hopefully her next starring role will be PRISONER.
Laura Fitterman in 2007 in Wayne County, TN court.
LAURA FITTERMAN'S Trail of Tears stretches from Florida to Tennessee to Alabama.
in october 2004, the AKC's disciplinary committee suspended all of FITTERMAN'S AKC privileges for a period of 10 years and fined her $2000 after she pled guilty to animal cruelty charges while living in Callahan, FL. i don't have all of the details but the charges involved FITTERMAN'S german shepherds. FITTERMAN then moved to Waynesboro, TN and innovember 2007 was soon facing animal cruelty charges AGAIN. authorities found 60 animals in her possession, many of which were in bad shape. FITTERMAN blamed the emaciated and dead animals on her unemployment. FITTERMAN is now living in Florence, AL and again, the animals in her possession are suffering, except this time, deputy JOE SHANES is refusing to do anything about it. he has apparently inspected the property and found no violations. i question his ability to perform his job objectively because there are "rumors" that FITTERMAN gave a german shepherd to JOE SHANES, possibly to replace his recently deceased dog. last august during the heat wave, SHANES' malinois died from heat exposure. there are surprisingly few details of how and where SHANES found his dog's lifeless body.... but back to the known abuser, there are no news links to this story - yet.
here are photos of some of the animals under FITTERMAN'S care:
i have looked under every google rock and in every pipl closet and this is what i have found:
on her myspace page, FITTERMAN claims to be a vet tech. my sources tell me that she is not a vet tech but she is studying to become one. she claims to live on a small farm and raises morgan horses. she also claims her horses were stolen in may 2008 and has devoted a website to their return. FITTERMAN claims the horses were stolen by an acquaintance but in reality, they were probably rescued from her deranged clutches. LAURA! how can you go from unemployed and unable to provide care for your animals in nov 2007 to a breeder of morgans in may 2008 AND offer a reward?
in october 2009 FITTERMAN pimped a litter of border collie puppies in an agriculture newsletter.
here LAURA FITTERMAN is advertising her pet sitting services while claiming to be a vet tech AND an EXPERIENCED equine abuse investigator!!!!! i did a reverse number lookup and her phone number traces back to

no date is available but here is FITTERMAN applying to become a horse rescuer. I wonder if she answered the question about animal abuse convictions honestly or if she committed perjury. the safe bet is perjury.
what to do?
the lauderdale county district attorney Chris Connolly.
the lauderdale county sheriff's office.
the lauderdale county administrator Jenoice Bevis.
the lauderdale county commissioners.
the alabama governor Bob Riley.
