Shannon Ambrose and I got into an argument over it all. She wanted me to sign a statement stating that I would throw my not fully feathered chicken out side and not allow our yellow lab back in the house (who was a house dog). I refused to do so, it was winter and it was 17 degrees outside. I told her you never put a chicken that is not fully feathered in the cold it would kill her. She later made the remark "any chicken in my house better be in a pot". She and the sheriffs got a laugh but it angered me, Mazzie was my baby and I was not about to put her life in danger for a childish caseworker to get her way. She then said that if I didn't sign that paper that she would make my kids state wards. Do you see how they use things against you to get their way? Well let it be known, and I told the caseworker that took over after the caseworker got her open case, that the entire time I was not supposed to have Blondie or Mazzie in the house, I not only had them in the house but I had Sofie my cat, Kenya my adoption cat and Kenya's 7 kittens (because animal control didn't come back and get her and she got pregnant) in the house. I asked this caseworker if she ever knew I had that many animals in the house through an open case, her chin dropped to the floor and said no, there was never any sign of an animal in my house. CPS had a therapist in my house every 10 days for 6 months (not for therapy but we believe as a mole, all he talked about was when we were going to put Parker in public school and what we were going to do if we got new animals, nothing was ever talked about that a therapist would discuss under the reasons he was there).
Now lets move on to why I was raided. CPS in 2010 said they would dismiss their case against us if we could PROVE we medically took care of the cats. I provided them with as many vet bills as I could find at that time, I had a total of $1500 for an 18 month period. With that CPS dismissed the case. So why were my cats never returned to me? No charges were ever brought forth, so I sought out to find out why, that is when I found out that Bruce LaHue lied and illegally stole my cats, he also coerced me into surrendering Parker's ducks. I have a written statement that says the ducks were in a cage with 18 inches of feces. Come on people, put that picture in your head. Yes, my ducks were in a shed in a 4 foot long cage (large dog crate) because it had snowed, I put them in there because I hate seeing them trying to walk and their little feet get so cold they have to keep sitting on them, so I put them in the shed to keep them warm. There was a mound of FROZEN poo that was NO WHERE near 18 inches thick maybe 1/2 an inch which was hay and frozen poo, not just poo, but think about it, it was 17 degrees outside, what the heck was I supposed to do with the frozen poo???? Anyway, this so called animal control officer that those of you think is god to our animal control adopted out Parker's ducks but murdered all 15 of our cats because he could not get abuse charges on me I suppose. He said in court he murdered my cats because I never returned for them. However, he told me on January 14, 2010 a bench warrant would be issued for my arrest and then I could go in front of the judge and see about getting my cats back. I felt there would be no issue in getting them back, however, it is 3 years later and I am still waiting on that bench warrant to see the judge about these cats. Those cats were murdered in cold blood! Candace's cat was 10 years old, Josh's cat was 7 years old, Parker's cats were 7 years old and 18 months old. Candace had Toulouse since he was 12 weeks old, Josh had Nemo since he was 6 months old and Parker's very first cat was Simba who he adopted when Simba was 14 weeks old and Parker found Saliary at 12 weeks old at a truck stop, in between a building and a semi because someone dumped her and her sister (for those of you local it is the gas station at the corner of 135 and Quarry Road across from Shell). Now their cats are dead, tell me how you think your kids would fair if they had their pets ripped away from them and didn't even get to say goodbye or even bury them. My kids have not gotten over this and will probably never will!
Because of this I filed a tort claim against Bruce LaHue for the illegal seizure, the commissioners for hiring him and negligence in training and the county council for keep funding his need to illegally steal peoples animals,etc. In true abuse situations yes I agree, but if it is minor situation a pet owner deserves the right to rectify whatever needs done, but he should NEVER EVER EVER lie to a judge just to get his way. So I took the steps to sue them and CPS. I cannot put much about that here, because that will come out in my criminal hearing. However I know for a fact that it just did not happen the way it did, it was planned out for months, it involved at least 4 other people that I know of and it did not happen they way they want you to believe it happened. Their timing of my flooded basement and how busy we had been was just perfect timing for them to dream up the story they told to the public.
Now, lets talk about all the defamation LaHue has thrown out there as well as the prosecutor and the odd things of it all.
