  • No more hoardin' for Virginia Gambriel
Early last year, authorities raided the southwest Missouri home of Virginia Gambriel and found not only 40 dogs, 13 cats, 10 rabbits, 2 doves, 2 turtles and a chinchilla. They also found three dead chinchillas in her fridge and a dead cat in a cage.

Now THAT'S a hoarder.

Earlier this month, Gambriel was finally convicted of 75 counts of misdemeanor animal abuse. Her sentencing is set for February 7.

How is it that the crew of Confessions: Animal Hoarding was not all over this?
