Note To My Critics:

The links to the many sites that I've included contain information that I believe to be relevant, be it the graphics, the videos, the undercover investigations, etc. . Exposing & and ending the brutality and savagery inflicted on the non-human animals is what I am focused on. I strongly believe that every voice against animal abuse/exploitation is of value and -and- collectively we have the power to end it. I am here for the animals, not for anyone's approval and for that I make no apologies. ** I do not promote violence towards humans. ___________________________________________________ Bookmark and Share

The sheriff's office said she remained in the Meriwether County jail early Friday. It was not immediately known if she had a lawyer.

Meriwether County is located about 90 minutes southwest of Atlanta.

That woman should be banned from owning pets or having child for the rest of her life. There is something very definitely wrong with that woman.

omg, what a horrible, horrible person. she is a sick, twisted individual and I hope she gets some treatment for that insane behavior before she is allowed to rejoin the world.
i agree she should be banned from owning any pets at all and she's obviously not fit to raise a child.
