Gotta love the Pritchard also said that he didn't believe anyone acted with malicious intent.

Now, now folks - I'm guessing they wanted this to stay pushed up under the proverbial "Sssshhhh" rug......

A (Biased) Outsider Looking In

I'm sure Mr. Joe did find "bias" in those complaining -


I'm 'biased', too - anytime an animal is abused, neglected or otherwise treated in a less than humane manner, I'm biased as all get out against the person(s) allegedly responsible.

But I'm just as "biased" against county officials who would rather blame the complainant than address the complaint.

Hmmm first it was investigated by the DEA, then the Ga Dept of Ag, then the county, PETA was contacted, the Humane Society was contacted, now the Sheriff's dept at what point does this become harassment. Personally I'm beginning to think this is a bunch of crap, let's shop around for the results we want. Maybe the people making the accusation aren't reliable

Susan Leavens

Who said it was being investiated by the Sheriffs dept? Concerned Citizen... it appears you also have a defensive attitude and thats ok I understand. HOWEVER GDA is a reglatory agency... not an investigative/prosecuting agency (Ithink thats obvious with there pass fail paper work)! I am very reliable and so are the other people who have written statements ;)Personaly... I have been threatened, along with other employees, and the humane society... its not that theres not enough evidence.. its because they wanted up to be quit... shhhhh I have a memo stating such. And its obvious your in the catagory of "Its just and animal how cares" again... PAPER WORK DOESN'T LIE, the only thing is this is a reoccuring problem huh its your opinion and your allowed to have it!
I assure you if one "citizen" in Lowndes County would have commited one of the offensives in my statement they would have been punished to the fullest extent of the law... I guess it just makes a difference of you live in Lowndes or work for Lowndes!

Yes paperwork does make a difference, that's why people who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones

curious bystander

i apologize if my information is incorrect, so you are saying charges have NOT been filed with the Lowndes County Sheriffs department?

The information listed in your "memo's" are merely information stated by you or someone else. Just simply because you have a "memo" with this information in it does NOT make it factual. It is merely comments voiced, whether they be truth or fiction. As far as the events stated in the articles that I have read and knowing the employees at the animal shelter, I know full well that no abuse has ever been committed, unless it was done by the individual voicing all the allegations. Maybe she is trying to redirect attention away from her? Maybe she is a "disgruntled employee" because she was transferred to another department and was unable to obtain the job positions from prior employees that she personally had a hand in firing. It's easy to get people to side with you when you "appear" to have an animals best interests at heart and make false allegations that these employees did these things in an attempt to avenge the fact you didn't get the job position you wanted. May God have mercy on you and hopefully give your soul peace in order that you can live in peace and happiness. You obviously are a very angry and unhappy person. I feel sorry for you.

LIFETIME CITIZEN

concerned citizen

I agree with you, I thought this was America where you are innocent till proven guilty. As far as I know, nobody has been formally charged in this case but most of the people here act like they are guilty because of the accusations of a couple of people, they say they have evidence but the only evidence I have seen is their statements. The statements of a couple of individuals does not make them guilty that is for the courts to decide.

Lowndes Area Knowledge Exchange

Dear shouting citizen, anybody can post pretty much anything here, but when you pretend to be several people and you're not, that makes you a sock puppet.
Dear concerned, the only previous use of the word "guilty" in comments about the animal shelter was regarding a horse owner found guilty in state court. As for evidence regarding the shelter, perhaps you missed this post:

No I did not miss that post, but still nobody has been formally charged and everybody is acting like they are the scum of the earth. Maybe you should read the comments to the posts on your forum. The last I checked you are innocent till proven guilty and there are a lot of comments on this site that employees should be fired, and they are taking the the word of one employee who I might add sounds like a disgruntled employee as gospel with no proof.

FLED UP CITIZEN

I am tried of this mess get another job and move on if you where so tried of the mess going on why did you wait 5 years to come forward seems to me as you are upset about something that did not go your way. If I seen cruety from day one I would have quick my job then not try to screw my way to the top, I guess since your boss is a woman it didn't work this time. Good luck with you new job all trash need to be together and you do not want to know who I am have been waiting for this moment to tell you how I feel.

