Everything being said was all taken from Lin Marie's latest video with Andy Sheehan. You can watch it here.http://kdka.com/local/Tiger.Ranch.Cat.2.679899.html
All direct quotes from Lin Marie aka Linda Bruno herself. No one can back up what she is sayin, she can say whatever she wants to, there is NO proof what so ever, that her death rate is 12% other than her own word.
Why you are lashing out at someone, active in the rescue community, in the same area this horror is going on is beyond me. Why kill the messenger? I can assure you I have never had a single dealing with any shelter that would put any animal down for ringworm. We have two fine no kill shelters here, since I belive in no kill, those are where I choose to put in my time.
I would be more than happy to listen to you tell me about the statistics of "your" shelters.
Why so hostile?
There are a few grizzly reasons to freeze a carcass, there is not however a reason not to have them incinerated.
I can not fathom why anyone who claims to love animals would not want to know the truth, regardless of the outcome, when it comes down to what is right for the animals. Some of you are taking this very personally, and being ugly to a stranger among you, who is doing nothing but telling the truth.
Lynn Marie also says, and is being quoted by Jen, about not having a problem in fourteen years, well that is far from the truth. There have been numerous complaints, there have been on going investagations. There just have never been charges filed against her.Alleghey County does not have any "private HA" the only two are the ones hired by Animal Friends, http://www.thinkingoutsidethecage.org/site/PageServer
and the WPA Humane Society, http://www.wpahumane.org/available.html
The WPAHA 's Lee Nesser spoke out saying, they would not send anymore cats to Tiger Ranch, due to the fact there were so many there already. These agents are paid by Animal Friends, and the WPHS to work for those shelters.
They do not go out into the community,at large they are not paid for by the County, therefore they do not over see complaints that come into it. The do look into complaints, and do the work for the shelter they are paid to do the work for. The rest is left largely to animal control agents hired by boro and municpality. They are over taxed as it is with the dog and cat populations, they really do not have much power over a "private shelter". Finding a large animal agent in rural suburbia is next to impossible. Belive me I tired when I saw the condition those poor horses were in.
How sad it took three women from out of the area Deb Urrman [sic
]who is being veiwed as a hero by many, to shut this slow kill shelter down.
None of you know me, and you have no idea of the hours I have logged in shelters, in wildlife rehab, making calls or writting letters and checks to assure a better world and life for animals.
Yet, you will quote me and try to drag down what I am saying, when all you have to do is do a google search, and the truth is right there for you.
Please take a look at the video , look at these cats, suffering, dying.http://kdka.com/pets/Tiger.Ranch.Cats.2.680165.html
This is the only truth any of us need, to see what was going on, listen to the words of the psychologist from Voices for Animals, who took part in the raid.
This video is what it took for a Judge to get a search warrant to raid the ranch. It shows rooms and places on the ranch volunteers or people dropping off or picking up did not ever get to see. There were many complaints, this video just sealed her fate.
We all want what is best for the animals. Look around on the net, most you are going to find this on most animal BB's. But I have yet to visit one, or post on one, where I have been attacked and ganged up on for telling the truth.
God bless you all, especialy you Jen and Gracie.
