From my friend Sia Barbi: SOS….#Spokane serial cat killer case>>I don’t believe in petitions, lobbyists and politicians say they hurt bills– if we had the same people that shared and signed petition write this email and call elected officials, this would move forward!
>>>>I need everyone, to write these elected officials SCRAPS, DA, and KHQ (wonderful) and tell them it is not safe that Spokane has deliberately allowed a dangerous serial cat killer loose in the community without warnings. Below is timeline of Spokane serial cat killing case, and how SCRAPS covered it up and sabotaged it deliberately, while he is still killing daily!

Subject: Attention: to the highest level of government for neglecting animal abuse case
To: Mayor ,
Cc: Wesley O’Dell, “Proszek, Ashley” , Nancy Hill , “Rapier, Francisca L.” ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Dear Mayor Condon and DA Larry Haskill,
Spokane residents, concerned animal lovers worldwide, and I have relentlessly tried to contact you and have yet to receive any response. Therefore, we have been advised to contact elected officials (included in cc). We believe you are allowing SCRAPS to deliberately sabotage and cover up this extreme animal abuse case, that experts have warned, can easily escalate to violent crimes against your citizens. Spokane city watch and neighborhood groups reached out to me because they believe you aren’t doing your job protecting the community and covering up the truth, which is concerning to all, especially because there are a lot of unsolved murder cases in your area. Spokane is rated 2nd highest crime reported in the nation. (…/spokane-ranks-high-on-ano…/). Everyone finds it curious, how no one could contact the DA in this, or even find this case, and had everything filter through SCRAPS, who admitted to blundering this case.

Here is my detailed timeline of the Spokane Serial Cat Killer case and how SCRAPS sabotaged this case and tried to cover it up:

Witness Kurtis Jones Tolliver met alleged cat killer.
Kurtis’s kitten, Lark, was stolen (kidnapped) by alleged cat killer, later that day.
Witness Danielle Shurbutt rescued Timmy from alleged cat killer, a kitten so severely injured by alleged cat killer squeezing him almost to death

Witness Jeff Jennings bravely rescued Lark, the kitten owned by witness Kurtis Jones Tolliver, back from alleged cat killer.
Wesley ODell, a Spokane resident, found the first tortured, dead kitten, strangled and wrapped in USB cords and called police, who referred him to SCRAPS (Spokane County Regional Animal Protection).
SCRAPS told Wesley that the little kitten that was brutally tortured to death, “was not a high priority“, and made connotation it “was only a cat”.

Wesley ODell, was desperate for help, since police and animal protection, (SCRAPS), turned him away, so he sought media to help catch kitten killer.
Local Spokane news (KHQ and KXLY) covered Wesley ODell’s story of finding the first tiny kitten, tied, tapped, strangled and brutally tortured to death.…/couple-finds-tortured-cat-in-north-spo… This media pressure inspired SCRAPS to suddenly appear concerned, and told the media and Wesley they would “investigate”. However, SCRAPS never made any calls, they never made attempts, searched for evidence, they only made Wesley a suspect.

Furthermore, SCRAPS never called or interviewed Wesley, they never asked to inspect the tortured kitten, they never posted any investigation, updates or anything about the kitten killing, when they promised Wesley and the rest of us they would. They didn’t even post warnings to local pet owners. Guardians, the witnesses and Wesley all complained that SCRAPS admitted to them that they accidentally appointed a novice investigator that destroyed all crucial evidence from day one.

Wesley ODell, frustrated with not getting any help or concern, voluntarily brought the dead little kitten to SCRAPS to see if they would investigate. They did not.
SCRAPS refused to call in police, like they have with previous animal abuse cases, like the Wallabies,…/.

Wesley ODell sought the help of the Barbi Twins who enlisted Guardians of Rescue, who:
put up a huge REWARD,
hired people to pass out posters and flyers,
hired a private investigator to collect evidence to present to the prosecutor.

