The Wildcat Sanctuary Executive Director is firing back after a lawsuit was filed.

Six former employees of the sanctuary in Sandstone accuse Tammy Thies of firing them because they reported she was misusing funding. Attorneys for Thies filed an Answer and Counterclaim in that lawsuit.

They allege in court documents that the employees were violent and threatening toward Thies. The defense wrote one or more plaintiffs said they wanted to harm Thies and see her dead.

They also claim employees went into Thies' home to read and share emails along with her personal journal.

The defense said the plaintiffs are looking to sabotage the organization.
