I had only heard of her because I enjoyed reading Sylvia Loch's articles and Lesley Skipper was affiliated with her group in the UK and wrote articles for Sylvia's newsletter http://black-tent.co.uk/lesley.aspx
I had also never heard of her, but that is not uncommon either.
I do think it is petty to call her on her weight.
That would be like calling me on my short height.
I think abusers and people that don't take at least minimum standard care of their animals come in all sizes, ages and sexes.
I wonder how anyone gets by without someone catching on before it gets so bad?
The fellow here had been "taking in" any one "unwanted" animal thru Craiglist ads.
Lately there had been warnings about not giving any to him, he was not taking the best care.
Guess so, by the time animal control stepped in, there were some dead ones.
I think that, like with child abuse, the more publicity, the more the general public is aware this happens and maybe can help stop this before it gets so bad.
