Why Animal Hoarder’s flock to Kern County…They can do NO wrong.
Charges dropped against animal hoarder found with 200 dead and dying animals Last Update: 8/06 9:01 pm Print Story | ShareThis The Tulare County District Attorney has released a woman who was found with more than 200 dead, sick and dying animals, many of which came from the Kern County shelter. Linda Baker-Corsigilia is out of jail after 200 or so sick, dying and dead animals were found at her Strathmore property a week ago. Kern County animal shelter employees became suspicious of the woman who frequently went to the shelter to supposedly rescue dogs and cats. Kern County Animal Control Director Guy Shaw says they became suspicious of the so-called rescuer because nothing about her fit the mold of a professional rescue operation. However, a bonafide group vouched for her when shelter called them. Still, Bakersfield animal shelter staff called Tulare County authorities to check it out. Officers found 200 dead and dying animals. About 40 animals were dead, some of which were decomposing in containers. Tulare County sheriff’s deputies said the DA wants the sheriff’s department to do more investigating before they will file animal cruelty charges. Corsiglia’s 16-year-old daughter was also taken into protective custody.