Jasmine Young, the first witness to step forward, went to SCRAPS to give information about the alleged cat killer. SCRAPS handed her a form, made her feel like a suspect, and told her to go home and fill it out. She called Guardians of Rescue to give her information instead. She recognized witness Jessica Davis’s sweatshirt on tv local news with reward.

Mr Linder, another Spokane resident, found another tortured kitten, tied with USB cord. Again, SCRAPS did nothing, so Mr. Linder turned to the media for help, once again. Witness Jessica Davis identified her sweatshirt on the news story about the kitten victim wrapped in wire. Jessica proved it was her sweatshirt that was wrapped around kitten. Jessica identified other crucial evidence, like her phone cords, as well as identifying the alleged cat killer. She was the closet to the alleged cat killer, said she sees him regularly.

Guardians of Rescue Announced: this was a SERIAL CAT KILLER!
The cat killer’s abusive technique was to strangle with wire or USB cords and tie kittens up, and/or squeeze them to death after torturing them for days, breaking bones and jaw, according to witnesses and dead kittens.
Witness Kurtis Jones Tolliver had his kitten, Lark, stollen from alleged cat killer, and rescued by friend Danielle Shurbutt and Jeff Jennings , with a badly injured kitten victim, Timmy, who got a hernia from being squeezed almost to death in front of witnesses.

After hours and hours of a successful investigation, Guardians of Rescue found crucial witnesses to identify both the sweatshirt that was wrapped around the 2nd kitten, and the witnesses who identified the suspect. Guardians of Rescue also obtained audio from witness Jessica Davis, who supplied an email statement and audio of alleged suspect, talking about how he obtains his kitten victims. (Craigslist, Facebook, trapping)

5 more cats were found; 2 duct taped, one having USB wires, and 2 cats were rescued from cat killers car that he lived in, one was seriously injured from being squeezed causing internal damage, as described in this GoFund page by witness Kurtis Jone Tolliver:, who emailed a statement.

Any surviving kittens were killed by SCRAPS and never investigated or even documented.

Oct 31 Witness Jasmine Young and her friend Mandy rescued 2 kittens from alleged cat killer before he tried killing them, and suspect chased them down yelling to Jessica that he was going to “f*cking kill them”

Nov. 14th, alleged cat killer’s car was impounded with crucial evidence, including fecal material, dead cat remains or blood, cat traps, USB cords. SCRAPS never investigated the car or interviewed the suspect. They never interviewed the witnesses, except for witness Jasmine Young, who volunteered an audio statement.
Nov 21 Two kittens were found duct taped that were serial cat killer’s victims.…/scraps-investigating-four-tied-cat-cas….
Nov 17 The black calico cat victim was found by minor
Guardians of Rescue finally had all the evidence to present to prosector but were forced to go through SCRAPS, so they handed over all their evidence and witness’s information to SCRAPS. SCRAPS continued to stall investigation, not interviewing witnesses or accumulating any evidence of their own.

Wesley gave a statement to SCRAPS and asked them to post updates about the case on their website, and they agreed. They did not, so Wesley wanted to warn the community with the news…/witness-wants-spokane-cat-killer-caught.

SCRAPS made false accusations to Wesley and others, about Guardians, claiming they would not allow SCRAPS to use their evidence, so DA threw out the case because of lack of evidence.…/prosecutors-decline-charges…/409278853.
SCRAPS unprofessionally gossiped about Wesley ODell’s personal life to investigators. They discredited, discriminated and intimidated unfairly against the witnesses; they made false claims that Guardians would not get back to them or hand over their crucial evidence, and dismissed any good information given to them about the alleged cat killer. Witness Jessica Davis said that SCRAPS intimidated her by saying if she didn’t sign a statement, (which she eventually emailed one in), they would hold her responsible as alleged cat killer’s accomplice. This proves that SCRAPS is fully aware of how dangerous this alleged cat killer is, and warned absolutely no one in this community.

