Dear District Attorney Lacey,

Seven dogs and a cat were allegedly neglected and abused, leading to visible injuries. Per a witness’ statement, the suspect beat one of the dogs in a parking lot.

Deputies with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station charged Gertrude Williamson with one count of animal cruelty after she allegedly beat one dog. Deputies searched Williamson’s van and reportedly found an additional six dogs and one cat. Two dogs suffered visible injuries, deputies stated, and the rest of the animals showed signs of neglect. Animal control took custody of the animals and their current condition is unreported. Deputies arrested Williamson and she has been released pending her hearing.

This malicious cruelty cannot go unpunished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.

    What a mean horrible woman! I hope she is punished to the fullest extent and received her karma one thousand fold.

  2. Put this woman in jail and ban her from life long animal adoptions. Post her name across Facebook so she is well known to the world. Horrific crime needs to be dealt with severely.

    • Jail is not for this kind of crime.She is a sycko travels with them, for what? To put her rage at any time on them. People do this with animals and other people who can’t defend, as their are cowards. This abusers need to be tortured and killed and really make sure they are really dead. That’s the only way. Animals are getting abused more and more of this sychos are left free to disseminate their heinous genes and to torture&kill animals and people as soon as they can. Death penalty needs to be for this crimes and many others.

    Awful lady. She needs to be charged and in jail. It is not right. No one deserves to be abused. Justice for animals. I love animals and don’t want them hurt, tortured, or killed nor do they need to be used for selfish and ugly reasons.
