Sanctuary founder evicted
From ANIMAL PEOPLE, Jan/Feb 1998:
DALLAS––A federal court on December 8
ruled that Texas Exotic Feline Foundation cofounder
Gene Reitnauer must leave her home at the TEFF
sanctuary within 30 days, despite a bankruptcy claim
she filed after a Travis County court ordered her to
pay $1.8 million in restitution and damages for
allegedly converting TEFF assets to her personal use.
The Travis County judgement held that the use of
donors’ funds on the house made it TEFF property
rather than her own.