Feb 22, LA Talk radio show, State of the Oceans,…/defa…/files/audio/Oceans-022217.mp3, invited the witnesses to discuss their experience with the alleged cat killer, whom they identified. The witnesses cooperated to help prosecute this alleged serial cat killer, and warned that he is getting worse, likely to escalate to violent crimes on humans.…/ . Two witnesses provided statements, and one agreed to an audio statement about the serial cat killer and how dangerous he is.

Feb 27, SCRAPS confirmed “Tyler Engstrom” as person of interest and possible suspect .…/scraps-confirms-person-of-interest-in-…

In Coeur D’Alene, approximately 20 miles from the Spokane cat killings, they investigate crimes correctly. When ONE cat was abused, the police were called in for investigation, the community was warned to keep their pets safe, details were supplied to the media for thorough coverage, and locals put up a reward.…/10000-reward-being-offered-in-coeur-da… . Spokane officials, however, absolutely don’t care about serious animal abuse or a dangerous, sick person, loose in the Spokane community.

Furthermore, the witnesses admitted that the cat abuse case in Coeur D’Alene is the same torture style (strangling) as the Spokane serial cat killer. The alleged cat killer goes to Coeur D’Alene with the witnesses often to gamble, accompanied with a new, revolving kitten victim to torture, and later dumps it. These crimes are connected, but only Coeur D’Alene seems to care, while Spokane gave the message– it’s ok to torture and kill animals.

March .1st
LA Talk Radio, State of the Oceans invites special guest Jane Velez Mitchell on with with witnesses Kurtis Jones Tolliver, Rusty Melcher, Danielle Shurbutt to discuss the nation’s outrage that SCRAPS and DA failed to prosecute Spokane serial cat killer (or have police involved, post warnings or updates, never interviewed witnesses or investigated like they claimed).…/defa…/files/audio/Oceans-030117.mp3

Guardians of Rescue, after spending time and resources on this case, is offering a $5000 REWARD; Katie Cleary, of World Animal News and Peace for Animals, is offering a $10,000 REWARD; and we, the Barbi Twins, are also offering a $5000 REWARD, totaling $20,000 for the information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for the serial cat killings in Spokane.

What are YOU doing for the Spokane community and your citizens?

We are anxiously awaiting a response from Mayor Condon,

Veterinary Visits In Maine Just Got Complicated…

A Vegetarian Gammy Takes a Hike ~ Then a Permanent Detour

Like nearly every state, Maine is dealing with an opiate and heroin epidemic. In 2015, Maine experienced 272 overdose related fatalities. In January 2017 one of Maine’s media outlets, WMTW, did an outstanding feature entitled Goodnight moon, goodnight mum,’ ‘Chronicle’ investigates Maine’s heroin epidemic. Anchor David Charns did a phenomenal job detailing the pain and heartache of addiction through a series of interviews and videos including one with Oxford County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Matthew Baker Sergeant  who, moments after arriving home from work in February 2015, discovered his 23-year-old daughter Ronni near death in the upstairs bathroom. Despite CPR from her father and several doses of Narcan by paramedics, she died, leaving behind an 11 month old daughter Claire. Ronni’s daughter, now 2, lives with her grandparents and is the source behind the name of the WMTW article:

A hundred years ago, an elephant named Mary was strung up by a crane and publicly hanged to death

A hundred years ago, an elephant named Mary was strung up by a crane and publicly hanged to death in a Tennessee town after she struck back at a circus employee who hit her with a sharp tool called a bullhook.

It took two attempts to kill Mary. The first chain placed around her neck snapped, sending her crashing to the ground and breaking her hip. The second attempt was successful. Her broken body was buried nearby. No melephonument exists to commemorate Mary, just this shocking image, which serves as a haunting reminder of the circus industry’s long history of killing and abuse. Mary was killed in 1916. Today, 100 years later, elephants still suffer in traveling circus shows.
Beating animals and driving them mad for tawdry human entertainment have no place in civilized society. While kind people hope such shameful acts of exploitation—like hanging Mary from a crane by her neck—have been relegated to the distant past, the uglier side of humanity still seeks to profit from animal abuse. One of those profiteers is UniverSoul Circus.

