It is very sad for the woman and
the poor animals. What I don't get is that supposedly most of the dogs were purebreds that she had purchased
. Here is something else I don't get; one of the articles I read said: Long-time Lee County Animal Control Warden Jack Nicklaus says Munroe's own health was starting to deteriorate. She called them in tears last week asking for help
. Investigators say the living conditions could be a sign of mental illness. "I'm not a doctor so it's very hard for me to say, but seeing this property, I would think something is not right," says Whitcombe. Animal Control searched the home after Munroe failed to bring 35 of her dogs in for rabies shots
If she had been taking her dogs in for rabies shots, Animal Control had a record of how many dogs she owned. Had they never been to her property to inspect it to see if she was properly caring for so many? And not that it would have made a difference but where was Animal Control when she called to ask for help?