First off there was no poo on any bed in my house. If they have pictures of that like Otto Shalk has said then there are 2 sets of pictures of the beds in my house, how is that possible? Pictures were taken by more than Bruce LaHue and not one of the photos taken of my bed, Parkers bed or Josh's bed has any poo on it, they did not take pictures of Candace's bed. So that is lie number 1 proved wrong. That my floors were covered in feces. Again, that is another lie. Yes, as I have said before there was cat poo on my kitchen floor by the back door which is located by a litter box. My floors were not covered in feces as a matter of fact you can count the poos. They lie stating that the litter boxes were overflowing with feces, another lie, I have pix showing litter boxes that did need to be scooped after 5 1/2 hours of being staked out, but you could also see the FRESH cat litter in both of the litter boxes that they took pix of (yes there was more than just 2 litter boxes, when they arrived I was upstairs cleaning the upstairs litter boxes), their was 3 litter boxes in the main bathroom that are used very little and since they had all the doors open in the house those were used also, however they had just a few poos in 1 and lots of urine in another. My house was staked out and therefore I had to stop doing my daily cleaning so the litter boxes on the main floor were not able to be tended to as they normally would had been that day. The same thing would occur in any shelter setting if normal cleaning processes were interrupted.
Let's talk about why you THINK my kids were detained when they weren't. Even the caseworker said "we are not detaining the children", but see LaHue doesn't want you to hear that, he wants it to sound as bad as he can make it sound. I told the caseworker my house was a mess because our basement had been flooded since September. Our sump pump burned up and we had to wait on another one to come in, we finally got it drained and started cleaning it. This can be verified by church. Oct 1, 2011 we moved Josh to the living room to get him out of the dampness and the mildew, I didn't want him getting sick. On weekends we would bring stuff up stairs to be washed up and stored away. I would work on that during the week to have the house back to normal by Saturday to start all over. I told her that the day before I was gone all day and Candace and Parker were supposed to do their chores. Their chores consists of giving me 10 minutes of their day every day to help maintain our house. Parker's job is to tend to the litter boxes on the main floor and take out the garbage on Thursday evenings. Candace's job is to keep the appliances washed down, counters and table cleaned off and to sweep the kitchen floor and the bathroom floor. Josh's job is to do the dishes and keep the living room straightened up. Since Josh had an event after school the day before the raid and I had to go back to the animal hospital to pick up meds, had to help a lady with a cat situation she had, and I had to go see about getting my van fixed, Candace and Parker were supposed to have their chores done so when Josh and I got home we'd be able to get ours done before bedtime. I walked in at 10:30 pm to a house of undone chores. This angered me because they knew we needed to get the house back to its normal state to get the house ready for Christmas decorations which was a week away. I went to get the kids up, but education to me is more important than housework. So I went to do the chores myself and I decided I wasn't going to let them take advantage of me, they hate doing chores, but I pay them to do chores and me doing their chores is just enabling them to keep taking advantage of me and I wasn't going to do it. My kids are at an age taking things away from them does nothing but get them out of doing chores. They don't care what punishment they get as long as they do not have to do the chores. Knowing this, when they get in a rut like this (and they are kids, they do) I give them 3 days to do their chores on their own, if they don't, that 4th day they are either grounded and things taken away or the one they hate, they have to do the undone chores and other chores on top of that. Usually they never let it get that far. The caseworker fully understood that and told me, that the kids can stay at the house and clean but she would prefer if they slept somewhere else. I told the caseworker we could have the house cleaned up that night, she said that was fine. An hour later she came in and told us her boss, (who is the same supervisor that I have a lawsuit against from the 2010 case) said no they are not allowed to clean it is not their place to clean our house. I told her I disagree with that, that it was their house too, she said she did also. This is the very same argument that I had with him in 2010 when he told me I had to clean my kids bedrooms, which I disagreed with. So we sent the kids to stay the night with their friends. So once again, CPS has taught my kids they do not have to be responsible and do not have to do as their parents tell them. However, because of it they are now guilt ridden, over something that would had happened if the house was spotless or completely a mess.
Now on to the floors. My floors were dirty, I'm not gonna lie, but they were dirty because we were bringing up things from the basement that had stuff on them and it would fall off while being drug through the kitchen to the trash or to the tub, etc. You must remember we had 6-8 inches of water in the basement. The basement had Candace's old bedroom in it, Josh's bedroom, Randell's work room and a storage area for every ones stuff when the rooms above were too full, it always went to the basement. With this boxes got waterlogged, clothes, toys, etc. When the sump pump broke we tried to get the water out by hand but it would just come back in. That is why we gave up, we told Josh he needed to move all his stuff upstairs, his tv, computer, guitar, X Box, school supplies, everything had to be moved to our small living room until we could get the basement fixed. Then from that so did everything else, our goal, once we got the basement drained, was to completely empty out the 32 x 33 basement and in spring get it completely fixed. Things began to get splashed on, got dirty, mildewed, etc. So we brought up what we could salvage first. Some things were bagged in the basement for garbage day somethings were taken to the living room, to the kitchen, to the main bathroom, to the master bedroom all to be cleaned up and put away while other things that were so water logged we left in the basement to literally drain such as the blankets off Josh's bed, some clothes, stuffed animals, etc. By the time of the raid a lot of the stuff was still sitting out because we had recently been busy running kids where they needed to be, running cats to the vet, etc. But by no means was the house in the condition in what the media states and by no means have I ever denied that my house wasn't a mess, but tell me how quickly are you going to be able to respond to an act of god in such a manner and still do running for your kids, your pets and deal with a stomach bug for 6 days on top of it.
