TIBCS (The International Bengal Cat Society) / Libel/Defamation

1 United States Review updated:

TIBCS is supposed to be a non-profit cat society furthering information on the Bengal Cat. Instead, they have harbored their Ethics Chair, Annette Lerche Trolle, Trollspotting Bengals, in Denmark, who was allegedly convicted of animal abuse. In the rental property that Annette Lerche Trolle trashed, it was reported in the media that 94 cats were seized and 42 of those cats were Bengals that were so severely ill they had to be euthanized. TIBCS' Executive Board members posted "sympathy" for Annette Lerche Trolle to public group lists, but no sympathy for the abused cats. Allegedly this is the 3rd property that Annette Lerche Trolle has trashed.

It was only after a brave Bengal breeder posted to her Web site the truth about Annette Lerche Trolle that she was finally permanently banned from TIBCS. And what did TIBCS do after banning Annette Lerche Trolle? They banned this good and ethical breeder for posting the information about Annette Lerche Trolle and the horrible conditions of her cattery. The attached pictures show the awful dirty situation at Trollspotting Bengals: feces, urine, flies, sick cats.

Besides TIBCS banning the breeder who posted the news and pictures of Annette Lerche Trolle's filthy disease-ridden cattery, there are other good breeders on TIBCS' Disciplinary page who do not deserve suspension or being banned. TIBCS is run by Bengal breeders who seem to have an axe to grind againt successful breeders and rather than promoting the Bengal breed as a non-profit club should, they encourage "ethics complaints" against these good and ethical breeders so they can try and defame them on their "disciplinary" page.

If you are a Bengal breeder or a Bengal pet owner, do not become a TIBCS member. This club has broken many hearts and hurt many good and caring breeders. For their cruel deeds, karma will not be denied and it will come back onto them in one form or another.

    130 Cats From Annette Lerche Trolle of CFA Trollspotting Bengals

    Denmark has never experienced a case of cats in this magnitude. The CFA bengal breeder is a member of TIBCS and very well known in the cat fancy community.----- The animal welfare organization Dyrenes Beskyttelse seized 130 cats in all and placed them at them at their shelter in Brande. All of them had diarrhea and other disease like inflammation of the eyes, respiratory illnesses etc. It was suspected some had had their lungs damaged from inhaling ammonia. Sadly most of them did not recover - many because their intestines were so damaged they could not gain weight. After a couple of months only 17 cats had survived and put up for adoption.

    This is what Annette Lerche Trolle of Trollspotting Cattery, CFA pedigreed cat breeder of Denmark looked like before the nightmare for these cats started. Click on the image to view other images of FEMALES of Annette Lerche Trolle's website of this cat horror. There is no excuse whatsoever for these CRIMES to happen to our pedigreed cats by CFA cat breeders.

    You can view over 48 images of horror with filth and feces all over the entire empty room full of cats, those poor cats.

    Kudos to the individual who posted this complaint. I am the breeder, Mara Summers of Dazzledots Bengals, who posted the horrendous photos of Trollspotting Bengals to my Web site. I was not a TIBCS member, and yet I was banned for posting information that was already in the public domain. The reason I posted the photos was because Annette Lerche Trolle, who was arrested for animal abuse, was TIBCS Ethics Chair. She had hounded and harassed good ethical Bengal breeders with lame ethics complaints while she herself kept her cats in squalid conditions. Annette Lerche Trolle even attempted to solicit complaints from breeders' clients if she or someone on the TIBCS Executive Board had a personal vendetta against other breeders, and she used her authority at TIBCS to bully others. TIBCS has not yet made things right. TIBCS has not apologized to the breeders they have hurt. They continue vendettas in the guise of Disciplinary actions when they don't follow their own Code of Ethics. As a non-profit cat club, the Bengal breeders on TIBCS Executive Board have no right to play judge and jury over other breeders. To permanently ban a good and ethical breeder, who was not even a TIBCS member at the time, due to her standing up to TIBCS' Executive Board on behalf of other breeders and the fact that their Ethics Chair was an animal abuser is an outrage.

    On November 20, 2012, the issue was resolved between Mara Summers and TIBCS and came to a satisfactory conclusion.

    I am pleased to confirm that on November 20, 2012, the TIBCS Executive Board voted to rescind the prior decision to ban Mara Summers, and this issue has been resolved.
