First degree animal cruelty and she remains free??? How many more must she kill before they lock her up where she belongs

And WHY has she not been jailed? She has abused these animals, so much so as to cause death to some. It's high time for her to have the tables turned on her - to see how it is to be deprived of what she wants. She should be incarcerated for a long time and never able to own animals again with her past history. Her true colors have shown themselves over and over again.

when it comes to animals, the laws aren't strict enough.

Thanks Simone! A woman and so cruel! Defying nature that has given us so much of delicacy with firmness, knowledge with wisdom, heart and head to rule together and all the best qualities to make this Earth a warm, loving place!?! I'm in shock! Such beautiful animals and she has gone and killed them or hurt them badly....its something to be looked into and the woman to be put away with care of the type she'd need!

It's time for drastic action to be taken in situations like this... i say starve her, and abuse her... perhaps then she'll learn, but she should NEVER be allowed near any animal, ever again...

I think that people like this, should be manditorally registered for animal cruilty, like sex offenders are!!

Where is the justice??? This is madness!! She should be jailed and given a diet of approx. 200 calories a day so she can see first hand what she put those animals through. Ugh....This is so upsetting!! It is stories like this that make my blood boil! I agree with Melanie, animal cruelty laws are not strict enough and the penalties are not harsh enough.

Yes, and if this woman has children Child Protective Services should be contacted as we all know the connection between animal abuse/neglect and child abuse/neglect!.
The fact that she has not been arrested makes me think that she was charged with misdemeanors.
It's sometimes difficult to refrain from vulgarities in my comments to these atrocities.

I wish she would be in jail, but people don't consider cruelty to animals the same as cruelty to people. However if you're cruel to one it's difficult to see how you wouldn't be to the other.. I hope she gets the maximum sentence available.

This is absolutely tragic. I can't understand how abuse of animals is treated any differently than that of children...

Seems humans don't give a damn when it happens to animals - but a kid, then oh no, how terrible, lock them up forever.

How sad to see that cruelty towards animals is not punishable but we go for the jugular if it is paedophiles etc...a MURDER is a MURDER.... there should be justice for all living things....just too sad for the poor animals who suffered.
