Long County GA Steps Up Harrassment and Tells Largest Animal Rescue to GET OUT.
This just in from Karen Talbot with Miracle Ranch. On September 21, 2013 at about 3pm Commissioner Gordon of Long County paid a visit to Miracle Ranch with a very nasty attitude! He approached Georgia Counts Pontikakis,The first thing he said when Georgia walked up to the truck was "I'm going to make sure ya'll have a Dec 1st dead line to get out at next meeting."
Commissioner Gordon repeated it several times in a very intimidating manner and told Georgia she had an attitude! Long County officials were all invited to the LARGEST rescue operation in Georgia state history on Oct 4 & 5 2013. The Pilot and Paws which transported and saved over 500 animals that weekend alone. This was all premeditated and they knew on October 8, 2013 they were going to simply kick us out. THIS IS HARASSMENT.
Karen has also been informed thru concerned citizens that additionally the county commissioners have now set up their own mailing address to fictitiously solicit donations on "relocating Miracle Ranch" (something we knew nothing about) and are lying about EVERYTHING. Callers to the commissioners office are being told to donate funds by sending checks to this address. Miracle Ranch and MOMS Rescue still have nothing in writing but continue to be threatened. Karen said "We fear on December 1, 2013 they will appear at our property and KILL ALL OUR DOGS! Don't think they will? Look at their pattern! LOOK AT THE LEVELS THEY HAVE STOOPED TO! We cannot let them kill all our dogs on December 1, 2013. PLEASE, we need to swamp their phones! How can they get away with this?
We teach our kids about bullying and it not being accepted BUT yet Long County is permitted to bully Miracle Ranch. Commissioner Gordon is related to the neighbor who has posted terroristic threats of gun violence on Facebook and he also owns a whole pack of hunting dogs close to our property that seem totally exempt from any rules per Long County! PLEASE DO NOT LET COMMISSIONER GORDON KILL ALL OUR DOGS ON DECEMBER 1, 2013 WE ARE BEGGING NOW FOR HELP!
