"Animal-cruelty charges filed against a woman known for running a successful pack of sporting dogs have been continued until June and will be dropped if she complies with an agreement to clean and maintain her kennel in Roxborough."

"ONeill said from the bench that Willard must install a drainage system, keep her property reasonably free from feces, repair the kennel ceiling, change standing water the dogs drink from at least once a day, and have the dogs checked for parasites."

"ONeill also sharply criticized reported Internet death threats made against animal-control officers for the raid on Willards property."You should contact animal people", ONeill said to Willard, "and tell them that this matter is resolved."

It will be interesting to see is she complies. I am just glad the dogs appear safe. Sadly I suspect that we have more lawsuits and accusations on the horizon.
It makes me wonder what is really going on at Murder Hollow. IF (and I sure don't know) the remaining dogs have that type of infestation and possible infections I am very sad that they were left there.

The one thing I do know is that is not a happy, healthy dog being shown in the picture.
I think Cat has done a good job of presenting what is out there in cyberspace.

And I truly hope that cooler heads prevail. I just don't see this case as a great one for trying to overturn the puppy mill laws. But I truly hope all the hounds are safe and well cared for.
