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.


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.

  1. Lock this scum up and throw away the key. Better yet, let it starve tto death and die amongst its own waste. And yes, I say it on purpose. After all humans would never treat innocent, helpless beings this way since we are so humane (sarcasm).

  2. Prosecute this horrible abuser under the PACT ACT. Proverbs 12:10

  3. Dale Mellis says:

    This evil witch should get the maximum jail sentence for her cruelty to these poor animals and also never allowed to own any more animals ever.

  4. Michelle Stewart says:

    That bitch should be charged with 67 first degree animal cruelty felony charges, spend 67 years in prison with no early parole, pay a $1 million dollar fine, and be banned for life of owning or going near any animals ever again. She should be in prison for life. Real justice would be to execute her.

  5. Carolyn Long says:

    This monster belongs in jail. Ban her from owning/being around all animals.

  6. Tania Connor says:

    Henious bitch

  7. Remove all the innocent animals from the deplorable conditions in the basement and elsewhere on her property.
    Lock her up in the basement, walk away and throw away the key.
    Justice…an eye for an eye!!!


  9. I am so tired of what people like this stinking woman do to animals, they think of animals has nothing, yet they feel, they hurt, they have emotions, yet they write if found guilty, she is guilty , what more proof, holy cow, I am sick of this world , where animals can’t even live, where they are constantly being tortured and abused, for food, entertainment, to experiment on, leave these poor babies alone. And please can someone tell me what did they do with the animals, I hope they didn’t put the animals down, did they put them in shelters and take care of them?? Why don’t we ever hear what happens to these animals, after they are found? Me and my friends truly want to know, please don’t leave us hanging, I pray you don’t put them to sleep.

  10. That’s what happens when you give POS like her another chance ONLY giving her a MISDEMEANOR and letting her keep the animals. Animal cruelty is a FELONY, that law passed awhile ago. So hopefully you charge her appropriately this time and NEVER have the right to own ANY ANIMAL AGAIN!!!! PLEASE !!!

  11. Carolyn J. Paurowski says:

    Please Stop This Kind Of Abuse Once & For All — Fine This Woman Severely & Put Her In Jail For A Very Long Time — It Is About Time This Stops. Do Not Allow Her Near Any Animals Or Allow Her To Keep Any Animals Or Pets. This Is Down Right Cruelty. She Is The One Who Deserves To Be Put In A Cage — Jail Time With Limited Food & Drink SO She Can See Her Karma Up Close & Personal. Also Please Make Sure These Animals Are Taken In By The ASPCA Or Other Humane Animal No-Kill Shelter And Put Up For Adoption Elsewhere So They Can Never Be Abused By Her Again. Do You Job And Make Sure This Culprit Does Not Just Get A Slap On The Wrist. This Is Animal Abuse & Is Against The Law. Please Do The Right Thing To Help This Animals And Get Justice For Their Abuse!

  12. Ashamed to be human says:

    Throw the POS in a hole in the ground & leave her there with no food or water & in her own crap, let her rot. She deserves to feel exactly the same her victims did, its called KARMA.

  13. Evan Jane Kriss says:

    Prosecute to the fullest extent of the law for EACH COUNT of animal abuse. Make her PAY ALL VET BILLS to restore these animals to full health. BAN her from EVER purchasing, owning, caring for or working with ANY animals ever again. And STARVE HER and make her LIVE IN HER OWN WASTE.

  14. I agree with all the above responses. Some humans should never have been born…they are mean to everyone and everything. I am sick of animal abusers and am still waiting for a state-by-state registry of animal abusers, who should NEVER have any animal again. Throw this POS in jail and let her rot!

  15. Debra Broach says:

    This is what happens when the law let pieces of crap out on probation. MY GOD where are the neighbors? There are no people around that hear noises or are suspicious? Its impossible to keep those many animals quiet all the time. No one heard anything? Now jail her ass this time with NO DAM PROBATION! Better yet put her in a cell with orhers like her and let them rot in their each others waste and filth. Nothing is going to change with these punks until you start treating them like they treat their victims. Animals are always suffering and paying the price for those brainless, useless idiots. Also get rid of the dam puppy mills. Too many animals, meaning people aren’t caring and are neglecting and abusing those sweethearts. I blame the laws!

  16. Patricia Williams says:

    67 Animals then you 67 Felonies! And more for the dead! And the starving! Prosecute Prosecute Prosecute to the Max. Take any and all property and put up for auction to pay for their rehab and medical care. And NEVER let this POS near another animal. Punish so they remember! Not a slap on the wrist. These animals Suffered. Give her a taste of it. She deserves it, they didn’t.

  17. Margie Smith says:

    There is no jail kind enough for this person…Lock her up in her own filth…that’s what she deserves.

  18. Shirley Lemieux says:

    Kami Marie Reihmans past should speak volumes. She is a repeat criminal and at the expense of innocent lives. How is this animal abuser even allowed to have pets given her history? This is a good example of why we need a public database of previously charged animal abusers so that the pubic can be the eyes and ears for innocent animals that end up in the hands of previously convicted animal abusers.


  20. Lock the idiotic bitch and her loved ones inside in a tiny cage with 20% oxygen, no light, food and water… let them all die a slow death. This is justice!!!!!
