Punish Animal Sanctuary Founder For Death Of Hundreds Of Animals

Published: January 09, 2020 at 11:00 AM Author: Penny Eims

Thawville, Illinois – Corinne DiLorenzo, founder of (the now defunct) Earth Advocates, aka Earth Animal Sanctuary in Thawville, Illinois, was arrested on December 24, 2019. DiLorenzo is believed to be responsible for the deaths of hundreds of animals who were entrusted to her care. The number of animal corpses found in shallow graves on the property is staggering – in fact, more than 600 deceased animals were found in mass graves.

DiLorenzo, aka Cori Dee, is facing a class 4 felony charge of aggravated animal cruelty. An Iroquois County grand jury has turned a one-count indictment against DiLorenzo, alleging that she “intentionally caused the death of multiple companion animals, including dogs, cats, pigs, rabbits, birds, goats, raccoons and turtles.”

People familiar with the situation have described it as something “out of a horror story.” Please join us in asking James Devine, Iroquois County State’s Attorney, to put DiLorenzo behind bars for the maximum allowable time for her charge. Additionally, we ask that she be forbidden from owning or caring for any animal for the remainder of her life.

138 Eric Doren She is dangerous sociopath and narcissist. Her crimes against those innocent individuals must not go unpunished! If she receives anything but a severe sentence, it will be a travesty. Someone with this personality, will only continue to seek a need for excessive admiration, and potentially destroy anyone that gets in their way. Apr 26, 2022
137 Jill Gillono This person is cruel & allowed animals that she vowed to protect to suffer and die. Covid gave her time without punishment, but she needs to pay her dues. The sentence is too lenient since she is a serial killer. Apr 26, 2022
