this short time, without constant observation, he was allowed to fill up that hell hole again and object even MORE animals to his torture? WAKE UP PEOPLE! DEMAND JUSTICE!

Funny thing is that they're hounding (ha) the rescues. We've been visited several times. As a foster home for just one or two dogs, I have to have a kennel license- and I spend money without making any- Yet this guy continues to throw it all back in their faces with impunity.
Whoever wrote that he won't stop until imprisoned is clearly right.

Seriously, This is beginning to look like some sort of compulsion. I almost want to meet this guy because he is either a total moron to keep messing with the authorities or he is a legal genius that he is able to keep outmaneuvering them and bringing in more animals all the time. Obviously the laws must just have no teeth. He lost his license but can contnue to keep hundreds of dogs without acquiring new ones? What kind of punishment is that?

When is this scum bag gonna stop!! Appeal my ass....he doesnt deserve one./He needs to be locked in a tiny pen....I could rant about him until eternity and anyone who sticks up for him belongs in the pen with him because clearly the animals well being has never been seen with Dorky Eckhart and never will be. he doesnt see it as an animal, he sees it as a dollar sign!!

I have a better idea. Bring him to MY house so I can...(in my best Montgomery Burns voice)...release the hounds.

There's definitely signs of 'hoarder' personality mixed in, you're right.

Again? He's inspected in April 2009 and STILL has ownership of animals! How can a "human" being, and I use that word loosely, like this be allowed to own any type of animal?

How can anyone with a conscious even defend a scumbag like this?

The people where he got the animals from should also be looked into.....who knows what their background is?

Our laws for these poor animals are so wrong..........

You Have to be kidding!!!!!!!!!!
I think it is just another snub at the law!
Why is not the pspca acting on this one they are the ones who cut a deal with him in the first place has he not violated the deal yet?

More dogs from Ny is that tattoo freak still working for him?
If she is she might have been the one who got him the dogs from NY her home state.

Or did she get off scott free for all the s### she did being the so called informant?

Either way all that matters is that they close the doors on this guy. How the hell can he still have 200 and some dogs and 90 some pups?
