California woman accused of starving 110 animals

August 3, 2015

On Monday, Monterey County’s Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) received an anonymous call stating dead and dying animals were being housed on a property in Moss Landing. Later in the day, SPCA officers arrived at the property and found five cow skeletons and two dogs in crates in a locked car.

They also discovered piglets with no shelter from the sun or access to water and an anemic border collie mix dog that would have not survived another day, according to the SPCA. The property also had buckets of spoiled milk that were in the sun and covered with flies.

SPCA workers rescued 34 calves, four cows, 35 goats, three sheep, three hens, two ducks, five piglets, 15 dogs and four kittens.

The woman who owns the property blamed the neglect of the animals on a shipment of bad hay. She has not been arrested, but authorities have received a request to file several charges against her.

Investigators are trying to determine how long the animals had been in the woman’s care and how long they went without basic needs.

The SPCA says the animals will be up for adoption once they are healthy and the case is resolved. The agency is seeking people who would welcome animals that are more difficult to adopt, like piglets and the male cows.

        Well said Paso_Guy!

        This crap article is just a piece to keep us from the real MORAL issues.

        God will not be mocked! He has pulled away His hand from us, and His wrath upon this nation and the world is at hand.

        People!…… John 3:16. Wake up!

          ToHellina HandBasket,

          Seriously, referencing John 3:16 is a misnomer because Jesus really didn’t die, and that is because He returned in three days from the tomb. Remember the “Resurrection?”

          A true sacrifice is when the person stays dead, like in the many bloody sacrifices written about in the bible. Jesus never really died for our sins, therefore we’re on our own in just believing in Him, and this alone will get us past the Pearly Gates.

          “To him all the prophets bear witness that everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name.” (Acts 10:43)

            Gee Ted, and all this time I thought Jesus died for the forgovenees of sin. And now you say he didn’t die. My pastor is really gonna be disappointed.

              The bible is explicit on the fact that Jesus arose on the third day, therefore, He really didn’t die in a true sacrificial way, wherefore many others did die within the scriptures to appease Yahweh that remained dead subsequent to a real sacrifice.

              As an example, a US soldier that died in World War 2 defending our country that remained dead, was a real sacrifice because he didn’t have the option of returning to life in a bodily form three days later.

        Why would you bring the Hebrew God of the Christian faith into this discussion regarding abortions?!

        All Christians are aware that our God is responsible for millions of abortions on a yearly basis throughout the world because of “Spontaneous Abortions.” Since our version of God controls LIFE (Job 12:10), and he knows EVERYTHING (1 John 3:20), then Yahweh knows when he is going to spontaneously abort innocent zygotes and fetus’.

        Furthermore relative to abortions, God, not chance, decides what happens in human affairs; “The lot is cast into the lap, but its every decision is from the Lord.” (Proverbs 16:33)

        Paso_Guy, our Christian faith has a hard enough time going into the 21st century without the need of references like you posed to make it any worse, okay? Thank you.

      Well sir there are upwards of eight billion humans existing on the planet , there are only a few thousand lions left in a shrinking eco system. We cannot ignore mistreated animals in our local ecosystem either. gaming both ends of the pan turkish dilemma may lead to a fight with somethings we are not prepared for, and don’t need ,blowback’s a bitch, hint: ayatollah K was secret dia assisted plant to destabilize ussr and usa

      a fetal zygote is related to a human being the same way a ball of yarn is related to a cable knit sweater if you want to donate your miracle cell mass for research you are free to do so you have that right, if you oppose abortion then for Gawd sakes don’t have one.

      ” No, you can’t deny women their basic rights and pretend it’s about your “religious freedom. If you don’t like birth control, don’t use it. Religious freedom doesn’t mean you can force others to live by your own beliefs.”

        Oh really Zap? Like the militant homosexual wing didn’t force us to live by their beliefs? And now, all followers of Jesus Christ will come under persecution.

        What an absolute stupid statement. What, are we all to commit ourselves to the progressive agenda? I can’t think differently than you? Hold values differently from you? A big fat no. Satan knows he has very little time left to create his havoc.

        I watched Shindler’s list the other night for the 1st time. Opinions I’ve read over the years [especially from those on the left] said that Hitler was on the right. A Christian. He was conservative. Right, Right, Right. Let’s assume that is true.

        “Those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it.”

        The quote is most likely due to George Santayana, and in its original form it read, ‘Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.’

        My take away from Shindler’s list was that now, in the 21st century, those on the left like you, and all whom consider themselve’s progressive, have become what Hitler had become. The tables have turned. Much to the detriment of those who follow Jesus Christ.

        As for denying a womans basic right? That’s an insidious statement. What of the unborn childs right? He/She has none because of people like you. The damned.

        A war on women? The lefts wonderful and hateful tagline. Something else that is being shoved down our throats. It is more a calculated and horrific war on the most defenseless. Unborn human children. Created in the image and likeness of our God.

          I pleaded with you to not bring our Christian faith into this discussion, so why do you continue to put our faith in a bad light?

          If you read ALL of our bible, like I am sure you do, then you know it is hardly pro-life to the unborn. So why do you continue to stoke the fire that leaves our Christian brothers out in the open relative to abortions? Why?!

          There’re so many narratives where our loving and forgiving God Yahweh set examples of abortions by either commanding them, or did the horrific act Himself, in killing the unborn. Just one of MANY examples within our scriptures of this dastardly deed is shown below. I am sure you’ll agree, that when our God makes a statement like “I would kill the darlings of their womb” is horrific, but we still have to love him nonetheless.

          “Give them, O Lord—What will You give? Give them a miscarrying womb And dry breasts! “All their wickedness is in Gilgal, For there I hated them. Because of the evil of their deeds I will drive them from My house; I will love them no more. All their princes are rebellious. Ephraim is stricken, Their root is dried up; They shall bear no fruit. Yes, were they to bear children, I would kill the darlings of their womb.” My God will cast them away, Because they did not obey Him; And they shall be wanderers among the nations.” (Hosea 9: 14;17)

          Regarding Adolf Hitler, and for your future enlightenment, he was a devout Catholic as his church stood by and watched him brutally kill six million European Jews. The irony of which is the fact that Jesus was the “King of the Jews” (Matthew 27:37) and the entire bible was written for the Jews only if you’re a follower of Christ.

          “I am now as before a Catholic and will always remain so.” ( Adolf Hitler, from John Toland [Pulitzer Prize winner], Adolf Hitler, New York: Anchor Publishing, 1992, p. 507. )

          ToHellinaHandBasket, please refrain from breaking the thin ice that we true Christians have to walk upon as followers of the Holy Scriptures and Jesus the Christ, okay?

          Again, thank you.

        The land owners altered the course of the river by filling in the river bed during the dry season. This allowed them to farm all of their land and use the water as they saw fit. The old stream bed went from the Old Salinas River, joining Elkhorn Slough on Monterey Bay near Moss Landing, to the present course where the main channel’s mouth is directly on the Pacific Ocean. The Old Salinas River channel that diverts north behind the sand dunes along the ocean, is used as an overflow channel during the rainy season.
