Bernheim Forest's deer crippled and alone in an inadequate enclosure.

On February 18, 2011 Briana, the then remaining whitetail doe at Bernheim Forest, was fraudulently conveyed to another facility. The act of moving Briana was fraudulent for there was a written agreement concerning her welfare and care. If where she was moved had done right by her then the dishonesty of the move would not have mattered since Mark K. Wourms, Bernheim's executive director, had not wanted her. Fuzzy had already died under questionable circusmtances. The two vultures had been moved. The goat had prematurely died under questionable circumstances. And then Briana was fraudulently conveyed. Where Briana was moved to knows nothing about proper nutrition for an adult deer and about good animal husbandry. They failed to transition her feed, and fed her a starter feed for youngsters. Ironically Mark K. Wourms would be the best expert to testify to the wrongs done to Briana by not transitioning her commercial feed and providing her a much too rich textured starter feed. Briana is now crippled as a result of the multiple wrongs done by the vet and owner where she now is. Further she is alone in the owner's tiny backyard, without trees, and where four yapping poodles are let out to torment her. They defecate and urinate in her small space and when they run after her, and she tries to run but cannot, the owner finds it amusing and cute. It is sad and unfortunate.
If anyone cared about Briana I am asking they contact me about what could be done. Briana is an amazing courageous beautiful animal who has been wrongfully crippled and is being brutalized by what is going on. She is in an inadequate enclosure that is causing her suffering for she feels her lack of, her loss of, freedom. There is no way of knowing if she is now being fed properly. She is not given alfalfa hay, but a poor quality of old coarse hay. The dishonesty and lying of where she is equals that of Bernheim Forest and Mark K. Wourms. The owner said that a companion would be put in with Briana, but no companion has ever been put in. The owner thinks nothing of lying and fabricating. Briana sits at the gate and looks at the forest outside of the tiny backyard enclosure and is pining. The owner actually said -when I said that Briana is lonely and needs a 24/7 companion- that she herself is lonely and depressed so let Briana be lonely and depressed. The owner is like taking out on Briana her own misery by inflicting misery on Briana. To say that since she is lonely and depressed let Briana be lonely and depressed shows the utter disregard she has to an animal's suffering. Briana has been cheated by the written agreement having been violated. Mark K. Wourms promised to feed her correctly and to provide her a 24/7 companion and to care for her. Instead he dishonestly moved her and now she has been crippled, has no companion, and is in an inadequate enclosure. At least at Bernheim forest she had a decent enclosure. But now she is in this woman's tiny backyard despite the fact that this womanh has almost 4,000 acres and so could provide Briana with a decent enclosure. Please someone care and contact me about what we can do to help improve Briana's situation and condition. Thank you for any positive help.

Ms. Elaine Matthews posted her opinion above as Bardstown Ky. She failed to included the info that she thinks she is channelling the deer thur her multiple personalities. And that she tried to break into the place where the deer was kept to free the deer. She took bernheim to court over the amount of protein they were feeding the handicapped deer that they cared for. These deer
were cared for so much that they are buried with a marker near the visitor center. Bernheim is having a hard time making her go away. To this day she sits on the roadway at the entrance of the park with a growing number of signs that say things like:
animal abuse, meth felon, colin lied and many other things.

Residents of bullitt or nelson, If you can assist bernheim in making her GO AWAY. Please HELP.
Thanks so MUCH....

Or maybe a job. I say we get a group of people to promote bernheim on the same days she is out there. 15 to 20 people to 1 crazy bitch. Maybe then she will learn to sit at home or find something productive to do. Just imagine how kentucky looks when tourists drive by and see her standing there with all her signs. Shits rediculous.

Wow. What hate against this country's Constitution and the right to protest. Whether or not Elaine Matthews is a "crazy bitch" is not the point. She is legally allowed to protest. Your ignorance and hate ridiculously extend to freedom of speech, thought, and opinion. That is what is ridiculous. Those two deer buried at Bernheim are from decades back. Neither Fuzzy nor Briana, about whom the protest started, are buried there with plaques. Bernheim used to be run differently and more humanely from how it now operates. It is now a totally dishonest business. Many people, especially in Bullitt County, view it has gone against those values wanted and envisioned by Isaac Wolfe Bernheim. It was supposed to be free for the people of Kentucky, and he left multimillions in trust for that purpose. It is not need, but it is greed, behind the business now charging. Further based on research done and authorities spoken with the nutrition given Fuzzy and Briana was not adequate. Then Briana was moved to an incompetently run place in Meade County, where she was overly fed and foundered by the incompetent veterinarian. Maybe if you used your intelligence and found out the facts about what went on you wouldn't write the stupidities that you've written. There have been a lot of wrongs and dishonesty, and to attack someone without knowing all of the facts is ridiculous. Your attacks on protesting are totally wrong and not very American.

Go to www.tinyurl.com/ajasv58 to know some of what has gone on. Further Elaine Matthews never tried to free the deer, the lies told are absurd. She wanted the care given them in their captivity to be improved, especially their dietary needs to be addressed and improved. They had been given no feed for several days, when the weather was very bad, and that is totally wrong as was the low quality of commercial feed. Maybe if you knew the facts of what went on you'd support the protest? This is America and we have a Constitution that gives us freedoms and rights, including to protest. Your calling someone "crazy" when you know nothing of the facts and when you probably don't even have a college degree, much less a Ph.D. or M.D, to be evaluating anyone's sanity, indicates that you are an uneducated idiot, stupid, and ignorant. That is further indicated by the disregard and contempt shown to our Constitution.

Are you against senior citizens? If you go to www.tinyurl.com/ajasv58 and if you can read you will see why Bernheim is still being protested. They are an evil dishonest business. Mark K. Wourms is a total liar without integrity. And a written agreement was violated. The matter is languishing in the Kentucky Court of Appeals, too late for the dead deer. But maybe something right will come from it.

It is legal to protest in the United States. Is Bullitt County, Kentucky part of the U.S.? Are you even an American who knows about the Constitution?

Elaine Matthews made a legal argument, to get what is called legal standing, that she has multiple personality and was one with the deer. It was a legal argument, which you could in no way comprehend. That took on a life of its own; but it should have been left as a legal argument which you would never comprehend. Whether in fact she is or is not a multiple personality is beside the point. If she is that is unfortunate and not something to be used against her. Would you use cancer against someone with cancer? Probably, given the state of your intelligence and compassion; a state of total absence.

The meth felon refers to Michael A. O'Bryan about whom you can read, if you can even read, at www.tinyurl.com/ajasv58

Your lack of respect for an American right and freedom is abominable. Maybe you should go over to Meade County where they do trample our Constitution. Kentucky is some great intelligent place, eh wot? You're why the Commonwealth is looked down upon as stupid. To protest is something to respect, not to attack.