Breaking: Donald Trump Preparing to overturn the ‘Endangered Species Act’ for no reason


Jerkoff President Trump is preparing to destroy this nation for the sake of money and Republican ideology. He wants to eliminate 75% of regulations so that big companies can trample on Americans in the name of bigger profits.

But now he wants to destroy the environment as well, according to the Associated Press. In an unprecedented move, Trump and Republicans are taking aim at the Endangered Species Act.

The selfish desire to possess animals

It would have been in the animals’ best interests if the institution of “pet keeping”—i.e., breeding animals to be kept and regarded as “pets”—never existed. The international pastime of domesticating animals has created an overpopulation crisis; as a result, millions of unwanted animals are destroyed every year as “surplus.”

This selfish desire to possess animals and receive love from them causes immeasurable suffering, which results from manipulating their breeding, selling or giving them away casually, and depriving them of the opportunity to engage in their natural behavior. They are restricted to human homes, where they must obey commands and can only eat, drink, and even urinate when humans allow them to.

Because domesticated animals retain many of their basic instincts and drives but are not able to survive on their own in the wild, dogs, cats, or birds, whose strongest desire is to be free, must be confined to houses, yards, or cages for their own safety.

This is a best-case scenario. Millions of dogs spend their lives outdoors on heavy chains in all weather extremes or are kept locked up in tiny chain-link pens from which they can only watch the world go by. Millions more are confined to filthy wire cages in puppy mills, forced to churn out litter after litter until they wear out, at which time they are killed or dumped at the local animal shelter. Even in “good” homes, cats must relieve themselves in dirty litterboxes and often have the tips of their toes amputated through declawing. Dogs often have to drink water that has been sitting around for days, are hurried along on their walks, if they even get walked, and are yelled at to get off the furniture or be quiet.

Most compassionate people never imagine that anyone could throw a litter of kittens out the window of a moving car, and they would certainly be shocked by inches-thick files on cases of dogs and cats who have been shot with arrows, blown up with firecrackers, doused in gasoline and set on fire, cooked in microwave ovens, used as bait in dogfights, tortured in satanic rituals, beaten with baseball bats by bored kids, dragged behind cars to “teach them a lesson” for running away, or bound in duct tape to silence their barking. Abuses such as these occur every day.

What we want is for the population of dogs and cats to be reduced through spaying and neutering and for people to adopt animals (preferably two so that they can keep each other company when their human companions aren’t home) from pounds or animal shelters—never from pet shops or breeders—thereby reducing suffering in the world.

Plastic Kills

This turtle was lucky, there are so many that aren’t and they suffer in silence and die slow painful deaths because of our thoughtlessness

The role plastic products play in the daily lives of people all over the world is interminable. We could throw statistics at you all day long (e.g. Upwards of 300 MILLION tons of plastic are consumed each year), but the impact of these numbers border on inconceivable.

For those living on the coasts, a mere walk on the beach can give anyone insight into how staggering our addiction to plastic has become as bottles, cans, bags, lids and straws (just to name a few) are ever-present. In other areas that insight is more poignant as the remains of animal carcasses can frequently be observed; the plastic debris that many of them ingested or became entangled in still visible long after their death. Sadly, an overwhelming amount of plastic pollution isn’t even visible to the human eye, with much of the pollution occurring out at sea or on a microscopic level.


The short-lived use of millions of tons of plastic is, quite simply, unsustainable and dangerous. We have only begun to see the far-reaching consequences of plastic pollution and how it affects all living things. According to a study from Plymouth University, plastic pollution affects at least 700 marine species, while some estimates suggest that at least 100 million marine mammals are killed each year from plastic pollution.

Here are some of the marine species most deeply impacted by plastic pollution.

1. Sea Turtles


Like many other marine animals, sea turtles mistake plastic waste for a viable food source, sometimes causing blockages in their digestive system. Though the declining sea turtle populations in the oceans are due to a variety of factors (most all of which involve human exploitation), plastic pollution plays a significant role.

