Before we shut it down for the night (though David Koon may post again later), here's a press release from the Baxter County sheriff about the sentencing today of the woman who fled Arkansas after officials found 500 dogs in miserable condition on her property in Gameliel (see picture above of one of them). A Baxter County judge sentenced her to a year in prison and fined her $500 on each of 20 counts of animal cruelty. She also ordered to pay the Humane Society of the United States $500. Paltry (though the legal max), given the HSUS says it spent $100,000 on the rescue and placement of the dogs.
Now, an open line.
