Perhaps she figured out the plan and didn't want to live in a world ruled by dogs.

"Animal Rights Foundation will continue, as strong as ever, in Sandy's memory,"

Umm, why? And not "Why are they continuing", but why would you continue in her memory? She intentionally killed 31 dogs.

"We will go on caring, supporting, and helping all animals in distress and supporting laws to protect our animals in her honor."

I think they meant, "in her horror."

Surprised the winning dog didn't eat her face off.

Reminds me of that guy who let all of his exotic animals loose before killing himself.  What is it about Ohio and weird animal stories?

Which is marginally less than is typical for shelters that can't handle the load of dogs coming in.

"She woke every day to help all of God's beautiful creatures. She fed the deer, squirrels, birds, raccoons, geese and what she called 'Sandy's Safe Haven For All Animals' at her home,'" a statement on the Animal Rights Foundation website said.

Jebus Christ, you weirdos. Can we have some people who love animals who aren't emotional basket cases? You're making the rest of us look bad.

Yes, out of necessity. Are you trying to say she did this out of necessity?

But it IS true that shelter runs by people you'd expect to have "no kill " policies like the "animals are people too" folks at PETA are shockingly quick to put healthy animals down.
 
2013-11-13 11:03:10 AM
This is deplorable.

If I ever commit suicide I will leave out bowls of food for my stuffed animals.
 
2013-11-13 11:03:15 AM
Um.... So, she left a suicide note, but the TFA says nothing of what the note contained and why she killed herself and the dogs.

Would be nice to know her motive, considering how much she loved animals.

Nobody likes Jonestown jokes, subby. The punchlines are always too long.

blatz514: Surprised the winning dog didn't eat her face off.


Well he had 31 other dogs to eat first so I'm sure he would have gotten around to it eventually.
 
2013-11-13 11:03:55 AM
I'm shocked - SHOCKED - that a woman with 31 dogs might not be entirely mentally stable.

It doesn't surprise me when one of the people who says crap like "my dog is a better person than most people" do things like this. Talk about a warped perspective.

I love my dog but he is not and never will be a person or a "family member."

Great.  The Jesus freaks have merged with the animal rights crowd.  We're all farked.
 
2013-11-13 11:08:09 AM
Poor dogs :(

With this and the UN thread have we changed the meaning of the word "rights"?

I'm assuming the note just consisted an ink paw print.

jshine: I'm shocked - SHOCKED - that a woman with 31 dogs might not be entirely mentally stable.


Right?

This is tragic regardless. I mean, there's a lot of depressed, lonely people out there with only animals for company. It's sad she wasn't able to get the help she needed.

nekom: Reminds me of that guy who let all of his exotic animals loose before killing himself.  What is it about Ohio and weird animal stories?


Exactly what I was thinking. That was, easily, the strangest documentary that I ever saw on PBS.
 
2013-11-13 11:11:40 AM
She was last seen alive on Nov. 3rd, and found dead on Nov. 4th.  But it is unclear how long she was dead for.
I would venture it was something like 24 hours, or so.

In any case...  She seems to have failed in her lifelong mission.  She was supposed to be saving these dogs.  Couldn't she have at least found homes for them rather than committing them to a death sentence?

/Poor doggies.
//Jerk.
 
2013-11-13 11:15:10 AM
This is kinda like those mothers that take their kids out with them when they go. So depressed and delusional that they think everyone they love is better off dead than dealing with this horrible world.

Tragic.

Except for one random day in November.

I seem to recall this being fairly common with pet-owner suicides.

There was a documentary about that? Do you remember the title? I tried to look it up but the Googs are failing me.

Probably a lot like people who murder their children before committing suicide. My kids dogs need me so I'm taking them to heaven where we can be together!

Everybody's dead? Except one dog?

You have your own special color on my fark, and the note "greatest pun in the history of the known universe" (I believe it was the Rhodes Scholared glasses one).   Without that warning I might have been forced to stab a fork in my eye after reading this one...well done

From TFA:
"The surviving dog is recovering at home with Lertzman's husband, Rick, and son, Matthew. "

So, not so much in her case.
 
2013-11-13 11:34:34 AM
I think everyone is overlooking the obvious and quick to jump to conclusions.  We have one lone dog survivor in the story.  Now how is that one dog survives when all the others do not and the activist/savior suddenly decides to cash in her chips (all all her furry friends chips) and take the CO train to Rainbow Bridge?  I'll tell you how.  That one lone "survivor" was not a survivor at all.  He staged the whole thing to look like a suicide and euthanasia scene while he killed them all.  I saw this happen before on one of those late night "When Animals Attack" shows.  Well played "Lucky".... Well played.

She was a terrible pet parent.

It was in Zanesville, in 2011. I just did the Googs thing myself and found a bunch, mostly of the Monday-morning-quarterback variety (if animals hadn't been killed we would have all died, OR, didn't need to shoot animals, etc) but I couldn't put my finger on the one that PBS showed, which may have been lifted from National Geographic channel. If I find it I'll post a link.

She killed herself, and 31 dogs she loved, leaving behind her husband and son - who were obviously involved with the pet rescue and could certainly have continued to care for said 31 dogs.  It doesn't matter what her note said - she was mentally unbalanced - there's no insight to be found in her note.