Separate studies from 2013 suggest as many as 50 percent of sea turtles are ingesting plastic at an unprecedented rate, and dying because of it. Another study of the Loggerhead species found that 15 percent of young turtles examined had ingested such enormous quantities of plastic that their digestive system was obstructed.

2. Seals and Sea Lions

Marine life can become entangled in a variety of ocean debris including fishing nets, lines, and lures. Still, there are a number of seals and sea lions that become entangled in plastic bags or plastic packing bands leading to injury and death.

In fact, plastic packing bands and rubber bands continue to deeply impact the Steller Sea Lion population. An eight-year study in Southeast Alaska and British Columbia documented 388 sea lions entangled in plastic debris. These plastic packing bands and rubber bands can become so embedded in the animal that it can lead to severe infection and death.

3. Seabirds

Chris Jordan


Plastic pollution leads to the deaths of millions of marine bird species each year. Arguably more so than other birds, the Laysan albatross has been deeply impacted by plastic debris through their hunting techniques. When the albatross dives into the ocean to catch fish, squid or other food they use their beak to skim the surface, picking up plastic along the way.

Shockingly, an estimated 98 percent of albatross studied are found having ingested some kind of plastic debris. Once the plastic has been ingested, it causes an obstruction in the digestive tract and can puncture internal organs.

4. Fish

Fish, along with pretty much any marine mammal that brings in water through its gills, are increasingly at risk to microscopic plastic debris. A study performed at the University of Exeter UK suggested that microscopic marine debris could take up to six times as long for the animal to rid themselves of in comparison to ingesting the debris orally.

Of course plastic pollution deeply impacts species of fish, but unlike other animals on our list, this is the one animal that’s also commonly eaten by humans. A number of studies suggest that the fish humans continue to consume have at one time or another ingested plastic microfibers, including brown trout, cisco, and perch.

5. Whales and Dolphins


Like other marine mammals, whales often mistakes marine debris for a potential food source. In some species, similar to that of the albatross, the whales mouth is so large it unknowingly picks up plastic debris (a technique observed in baleen whales). Necropsies performed after numerous whale strandings saw an increase in the amount of plastic debris found.

A study also found that hundreds of species of cetaceans have been negatively impacted by plastic pollution in the past two decades. The obstructions often puncturing and tearing the stomach lining, leading to starvation and death. According to Marine Pollution Bulletin, cetaceans are ingesting plastic debris at a rate as high as 31 percent, and in turn, 22 percent of those cetaceans were at an increased risk of death.

What Can You Do?

It’s clear that plastic pollution impacts virtually every living organism in, or thriving off of, the oceans of our world. This is simply not acceptable. The balance of our ecosystem is essential to our quality of life and will ultimately depend on when the world decides to stop turning a blind eye to the issue and make the necessary lifestyle changes.

We all must remain diligent as we work to minimize our own individual consumption of plastic products. So, whether you’re just beginning the journey to minimizing plastic in your life or not, there are a few key steps that never hurt to repeat.

Clean Up After Yourself

Sounds pretty self-explanatory, right? If you’re on the beach or at the park, be mindful of a “leave with what you came with” policy. It also doesn’t hurt to pick up after your neighbors if you notice they may have left a few things behind. Beach cleanups are a great way to help the environment and meet like-minded individuals who want to reduce their plastic footprint.


It’s simple to apply this to your everyday life by recycling in your own home. Most public places now offer waste versus recycling options, too. If you happen to be out, and you don’t see an area for recyclables, simply ask. Worst case scenario is you’re forced to take a plastic bottle or bag home with you and recycle it on your own.

When You Can: Just Say No

We understand that going completely plastic free is challenging for most families, but we all know plastic consumption isn’t always well, necessary. Saying no to straws, buying in bulk and bringing your own reusable bags grocery shopping are just a few of the many ways you can cut down on the amount of plastic you’re consuming.
