Donald Freedheim on psychology of animal hoarders

The News-Messenger: Humane societies have seen an increase in animal hoarding, but the issue is nothing new, said Donald K. Freedheim, emeritus professor of psychology. “Hoarding has become, all of a sudden, a recognized problem,” he said. “Because there is more attention on it right now, there seems to be more cases of it, but they are likely just old cases coming to light.”