JustB Happy

Well, Ms. Leavens. It appears are others on to your little ruse. Looks like you need to get a life and move on. Not to mention as a couple posts further up stated, if you were aware of this for 5 years and did nothing........doesn't that make you as guilty as the ones you are accusing? Hmmm..... Food for thought.

An Outsider Looking In

"Others" ?

"Others" meaning the various posts (under different names, or course) that are mere minutes apart from one another?

Hmmm..... Food for thought, indeed.

curious bystander

could the posts be by people who reside in the same household? separate entities that use the same email? no, i am sure that everyone has different ip addresses, and can afford different servers...why is it made to seem that EVERYONE is corrupt? there may be a reason for the different names...or i suppose they could be crooked, why not ask rather than accuse? or does the truth not really matter?

SOCK PUPPETS, thanks for the cool name

JSQ, dont call me names, because my family wants to use my computer as well as me, we all are lifetime citizens,im not rich like you, im far from a sock puppet, you love people like leavens because she put her name on a post, why dont you check her out,like your checking everyone else,either way, it does not matter because the sock puppets do the work, the puppet masters as they seem to be, only complain, sounds like you like doing that.Why dont you get off your duff and use your time wisely, fix the problems instead of complaining.Never see you down at the animal shelter helping out,stop complainingdrop the puppet strings and grab a litter pan, pick up some poop, instead of spreading all the BULL S--T. Y ou and leavens and this ganas guy need to get a life, live it, do something productive, like the previous person said you cant screw your way to the top, sometimes you actually have to work.

Susan Leavens

Like I have said I have nothing to hide whateveer name you choose to hide behind. You can call them what you want, say as you wish, I have not said any name in any of these blogs or said anything derogatory about anyone nor will I. You can have your opinion but your not even talking about the actual issue your only attacking me and if it makes you feel better then have at it. I know your irritated and thats ok too. I have nothing to hide, you can say what ever you please... if your anger because I told then so be it, but the blog postings are about the issues (or should be atleast) but it seems your more incline to try to discredit those od US who tried to do the right thing. Its ok it will all come out in the end. CRUELTY-NEGLECT-INHUMANE TREATMENT its all in there. I will stand by what I said...sorry I will not fall for the slander and what not your addressing at me personally it doesn't bother me. My interest are only in getting this matter moving forward.
Susan Leavens :)

curious bystander

so if there is not enough "evidence" to charge or convict those you are alleging to have done these heinous things, you will admit you were mistaken? the burden of proof lies with you, and i hope it IS there, but if not i again ask are you willing to admit YOU were wrong??? if a court finds them not guilty are you willing to acknowledge that or will you merely cry foul yet again and try to prosecute them through state, federal or other ways?

SOCK PUPPET,as your supporters call me

There is no anger coming from me, putting large caps, does not mean anger,and as far as name calling, i am now a sock puppet by the people that claim to support you, i state my opinion and, my family members do the same, and your supporter starts the name calling, ms leavens your still going up the chain of command as you stated before, im trying to figure out what your trying to accomplish, when will it all end, if the cruelty at the shelter was so bad why did you take the animals to the shelter,you have a lot of supporters here, HUMANE SOCIETY, they could have helped by getting the vet care out to where the animals were, im sure if they put there funds up the vet would have taken and treated the animals, all the stuff your accusing people of, it seems like you set them up, so you could get this stuff started, between you and the other guy neither one of you could not save the animals from the county shelter, we all know those animals were in better care than being where they were, why are you gonna pick up all these animals and take them some place that you claim they will be tortured, beaten, stabbed, please. all lies, but like you said the man upstairs will deal with you later, in the end, he knows who is telling the truth, and we all make mistakes sometimes, and he is a forgiving god, remember that.

An Outsider Looking In

Like Ms. Leavens, I have very little tolerance for people that choose to abuse or neglect animals.

And I don't much care "who" the alleged abuser may or may not be - that's not why I choose to speak out. What matters if that IF those stray/unwanted animals are in the temporary (and most times, final) custody of any person, or persons, who may not be providing them with the humane care that they are afforded, per state law - and/or abusing them, which is against state law - then the legal process should be allowed to move forward to determine the outcome.

It is my understanding, from numerous sources, that it was at the county level where the brakes were put on regarding this case. i.e. alleged threats and intimidation, employees getting transferred to other departments, etc.

As with my low tolerance for animal cruelty, I have equal low tolerance for county or state govt. corruption.
