Sharon met with Kate when charges were brought against her client for trafficking wild animals in violation of the endangered species act. A red panda died in transit. Sharon was surprised that Kate wanted to meet as typically, they were just given a fine and that was the end of it. Sharon insisted that the red panda was alive when it arrived in the US and Customs killed it, not her clients. Kate said she'd be in touch after she looked at the body, which surprised Sharon.
She is a lawyer who defends people who traffic animals.
