Woman who broke into cat shelter believed to have eaten animal meds and whiteout

Location: LIVINGSTON, Texas (KTRK). Place: the SPCA shelter in Polk County. Shelter workers shaw the woman passed out on the floor of the shelter when they entered. She had cut her hair, and they believe that she had eaten some animal meds and some whiteout (presumed to mean the correction fluid).  Her clothes were on inside-out. She has caused $2,000 of damage. All the cats where in the building but outside their cages. No cats were harmed.  ASSOCIATED PAGE:  Tackle youth mental health to reduce cat abuse crimes Comment : It is sad. I feel sorry for the woman. She seems to be troubled and on a mind-altering substance of some sort. The indication is that she has animal welfare at heart. I hope that she is treated and not punished. Woman broke into animal shelter. Repairs. Screenshot.
