If your neighbor has 117 dogs -- or even 50 dogs -- you should call the police, not give her dog food.
She was the one showing up dumping the 50-pound bags of dog food, not her neighbors. Another earlier story said that it was neighbors who alerted authorities to begin with.
Where’d it say the neighbors were giving her, or the dogs, food?
Granted, the neighbors noticed the woman would show up with food every now and then, and you’d like to think that if they knew the true extent of the the situation that they would have contacted someone about the animals. But then, maybe they are of the keep to yourself kind of thing, not wanting to make waves, etc.
Guessing they knew the true extent and did nothing, which is sad on a whole different level.
The woman, the “alleged” hoarder, well, I really can’t say on a public forum what type(s) of punishment she deserves.
