Newalla Woman Faces Felony Animal Cruelty Charges

7/12/07 -- Newalla, OK - A Newalla woman has been charged with three felony counts of animal cruelty after several dead and dying cats were found in her residence.

According to court records, on June 13th, investigators went to the home of Tamara Doner and her husband at 20101 SE 134th.

The investigators were following up on an animal cruelty complaint.

Allegedly, when they arrived and entered the residence, they immediately "smelled feces, urine and decomposing animals."

Reportedly, the investigators observed at least 5 cats that were dead and an "unknown amount of cannibalized cats in the hallway and bedroom."

Four kittens and one adult cat was removed from the residence and taken by investigators to a shelter for medical care. One kitten reportedly died soon thereafter.

Doner has been charged in Cleveland County with three felony cruelty of animals complaints.

Mr Bates, Thank you for splashing my name and problems on the Internet. Unless you know all of the facts, you have no business posting this type of thing on here!

My attorney has asked me to not divulge any details on the case, but I will beat these charges as certain things were out of my control even with someone else supposedly watching my home and my animals for me! As for the news broadcasts, you can be assured that I will see them in court once all of this is finished! Please remove the link to my case from your blog. Thank you very much.
Mrs John Doner

Actually, the only thing 'splashed' was what had already been made a public record.

I'd love to actually see someone who threatens to sue a TV station actually do it - but, alas, they never do.
