This suffice to say is extremely distressing and aggravating even if you are not a dog person (as we are). Deanna saw this earlier today and was most upset and wanted me to cover it ASAP.
It is hard to fathom how this could have gone on for this long, in affluent Wolfeboro — the ‘Oldest Summer Resort in America’ and home to celebrities like Mitt Romney NOT to mention the world capital of heated driveways to avoid shoveling snow. Yes, to be fair the mansion is on a back road in a very secluded part of town.
I am very fond of Wolfeboro and my association with Wolfeboro goes back 26 years. Wolfeboro is a beautiful town and some of the nicest people I know either live or work there. So, I hate seeing stuff like this associated with Wolfeboro. There was a move to boycott Wolfeboro in 2014 because of its then openly racist police chief. But, that, luckily, is behind us now. But, there is still a dark cloud over Wolfeboro — the ‘unsolved’ murder of local mother Stacey Burns over 8 years ago! This horror as such is another black eye for Wolfeboro.
The police and all the associated agencies appear to have done well in terms of the rescue and the arrest. But, that still begs the question as to how this could have gone on for this long without anybody suspecting anything.
This sorry incident raises a number of issues and the need for some New Hampshire laws to be changed:
- Appears that the perpetrator of this evil, Christina Fay, despite her apparent wealth, will NOT be on the hook to pay for ANY of the huge costs that will be associated with taking care of these 84 dogs! That is wrong, wrong, wrong. The law should be changed, at once, to make sure that perpetrators are fully liable for all costs and that the State can go after all of their property.
- It appears that she managed to skirt the requirements for a Commercial Breeder License. That too is wrong. How can you have 84 dogs and still claim not to be a Commercial Breeder, That has to be looked into.
- Right now she has only been charged with two misdemeanors! 84-dogs and only two misdemeanors. That is NOT right.
