It's not illegal in this part of the world to do what she is doing.

Anyone who owns an animal in the Netherlands can do with it as they
please. She is living and acting within the limits of the law of her

She is not the only one murdering animals in the Netherlands. The laws
in this country are in gross need of change. >^..^< M.

Response from the Dutch Government:

"Dear Sir/Madam,

Thank you for your email, in which you express concern about the work of the artist Katinka Simonse.
The Dutch government cannot judge artistic merit, but Dutch law does criminalize the maltreatment of animals, and the killing of animals is subject to rules on animal welfare. Causing an animal unnecessary suffering is considered to be maltreatment, and carries a prison sentence of up to three years and/or a fine of up to €19,000.

At present there are no statutory rules about the situations in which it is permissible to kill an animal, though these are currently under preparation and expected to take effect in 2013.

Kind regards,

Netherlands Information Desk (NID) for the Dutch Diplomatic Missions in North America.
Phone: 1-877-DUTCHHELP (1-877-388-2443)
Office hours: 8AM–8PM Eastern Standard Time (2:00pm-2:00am local time in the

What the heck do they mean "The Dutch government cannot judge artistic merit" !?!?

This is not about judging "artistic merit" !!!! This is about criminalizing individuals who
murder animals and call it "art" !!!!

Thank goodness laws are in the works against this blasphemous, depraved, horrific
practice! Murder is not art!

>^..^< M.

She keeps a disgusting scrap book of all her hate mail and promotes herself like she's an animals welfare activist.She loves her negative and murderous attention,shes the scum of the Earth.I wish the laws worked instead of feeding fer dementia.She should be in a padded cell..... Like Constance said she is a repulsive sociopath, and probably a psychopath as well,which their is no known cure for. I'm so sorry for the suffering she causes and that the Dutch allow this torture and murder under "autistic" licence...
Singed, Thanks Simone
