Animal Activist Sandy Lertzman Commits Suicide with 31 Dogs
We call for compassion rather than condemnation of the founder of the Animal Rights Foundation
There are some things you just don't want to write because they're so horrible there's no way to find anything nice or comforting or any kind of silver lining in them at all. The suicide of Sandy Lertzman, founder of the Animal Rights Foundation in Ohio, is one of those things. Last week, Lertzman and 31 small dogs were found dead in her garage, the engine of her car still running. There were prescription drugs in the car and a suicide note in the house. Lertzman was 62 years old.
