Mr. Matthew Cox
We, the undersigned, wish to bring to your attention our support of the conviction of Betty Gould on January 30, 2013, of the counts of aggravated animal abuse and animal abandonment that are charged against her. We feel that these types of crimes are too often ignored or dropped and that the actions of Ms Gould are too blatant to dismiss. The time has come to enforce these laws as they are written, and we urge that the ultimate penalties allowed be inflicted. The cats within her "care" should be confiscated and there are local and national rescue organizations ready to take on responsibility for these animals.
Thank you for your consideration.
