The more I look at these stories about the Turner case the more upset I get.
I went back with all of the records that I have gotten as well as the records that I was given.I get so nervous when I think about this case coming to an end… The 2 surviving horses & the pig Quinn, will most likely be sold to slaughter. Who knows what will become of the Danes & the Cattledog.
I can only imagine if Ms Turner thinks about the same thing…When I seen the pictures & read all the crappy newspaper reports I thought what everyone else did: GUILTY, fry the witch. But now that I know how these people operate & about all the corruption & bull that goes on I had to look deeper, I do that in every case.
I did manage to talk to Ms Turner to ask her a few questions I still had, I’m pretty sure she is sick of me by now but she answers the questions. The picture that haunts me is of the Danes, Raja the female is so skinny, Nemisis isn’t far behind her. Yet the other animals besides Carlos are all fine including her Roosters & Rabbits. I personally went down there & seen them.
Me being me I asked her what the hell happened with Raja, & told her those pictures are going to destroy any defense she might have ever had. She finally snapped at me & said she was trying to get help from those people (Animal Services & HAROTC) she said something to me that really struck a cord: She said “Look at those pictures” I said I was, then she said “You only have to look at those pictures, I had to live that every day, to see my babies go through it, these are dogs I had for 7 years, I had to see it every day & everything I tried wasn’t working & when I reached out & asked for help my babies were taken from me & I probably won’t see Raja before she dies of old age”
I was re-reading the story in the Olympian & asked them to report the whole story… I don’t know if they will, I don’t believe they will, but at least they stopped doing a story every week if the dogs coughed farted or sneezed, as a matter of fact I haven’t seen them do another story, but the damage is done, her name, address & age are out there & the damage has been done.
It is just sad that the people from Animals Services & HAROTC lie in wait for people to reach out to them & then crush them & destroy their lives for asking for help. All for the sake of a few hundred pounds of meat money at the slaughterhouse, & 10K they think the Judge is going to award them. I mean every raid brings in 10 to 16K so we don’t have to ask ourselves what motivates them, nor do we have to ask why it will keep happening.
To prove my point about the collusion that goes on in places like this let’s compare the Kitsap County Bailey Raid to the Thurston County Turner Raid. The
Kitsap County case was dropped because there was an HONEST judge who was not going to go along with all of the dirty dealings, Thurston & Kitsap both forfeited animals, & let animals die & be injured in their “care” but again the critical difference is that the Judge stood up for the LAW, he did the right thing… Too bad we can’t have him cloned.
In the Kitsap county situation it was simply the Animal Control that made the decision, then the prosecutor HAD to get on board, but the buck stopped at the Judge, that is how the system is supposed to work, there should be someone somewhere in there that does the right thing, but not in City of Everett, not in Thurston County, & not in Stevens County.
There are other cases I am working on as well in this state I haven’t written about yet. I have to work on about 20 other different things right now & try to make heads or tails of all of the paperwork, one woman sent me 12 big ring binders of paperwork!!!
Please pray for the Danes, the horses & for the pig, hopefully by this time next year the dogs won’t be dead & the horses & pig won’t be on someone’s dinner plate. This is such an ugly hateful world, I am sometimes ashamed to be called a human.

Two Great Danes described as “critically thin” two months ago after being seized from an Olympia-area residence have gained considerable weight and are recovering in foster homes, according to Animal Services officials.
