Punish Family That Allegedly Kept 140 Cats in Meth Lab

Target: Jeff Landry, Attorney General of Louisiana

Goal: Enforce the maximum sentence for family of three accused of keeping 140 cats in a meth lab.

A Louisiana woman and her two sons were allegedly found with 140 cats living in their home, which was also a meth lab. Upon arrival, seven of the cats were already dead while the other 133 were living in squalid conditions with fecal matter all over the property. After being removed from the house, the remaining 133 cats had to be euthanized because their condition was so poor. Currently, all three of these alleged criminals are out on bail.

If it is not already bad enough to run a meth lab, the addition of allegedly forcing animals to live in those conditions makes it unimaginable. For a person to have that many animals, one can assume they originally had the best interest of the pets in mind, but that unfortunately did not continue in this case. These people must be punished for what they have reportedly done. Not only for allegedly hurting all of these helpless cats, but also harming their community by manufacturing and distributing such a dangerous and harmful substance.

People like this can not be allowed to roam free and inflict more damage on their surroundings that they already have. These alleged criminals apparently no longer have regard for the life and value of other living creatures, and need to be put behind bars. Sign this petition to ensure these three receive the maximum sentence for the alleged crimes against their community, as well as these animals.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Landry,

Three people were allegedly found running a meth lab, which contained 140 cats inside. The conditions of a meth lab are in no way, shape or form conducive to the healthy life of a human, let alone a cat. Seven of the cats were already dead when police arrived, and the 133 other had to be euthanized later because of their poor condition. The criminals who have done this can not be allowed to remain free. Currently, all three of them are out on bail and have the opportunity to hurt the community even more.

This mother and two sons were not only allegedly manufacturing methamphetamine, but also distributing the dangerous and deadly drug. They are endangering themselves and their community with their actions, and need to be stopped. Use your power to demand the maximum sentence for those who committed these crimes. If they are left free and not punished, they have the opportunity to endanger more animals and the entire community in which they live.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    AND SOME EDUCATED WOMEN CAUGHT WITH DRUGS IN PRISON FOR MORE THAN 20 YEARS TRYING TO GET PRESIDENTAL PARDON BEFORE PRES.OBAMA LEAVE OFFICE AND WERE DENIED…WHAT IS THE LOGIC HERE….AND TO BESIDE MURDERING 133 CATS…WHEN CATS WITH ONE EYE/MAINED CATS RESCUED AND ARE REHABILITATED…WHO KILLED THESE CATS WHO AUTHORISE THE DEATHS…THEY WERE PROBALBLY KITTENS TOO..PEOPLE WOULD HAVE ADOPTED THEM.

      I am not sure Aileen but I suspect since they were raised in a meth lab they were in no shape to be put up for adoption. Crystal Meth (even the fumes) affects the brain. I worked at a salvage company and when the police confiscated a trailer meth lab we had a hard time disposing of it. You couldn’t enter it or even burn it because the fumes were dangerous. These poor cats living in these conditions probably had brain, nerve and God only knows what other form of injuries. Maybe putting them to sleep was the kindest thing. I don’t know all the information so can’t say but I do know CRYSTAL METH IS A VERY DANGEROUS DRUG.

        That is true Margaret for all we know, I hadn’t thought of that, but the fact that she manufactured and sold drugs AND was the reason for the death of 140 cats makes her a complete undesirable and they need to do something serious with her. And that’s not even taking into account the number of humans she’s either killed or hurt by selling her drugs.

  2. Wow, so they get out of jail!! Unbelievable weak justice system. No wonder there’s so much crime, they know they can abuse animals, sell DRUGS AND GET OUR OF JAIL!! Probably get a misdeamor,that’s usually all if animals are involved, or a warning. So so pathetic.

    this family must be put in jail

  4. Cynthia Mattera says:

    Please prosecute all 3 people to the fullest extent of the law. They will just do this again if not stopped! All 133 cats are dead because of them. Absolutely disgusting and evil!

  5. Why were the poor cats killed???? Oh I guess the shelter did not want to deal with them. That is just so horrible. They ALL couldn’t have been that bad. People would have adopted them. This country has its priorities so SCREWED UP!!! Kill the cats and let the people who did this horrible act to these poor babies live and let’s let them walk the streets to cook more meth. Wonderful justice system!!!!! It just makes me sick!! And a Mother?? That is even sicker.

  6. All 133 cats had to be euthanized? That is had to believe. Not even ONE could be saved. I think who ever rescued these cats didn’t want to bother with them. Also why are these people out in the street. This is exactly why there continues to be animal abuse that is running rapid. There are minimal consequences for these offenders. We need to start treating animal abusers like the Scum they are.

  7. “So many people insist they are against animal abuse, cruelty, suffering and the inhumane treatment of animals, yet they don’t understand they are actively engaging in and supporting egregious suffering, abuse, cruelty and inhumane treatment when they eat animals and their ‘by-products.’ If you are against cruelty, suffering and inhumane treatment, then you go vegan. It’s just that simple.” – Sarah Kiser

      ahimsa I am vegan,but this not about animals who are slaughtered for meat,its about animals kept cruelly in a house with meths.Get your prioroties right,do not preach,people have to make their own minds up.

  8. Do your fucking job arrest these 3 idiots and get those cats somewhere safe and where they can be cared for. Wtf is wrong with you people????

  9. Carolyn Taylor says:

    Punish these putrid cat abusers to the fullest extent of our completely inadequate animal abuse laws, now!

    • Yes, to the fullest extent of our completely inadequate animal protection/anti-cruelty laws. The writer of the petition says everything MIGHT have started out with the best intentions, but everything disintegrates in a meth haze… I too wonder if something MORE couldn’t have been done for the cats – 140 cats is an awful lot of cats to be euthanized…something feels strange (though I’m not by any means an expert with regards to meth fumes).
