Woman Accused Of Stealing Cats Back From Shelter Arrested Again

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A Wisconsin woman who was charged with stealing back 15 cats from the Humane Society was arrested for violating the conditions of her bond.

Lee Ann Shore, 46, was arrested last month after she allegedly broke into the Coulee Region Humane Society in Onalaska, Wis. to get cats that were seized from her earlier in May.

Shore's apartment had been condemned, according to Coulee Region's executive director Heather Hankins.

"They took out 17 cats, and the reason being that the living conditions were not suitable for people or animals," she said.

Police arrested Shore last Friday after she reportedly contacted the Humane Society to check on the condition of her cats. That was a violation of her bond, which required her to have no contact with the agency.

Shore is now charged with felony bail jumping and is being held without bond, according to CNN.

Some of the cats were given out for adoption.
