It wouldn’t be the first time they’ve tried using that excuse, and we expected to see it again back in July, following Sarah Gunther‘s forced animal abuse admission, but some would be hard pushed to make it stick given their continued support of Gunther or, in this instance, one of her thin disguises, Esme Weatherwax (currently AWOL) :
Esme Weatherwax-Gunther has been around for a while, certainly well before her court case, although several people joined the Esme friends list after Gunther’s conviction for animal abuse (sickening).
Gunther locked down the page shortly after a comment appeared on this blog, which could be coincidental, but it’s a mystery why she bothered; everyone knew it was her. Maybe her dear friends didn’t like the exposure.
And now some HC‘s are, all of a sudden, sharing and sympathising with Last Chance Conscience Clearance ; something about –
“I wish she could feel the guilt and shame I feel for allowing myself to be taken in by such manipulative and cruel person“.
So, in spite of several warnings over several years ; in spite of never having met the woman nor set foot anywhere near EGAR ; in spite of knowing Gunther used fake profiles to troll (fair enough, so did they) ; in spite of joining her on Lem (anti-Lennox hate) pages and The Lav ; in spite of never being privy to a shred of evidence for anything Gunther claimed ; in spite of all that, they would like it very much if you would believe them when they say, very sincerely, that they are disgusted, deeply hurt and clueless about what was going on.
You couldn’t make it up. But they could. They made it up as they went along based almost entirely on Gunther‘s say-so. The only reason they’re bleating in public now is because mud sticks, rendering as utter crap any ‘guilty by association‘ excuses.
Karin has been very much involved with Gunther for a while, and some have said they know each other personally from way back. Either way, Kulessa and Gunther are joined at the hip.
Vet Bills EGAR is a group they both set up to raise money ‘for vets bills‘ :
The 850 Euros they were after represented funds Gunther should already have had. It was made to look authentic and above board by inviting donations direct to the vets, allowing other ‘funds’ to be used as Gunther saw fit and, as we all now know (and weren’t her supporters warned countless times before?), she did not use all donations for animal welfare.
And now it seems Karin Kulessa is looking for financial help for Lasse, which is her own dog?? Unless those funds are to be paid direct to a vet, it couldn’t possibly be another means to use excess cash for Gunther could it, bearing in mind that fees relating to her court case are due for payment imminently?
Knowing how devious and dishonest Gunther is, what are the odds on any of her claims and stories being true? Stories such as the vans breaking down (year after year!); the alleged attack on her property; the mysterious and invisible fosterers; Buster?
