The problem is, if a hoarder does not get mental treatment, they will do it 
again. If there is public record of their crimes it makes it easier for good 
rescues to identify them.

I do agree cruelty charges should be great for those torturing animals.

One of the related, inner struggles I have with such cases are, the cruelty 
charges made to those with "good intentions" (which I do believe existed here) 
will likely stick, yet every day sick individuals who purposely torture and 
maim cats and dogs get off very easily even with much evidence.  I read one 
case recently of a man in California who was caught torturing then consuming 
stray cats, supposedly he was even witnessed skinning one alive (and other 
horrible acts), and he got a bit of community service, probation and a fine 
under $500.  This happens all the time.   Perhaps the discrepancy is solely in 
evidence, witnesses and the legal process, but it seems to me that hoarders are 
penalized more stringently than flat out torturers who commit such acts 
willingly, not because they got in over their heads.
