Animal Hoarder On Vacation

(Roswell, New Mexico) Animal hoarder Mary Jane Lyle, 71, couldn't just leave her precious kitties when she traveled to Arizona from her home in Minden, Michigan, so she piled them into a U-Haul truck and hit the road. In Roswell, after the local police stopped her for a broken taillight and found 61 sick and 2 dead cats inside the truck, Lyle was arrested for animal cruelty.

Lyle has been charged with 61 counts of animal cruelty and faces a possible 12 to 18 months in prison on each count. According to Joseph Pacheco, Animal Control Supervisor, all of the cats will likely be euthanized.

Interestingly, Lyle wasn't charged for the two dead cats, only the ones she kept alive. And now she's in jail and the authorities are going to kill the cats. Odd, isn't it?
