WELL...I FIND IT INTERESTING THAT THE AUTHORITIES KNEW THAT SHE WAS TAKING CARE OF SO MANY STRAYS THAT WERE PREVIOUSLY ABUSED AND NEGLECTED; AND OPENLY STATED THAT SHE HAD PROVIDED ADEQUATE CARE FOR EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THEM. SHE TOOK IN SO MANY THAT IRRESPONSIBLE PEOPLE LET ROAM AND REPRODUCE. WHO'S THE REAL ABUSER? THE ANIMALS SHE TOOK IN WERE SKINNY, OLD, AND NEGLECTED. SHE WAS KEEPING UP WITH THEM. SHE JUST HAD A PACEMAKER PUT IN AND IS DISABLED. SHE HAD AN OVER CARING HEART. SHE TOOK IN TOO MANY. JUST AS PEOPLE HAVE AN ADDICTION TO YARD SALE ITEMS, CARS, GUNS. SHE TOOK IN LIVING CREATURES TRYING TO PROVIDE A HOME. THE ONES THAT HAVE DIED, WERE PROBABLY DESTINED TO DO THAT ANYWAY. SHE WAS UNABLE TO BURY THEM DUE TO HER HEALTH. THINK ABOUT IT/IN NATURE WHO WOULD BURY THEM ANYWAY? THE HIGHWAY DEPT PICKS THEM UP AND TAKES THEM TO A DUMP OR INCINERATOR. AS FAR AS NOT HAVING FOOD AND WATER? WHO KNOWS. PERHAPS SHE HAD TO FEED EACH ONE SEPARATELY TO MAKE CERTAIN THERE WAS NO FIGHTING, ETC. WHO KNOWS? HOW WEAK WERE THE DOGS WHEN SHE TOOK THEM IN FEELING SORRY FOR THEM? HOW CLOSE TO DEATH WERE THEY ANYWAY? YOU DON'T KNOW. WAS SHE RIGHT--WHO'S TO CAST THE FIRST STONE! SHE WAS OVERWHELMED. SHE NEEDED HELP FROM THE SHELTER IF THEY KNEW SHE HAD THAT MANY...WHERE WAS ENFORCEMENT OF NEUTERING/SPAYING DOGS SO THAT SHE WOULDN'T FIND HERSELF FACING CHARGES? SHE'S NOT ABUSIVE AT ALL/SHE IS AN ANIMAL LOVER/HOARDER...WITH NO EVIL THOUGHTS ABOUT ANIMALS AT ALL. THERE'S A DIFFERENCE/WHERE WAS THE AUTHORITIES THEN? THE NEWS PAINTS A DRASTIC PICTURE/HOLD YOUR JUDGMENT FOR "PEOPLE LIKE THIS". IT'S LIKE THE PEOPLE WHO ARE ON TV WHO HOARD. THEY NEED HELP/THEY DON'T NEED TO BE CRUCIFIED.