Let's talk about the so called smell of my house. If my house was so bad why did no one where a hazmat suit? Why did they wait 6 days to test the ammonia level in my house? It was all a ploy to make it look worse than it was. There is more I can write here about the "smell" of my house but I can't due the legality.
Everyone left around 10:00 pm on November 17, 2011 and my house was clean with 24 hours ( includes sleeping hours).
Here are pix of my house as it normally would be in normal circumstances..........
The horrid basement that caused all the problem that no one can understand....
For those of you that do not know what the BCS is, I have posted the chart below that shows you what a cat would look like.
Kenya was the only cat with an active URI and she was seen by her vet on Monday November 14, 2011 and was put on Clavamox. Kenya was in a cage.
Chargheera started sneezing and coughing on Tuesday November 15, 2011, I immediately started her on Clavamox also.
Mufasa started sneezing and coughing on Wednesday November 16, 2011, I immediately started him on Clavamox too.
On November 16, 2011 when the vet called me about Kenya's bloodwork I told her about Chargheera and Mufasa and asked her if she could give them a bottle of their own Clavamox as it seems as though they are coming down with it. She said "legally I can't do that but I can prescribe Kenya a refill and ok you to give it to the cats that need it". So I was ok with that. I then asked her what I do about all the other cats since it seems like it is spreading. She said I could order a bottle of L Lysine and give it to all of them and hopefully that will prevent it from getting to everyone. She said she didn't have any on hand but it would be in Thursday or Friday. So I told her to order it for me. It came in on Friday and because of the defamation she refused to sell it to me. L Lysine isn't a prescription but a dietary supplement that helps ward off upper respiratory infections, but I was refused it.
Here is a photo showing the cats the day of the raid marked with their names, look for Chargheera and Mufasa so you can see what they looked like I know the photo is blurry but if you can tell you will see they were not sick looking either. Chargheera is the black and white cat in my Logo photo and was also shown on WHAS 11 news along with Diamond.
Let's get to that point shall we??? I gave them nearly $100 worth of medication for the cats with the URI and the cats that were being treated for coccidia. I filed an injunction on November 30, 2011, no charges had been brought forth as of this date, no animals were reported dead except for Diamond who was taken off her anti seizure medication, put on something else then euthanized. Why?? Well maybe it was because I asked for Diamond to be monitored because she was being monitored while in my care and he refused to have anyone watch her to make sure she did not miss her medication, make sure she did not seize, etc. I told him, (LaHue) if anything happened to that cat I would sue him. So you see, she was the first one he killed. The injunction was filed on November 30, 2011 and was received by LaHue on December 2, 2011. Between 12/2/11 and 12/16/11 it was reported 4 cats died and my husband and I were charged with child neglect and 4 counts of animal neglect for these cats not receiving veterinary care. Tell me how this is even possible. Of the 4 sick cats (Kenya, Chargheera, Mufasa and Tippsy) I know for a fact that Chargheera and Tippsy are alive, that means 2 of the well cats are dead!
So now let's address the comment that the white dog was in a cage too small for her. First off the dog was a pup, she was in a training crate that was big enough for her. She too was clean, she had food and water, she had ripped open the dog bed I gave her. She was in a training crate on the front porch because Brownie the Chocolate lab has food aggressions that I had been trying to break and I was not in the position to feed them together so Bindie was fed in her crate. I can't allow Bindie to run loose and I can't put Bindie in the 10 x 10 pen with Brownie if they are not being tended too while they are eating. If anyone knows anything about potting training a dog you know you don't crate them in a cage too big. This is Bindie's photo taken the day of the raid.......
Other defamation came from Otto Shalk who said "They saw fecal matter all over the floor and black mold covering the walls," I already explained the floors, again there was not black mold covering the walls. There was MILDEW on the walls in the main bathroom from where we had taken the wallpaper off the wall in order to paint and because of things that were more important so we were delayed in doing that. Candace had went to wipe it off and I told her not to until I got face masks, just as a precaution, I didn't want her breathing in anything that would make her sick washing it off the walls. But it was not black mold, here is a key point for you to think about regarding the black mold. If they would not allow the children back in the home until they did an ammonia test then why would they allow the children back in without testing the "mold" as there was mold in the basement from the leak, that was never tested or if it was, it was clearly not black mold. Secondly if it was black mold we'd all had been sick, no one was sick. In the bathroom the mildew was not on the entire walls it was on the glue only, not on the paper left on the wall but the glue on the wall.
