Animals Reportedly Barely Able to Move Inside Cramped, Filthy Cages Deserve Justice

Target: Gallatin County, Montana District Attorney, Marty Lambert

Goal: Give woman severest legal sentence for allegedly allowing animals to live in their own waste inside a hot basement without appropriate food or water.

Sixty-seven animals were allegedly housed in a filthy, over-heated basement without proper food or water. Kami Marie Reihman was arrested shortly afterwards for animal cruelty in connection with the crime. She needs to spend the maximum time behind bars if she is found guilty of these acts of animal abuse.

Reihman was charged with over 10 acts of felony aggravated animal cruelty after many animals were reportedly found locked up in a hot basement near a toilet that smelled of waste. According to authorities there were many puppies shoved inside a kennel where they could barely move, kennels buried in animal hair and waste, and other filthy cages.

Multiple kittens and cats were reportedly found, along with exotic animals such as lizards and a chinchilla. Other wild animals and farm animals were also allegedly rescued. Officers further indicated they found dogs and sheep that were dangerously thin. Lizards were also allegedly found without food or water, and dead chickens and hens were apparently found in the backyard.

Reihman was on probation for elderly extortion when officers visited her home. Authorities allegedly found loaded weapons and alcohol on the property, which are considered to be probation violations. Additionally, Reihman has other misdemeanor animal cruelty charges that are still pending. This woman should not be allowed to remain in society if these allegations are true. Sign this petition to demand she get the harshest legal sentence for these alleged acts of animal cruelty, to better ensure other animals will be safe.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear District Attorney Lambert,

Kami Marie Reihman was recently cited with over 10 felony counts of animal cruelty after over sixty animals were allegedly found living in an extremely hot basement without adequate food or water. It was further reported they were locked inside cages and covered in their own waste. Reihman needs to be given the most stringent sentence possible if she is found guilty of such unfathomable animal cruelty.

Reihman was on probation for extortion when she received a visit from authorities. Upon entering the home, officers allegedly found multiple animals trapped in a basement that were being kept inside unclean cages and kennels near a dirty toilet. Numerous puppies were reportedly unable to effectively move around inside their kennels, which were filled with urine, feces, and animal hair. Cages used to house other animals were allegedly also disgusting. In addition, dogs and sheep that were said to be too thin were also found. All types of animals were reportedly seized from the property, including, kittens, cats, farm animals and various types of exotics. Lizards that reportedly had no access to food or water were also found. It was further reported that dead chickens and hens were discovered in the backyard.

Treating animals like this should not be tolerated. We therefore demand you suggest Reihman get the longest prison sentence possible if she is found guilty of these senseless acts of animal abuse.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. throw the book at this piece of dirt she has proven she is not going to change and she should suffer for what she has done… i cannot believe she is not in prison already what has happened to letting people serve time for their crimes. what she did to these animals is unacceptable and she got away with treating elderly and taking their hard earned money and now this you let her off with a slap in the wrist .. what is wrong with yall

  2. This Bitch needs to pay for all the medical treatment of the animals she had there in deplorable conditions. Then she needs to be locked up in a crate and left in a hot basement without food and water so she can experience what she put those innocent animals thru. There is NO other justice. There she can serve her, what should be, 67 counts of animal cruelty.

  3. Well it sounds like she is GUILTY! So she should get the maximum penalty and fines. She needs to pay and never again be allowed to come near another animal.

    I agree with ch …she needs to taste what she did to all the little innocent animals.

    …or this kind of deplorable treatment of animals will continue…. if every person that treats animals, in the same manner, is allowed to get away with a slap of wrist!!!!!!!!!!

    • If that’s the worst photo they could find, then I don’t care what they wrote about someone. This is sensationalistic journalism designed to get people to sign their names and get on contact lists to sell to organizations. Those puppies look fine to me. They’re healthy and the newspaper is clean and dry. Sure there’s a little fresh poop on the kennel, but it looks like it just happened and puppies poop continuously. Sounds like another witch hunt from a local competing rescue to me. The authorities don’t care about animals. They just arrest without real cause. They’ll kill half these animals without giving them medical care they “claim” they need because of budget considerations or because it’s a senior animal. They AREN’T the good guys. THINK before you react to these stories. The truth is never what they tell you it is.

