Warden forbids guards saving kittens after mom was trapped and killed.
Warden says it’s “none of your concern.”
Please call prison at (254) 865-8431 and urge them to allow kittens to be saved after mom was murdered!
Update: from fb page KathysKitties
1. CALL! Please call 936.437.6318 and POLITELY ask Mr. William Stephens (Deputy Director, Prison & Jail Operations) to urge the Gatesville warden to stop killing TNR cats, and work with the numerous TX animal groups offering to help with Trap-Neuter-Return, adoption of friendly cats/kittens. Fleas are easily treated by sprinkling flea powder on lounging/sleeping areas. Again, be POLITE to Mr. Stephens, he is NOT the warden, but we’re asking him to talk to her about this senseless killing.
2. EMAIL! Write Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott: firstname.lastname@example.org Ask him to please investigate animal cruelty charges against Gatesville warden Loretta Carmona, to include leaving cats in traps during the severe storms/hail/flooding last Monday night. Guards are documenting cats being left in traps and exposed to the elements without food/water for 18+ hours. Newborn kittens left to starve (see below), intimidating employees who try to help, threats of discriminatory action for speaking out against the warden’s animal cruelty.
3. CALL Gatesville Animal Control 254-865-2226 ask them to stop wasting taxpayer dollars when area animal groups have offered to help the Gatesville prison unit with no-cost Trap-Neuter-Return. Ask them to please check for microchips before destroying the cats, and please let rescue groups pull the eartipped TNR cats at no charge.
4. CALL WARDEN CARMONA at 254-865-8431 and urge her to work with local animal groups that have offered their help, free of charge to the prison, to TNR the remaining cats at no cost to the prison, rehome the friendlier cats, and find homes for the kittens. Remind her that flea issues can be resolved without killing the cats. Tell her she is wasting taxpayer dollars, and the public will not stand for her senseless killing of cats. It’s bad for the prison’s image in Central Texas, and we know what she’s doing!!!
