RANCHO BERNARDO, CA (KFMB/CNN) – Some people love having birds as pets… But in certain conditions… But experts said there is such a thing as too much.
More than 80 birds were rescued from a man’s one-bedroom apartment Wednesday morning.
“These are all cockatiels, yeah. They’re just flying around in there, willy nilly!” said Sgt. Laurel Monreal of the San Diego Humane Society. “It is a bird-hoarding situation. It’s not a clean situation.”
Because of these unsanitary and possibly dangerous conditions, humane society officers had to don protective gear to seize the cockatiels.
They were found flying freely around, confined primarily to two rooms of the apartment.
