What could have happened?

I don't know how long this link will stay active, the daily news has a tendency to archive things within 24 hours.

Lorri has been the director at the Humane Society Shelter for as long as I've had dealings with them, but I had heard of David Peace, and everyone agreed that he was a very good director with a boundless love for animals. For him to have so many animals living in these kinds of conditions pretty much just shocked everyone that knows him.

I wonder what could happen to a person to change them so much. It's a very, very sad article, with even sadder pictures, so use your own judgment

Mike, he must be ill, too ill to do a good job, and yet not wanting to give up. I think that's indicated by the fact that he kept dumping the litter box closer and closer, and finally in the house. He must have a physical problem. This is so sad.

That's very sad. He may have had an emotional or mental breakdown. He didn't want to give up, like Jeanie said, but was just too overwhelmed and I'm a little concerned about his well-being right now. He obviously loves animals, but something happened and it spiraled out of his control.

Poor, poor pups & kitties. At least now they may have a chance. Can't help but agree with Jeanie, Mr. Peace probably became too ill to properly care for the animals. I wonder how old he is.

Honestly, I have no idea. This is a new story and I haven't talked to anyone at the shelter about it, and they are probably getting calls from half the county so I'm not going to bother them. But he was director at the shelter at least longer than 10 years ago

I sounds like a hoarder type situation- he started out with good intentions, then gets so overwhelmed and it all goes downhill. At least that is what I am going to think for now- it will make it easier for me to deal with. I admit, I often use the Scarlett O'Hara school of reality- I will think ofit tomorrow.

I am glad that the animals have been saved.

How very sad, i guess it just got too much for him to handle and he was too ashamed to asked for help.

Sincerely, Krystle.
