    WTF? animal rights activist took her life last week, along with 31 rescue dogs

    An Ohio animal rights activist took her life last week, along with 31 rescue dogs, the Moreland Hills Police Department said.

    WOIO reported the death of Sandra Lertzman, 62, who was the Executive Director at the Animal Rights Foundation.

    Police say they found her dead in her car -- which was running in the garage -- and 31 dead dogs that had been trapped inside with her.

    Investigators found prescription vials in the vehicle and a suicide note inside the house, CNN reported.

    According to Sgt. Janet Boehler, a friend discovered Lertzman's body. It is unclear how long Lertzman and her pets -- all small dogs -- had been dead before they were found. The woman was last seen alive November 3.

    On their website, the Animal Rights Foundation gave a reason for why she may have taken the dogs' lives with her:

    "She obviously feared that upon her death, these abused dogs would be placed in harm's way," the website says. "Sandy spent countless hours every day taking care of each dog and their specialized problems with her love that she offered."

    Only one of the dogs managed to survive, escaping the car and breathing through a gap in Lertzman's garage. That dog is now with Lertzman's husband, Rick, WKYC reported.

    "She wanted to continue to rescue and save these animals but, unfortunately, nobody can take care of 30 animals, properly, by themselves," said Gina Lutes-Finley, Director of Dogs Unlimited Rescue.

    Lertzman also left behind 20 cats. They were unharmed.

    I thought it was nearly impossible to kill yourself with your car these days, what with catalytic converters and all?

    Could've at least left the dogs out.

    Question the cats? Hell, let's question the surviving dog as they must have had a hand in it

    (No, the pic has nothing to do with this, but I had to share)
    It is what it is

    I could tell that my parents hated me. My bath toys were a toaster and a radio.

    sometimes people get overwhelmed and don't know how to ask for help

    30 dogs for anyone, even little dogs, is a big burden and she knew that that number of dogs would overwhelm any shelter in the area

    ask for help, people. just ask for help

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    This story is ironic because the dogs basically ended up with the same fate that she was dedicated to saving them from.
