Don't worry about her too much. Part of her sentence is paying the park rangers $500.00. That leads me to believe that they will be close by. She will have access to a walkie-talkie. I'm sure they'll let her have a blanket. She can always jog in place and do jumping jacks to stay warm.

That was her training method. I'd love to see this woman get that same treatment! Maybe it would 'train' her to not be so cruel to these poor defenseless creatures.
Um, that has made me nauseated and sick.

Did you report this woman? And she is surely not STILL doing this is she?

She didn't even stay there for over 3 hours!!!!

It was too cold - Poor baby, how do you think those poor kittens felt? I would have left her out there to freeze personally

And she was let out to go home the next day as the rest of her sentance was suspended.

Hmmm....How much punishment did she actually get? Not much in my opinion.

Bummer he should put her back out there when the temperatures rise back up. What she did, abandoning 35 kittens is reprehensible! She gets no sympathy from me and I hope she is now the scorn of the community for doing this.

Talon, thanks for the link. I must say, I am less impressed with the judge now. Although I can see letting her off after 3-1/2 hours in freezing, snowy weather, I don't understand why he let her off from the jail sentence. Let's hope she learned her lesson!

Rest in peace, babies. I cannot even imagine how anyone can hold a furry ball of love and take it to the woods and dump it! Even if I had 33 or 35 babies-no way could I consider that.

I know a lot of people won't agree with me on this, but I don't think human life is any more valuable than a cats life. I think all life a valuable. I think she should have recieved the same sentance that she would have gotten, had she taken a child out and turned it loose out in the cold.

This story, complete with shots of the woman, made German news broadcasts this evening. The woman is now an "international disgrace". I still wish she'd had to do the jail time.
post #74 of 80
Hopehacker..I completely agree.

And especially when that life is DEPENDANT on you - Its worth more.

Um....sorry to hijack the thread a bit, but I STILL can't stop thinking about what Bengalbabe said about that woman and they way she'd beat her horses. I dreamt about it last night, and it's been on my mind all day. I can't get over it, I wish I'd never read it, I can't get it out of my head....I'm very, very distressed about this - and especially the possibility that she might still be doing it...

Doesn't she still have to do her 15 days in jail and 14 on house arrest? That is obviously not NEARLY enough, but its better than getting off scott free. I don't understand why she was brought home rather than jail either. I was home on Thanksgiving Day too - right where I wanted to be. Some punishment!

I'm pretty sure she was pulled from the woods on advisement from some of the judge's peers, that, on the off chance that something bad were to happen to that woman out in the cold, he and his juristiction would get their butts sued off for handing down a sentence of his own making.
They also probably decided it was best to just let her go scott free as it were. Wusses!

Wrong decision IMO, she should have remained for the duration and since she isn't getting fined, I think it would have been appropriate to have someone hose her down with cold water every 2 hours.

Probably a good thing I'm not a judge......I wouldn't last long on the bench
