The Reader‘s gotten letters asking for more on Ami Moore, the West Loop dog trainer I wrote about in April who’s facing animal cruelty charges–witnesses say she was strapping electronic collars around dogs’ private parts, among other things.

Moore says she’s innocent and PETA’s behind the whole thing, because they hate America and because she’s black.

She closed up her shop on Madison the week our story ran, but her Web site says she’ll still come to your house to train your dog. Meanwhile her case drags on; a bench trial is scheduled for October 2.