      • Christina, This story was in the News papers. Look it up before Ignorantly judging by stock photos or after the rescue pic. You are obviously oblivious of mans brutality towards animals. I help two rescues and this evil does exist. !!!

      • what are you talking about,are you saying that this is all a put on and a lie, all made up, just to get people Ito sign and to donate?? Please can you kindly get back to me. I worry sometimes is Peta doing the job they say they are doing, or do they just put these animals to sleep. I donate often and wonder does it really help
        I appreciate it. Thank You Patricia

  4. Please help those who can’t speak.

    LOCK THIS CUN* UP FOR GOOD SHE TAKES ADVANTAGE OF INNOCENT VULNERABLE PEOPLE AND ANIMALS AND SHE CLEARLY IS A SOCIOPATH THAT NEEDS PRISON PSYCHIATRIC HELP MEDS AND BE MONITORED FOR LIFE!!! SHE WOULD TRAFFIC CHILDREN IF SHE COULD GET NEAR THEM AS ITS CLEAR SHE TAKES ADVANTAGE OF VULNERABILITIES OF HUMANS AND INNOCENT ANIMALS!!!

  6. Maggie Loughran says:

    Digusting she needs jail what a pos

    • Give the bitch the maximum sentence felony charges. The law has already been too easy on her they just dont do their job.
      The law in Montana doesnt seem to care how animals get treated in that backward hill billy State.

  7. American Girl says:

    Give her to the Animal Rights Activists, we’ll make sure the older people and beautiful animals get justice! This is absurd that this Oxygen Thief is allowed to exist! Post her name and address all over the damn place!

  8. Julia Edinger says:

    THE PERFECT PUNISHMENT IS TO GIVE HER THE SAME EXACT LIVING CONDITIONS ,,, WITH A FOUR YEAR SENTENCE….. KARMA FOR THAY “EVIL BEING” !!!

  9. If there was ever a person to make an example out of, this is the person. She knew exactly what she was doing, and she is an evil monster. Show her that she cannot treat living beings like this. Lock her up and preferable give her exactly what she gave these animals – no mercy.

  10. Hang the fucking cunt

  11. The good ole boys in Montana will protect her rights to swill alcohol, stockpile weapons, and treat animals anyway she pleases. They’re RED! Go MAGA!

    And just to be clear, animal abuse laws ARE political. Issues like this do not need to be “politicized.” They have always been political, because the people YOU elect into your local area, county, city, and state government, such as sherif, mayor, city council, governor, etc., represent your values.

  12. Yolanda Holtzee says:

    Reihman is a recidivist.

    Seek max prison time.

    Hope fellow meth smoking inmates stick her head in a plugged up toilet several time a day for fun.

    Thanks for arresting this sociopath.

  13. No, no alleged…stop the BS….this monster let these angels suffer; period.
    Judges and lawyers stop handing down these slaps on the wrists; plea deals.
    Do you really believe that these creatures do not feel the same pain and hopelessness as humans??!!The more you let these abusers off the hook the more you allow animals to suffer … 10 felony charges…make sure they stick.

  14. Anne-Mari Gavin says:

    These Abusers MUST BE FED TO SHARKS CROCS OR LIONS!!!!

  15. Eye for an eye. Put her in a small cage the same way she did these dogs.

  16. Judy Boyko says:

    What is justice for what this woman did to those animals, how can she pay for a crime like this which was absolute torture for those little dogs cats etc who lived under her so called care! There is none… nothing we as humans could do to make her understand her cruel treatment of animals she wouldnt understand unless she was kept in that basement like the animals were until she was near death… do we have any idea if she had any dead animals on her property and where did the puppies come from! No jail is to good for her and our courts are to easy on animal abuse cases so lock her up in her own basement in the animal waste she let collect maybe then she will understand how horrific her treatment was!

  17. She needs to be securely LOCKED in a tiny steel cage, tossed in a basement and forgotten…She can live in her own waste and eat it if she is hungry….IN MY OPINION

  18. Make sure she is in the smallest cell and she can’t move don’t give her a drop of water she needs to be treated the way she was treating those poor animals. They need to be out in the fresh air running around.

  19. GET REAL – END THIS MADNESS! ZERO EXCUSE, ZERO TOLERANCE – ENOUGH!

  20. Prosecute this horrible abuser 3 The PACT ACT. Proverbs 12:10
