    Can't say I feel bad for her. Hope that doesn't make me look bad!

    I agree but I do feel bad for the poor animals.

    I can't help but think that if she had spayed them as requested, and actually looked after them properly, this may have been avoidable.

    Although, it does say in the article that they aren't sure whether she was attacked by the animals and that was what killed her, as she was feeling sick the last day she was seen by her neighbors. It's possible she passed of natural causes and the animals were starving.

    Whatever the case, may she rest in peace.

    My bet is that she died and they ate her because they had nothing else to eat. :twocents:

    The same thing happened with a guy who had giant lizards.
    They believe he died of natural causes before the lizards ate him.

    This isn't the animals fault. It doesn't mean the animals were wild or dangerous.
    This is an owner who was in over her head and didn't know when to stop.

    ANY starving animal will eventually do this, even starving humans will eat humans eventually.
    When you cannot adequately care for ALL of your animals, it's time to reduce the numbers. :twocents:

    I saw a gorgeous dog today that I want SO BAD. (Well 2 of them really.)
    I only have 2 dogs. Yet I know that 2 is all I can handle right now.
    So I did not stop and get the dog(s), even though it was REALLY hard to drive by. :please:
    I do know my limits. Not everyone does. :twocents:

    She was an animal hoarder, yes that is the correct term. I've seen shows on people like this- she had 200 according to the article, then was allowed to keep only 25, if she spayed and neutered them. She did not and another 34 were euthanized in 2003. Now she had 50 that were malnourished. They probably ate her out of hunger. Poor things.
