These situations suck all of the way around: the animals suffer the most, the community suffers because lots of tax dollars are wasted on everything from legal expenses, staffing and administrative fees all associated with the cost of investigating her, trying and convicting her, siezing animals and managing her probation. Not to mention the cost of animal rescue and rehabilitation and the blight to the property where the animals were kept, which hurts the whole community and brings down property values. But then comes the cost burden to the tax payers for either imprisoning her or hospitalizing her. I Agree, she needs to be jailed, that's the only way to stop her from getting more animals. Others involved, need to be punished for accessory to her hoarding as her getting others to keep them is violating her probation by circumventing the system. It is unfortunate that she has not been fully held accountable for her actions. A win-win solution would be to lock her up with no shelter, food or water, no socialization or medical care either. (But we cannot do that nowadays) The tax payers wouldn't have to support her and she would actually be receiving punishment for her crime. After all, that would be no different than what she did to those poor creatures.