Another thing Shalk said..." 34 cats lived inside the home without adequate food and water." That is a lie too, I had bought a brand new bag of cat food that morning, I believe it was a 17 pound bag, and they had a large dog waterer for their water that one of the cops knocked over, in their own photos shows a picture of the water and I have a photo of the bag of food they had. Not to mention, I live 15 minutes from Wal Mart, so I see no need to stock pile food in my home if I can just run to Wal mart to pick up a bag or 2 as needed.
Cops said outside the home, dogs and chickens were found without food. That is a lie also, so now we have to free feed all our animals? Won't that cause a major obesity problem? Are we no longer allowed to refill water bowls as needed?
Taken from WHAS 11...........Some of the animals were also in cages that were too small and they were covered in feces. I think I have proven that. Kenya was in a cage, the kittens were in a cage, Bindie was in a cage, the 2 feral cats were in a carrier and the chickens were in a cage, NONE were covered in feces.
Taken from Wave 3 ........... Authorities say a child slept on a soiled mattress. That is another lie, although I don't know what they mean by a "soiled" mattress. The only photo they have of a childs bed is Parker's bed which was full of blankets and stuffed animals and Josh's bed in which he wasn't using and is an adult and no one had slept in that room since the first of October.
"There was animal feces on flat surfaces of the floor. You had to be careful where you walked because most of the animals had diarrhea and the floor was very slippery in most places," LaHue told WAVE 3. That is a lie. First off, "flat surfaces of the floor" aren't all surfaces of a floor flat? Secondly they were zipping through the house like giddy children in which it caused them to knock over the waterer. There was no "slippery" areas except where they spilled the water. Also no cat had diarrhea, 3 had a loose stool and loose stools are NOT diarrhea.
Pictures show clothes covered in both feces and mold. That is a lie, the pictures show sludge on the 6 clothe items on the kitchen floor to either be tossed or washed. Again, look at the pix of the basement, imagine that on personal belongings. It was, should I toss or should I try to salvage.
"The condition of the house was atrocious. It would be what most people would consider to be unlivable," LaHue said. That is one persons opinion, if it was so bad the house wouldn't had been cleaned up within 24 hours, the health department would had condemn it, etc.
"The arrest report of Randall and Samantha Lee also says a young child was living in the filth, forced to sleep on a soiled mattress, pictures show," There are no pictures showing this. As I proved earlier the TWO youngest kids were 17 and 14. The "authority" said there was nothing wrong with Candace's room and Parkers bed is posted below.
Neighbors say they knew something was up by the smell alone. "We smelled manure on our front porch a lot." The neighbors who don't want to be identified is Patty (and Greg) Mauck. They knew nothing was wrong, they smelled manure on their front porch because we had horses, we live in the country. This is also the same neighbors that told Parker if he didn't keep his MFING dog out of his yard he was going to kill her. Parker was 12 at the time. Brownie and Parker were playing and they whistled and Brownie went over there, the normal reaction of most dogs, Parker was seconds behind her to get her before she even went into the street but she is fast. That is why our dogs are in kennels for their safety even though they have been trained to stay in the yard.
Again per Wave 3.........Four felines had to be put to sleep. This is odd, other sources reported 4 cats died, so which is it?
"The case started when a woman changed her mind an hour after trusting Lee to watch her two cats while the woman recovered from the flu." This too is a lie, this case started because Jeri Warren supposedly was told to get rid of the 7 feral cats she was feeding, but here is a question, why does the trailer park still have TONS of cats? Why was she singled out to get rid of these cats? Why is it when I offered to help her keep these cats she refused? She knew I was taking the feral cats to a feral colony, they were not part of my rescue, I was just being a compassionate person helping a woman not get evicted (as she told me would happen). I have an email proving this statement is a lie and I have a name behind that email also.
Tinkerbelle as I have posted on Facebook many times was left behind. This is Tinkers story of it all.
We miss our pets horribly and nothing was so bad here that justifies the seizure of our pets and the death of the 4 or 5 cats and the 1 chicken that died nearly a year into animal controls care. This is not about neglecting children, animals, your duties as a parent, animal care taker, home owner, this is about 1 persons vendetta to shut me up. You see if I am in jail I can't expose the corruption between Bruce LaHue and Shannon Ambrose, how Dale Stroud backed Shannon Ambrose when he knew my house was clean and how the commissioners were put on warning and did nothing to stop him retaliating against me for filing a tort claim. So if I go to jail, it will surely be a way of shutting me up. If that happens, people have access to all the documents that I won't provide until after court, with that, that information will be posted here.
My husband and I are innocent, my family are victims of government corruption and it is only a matter of time before you are next.
