Re: Hundreds of Birds discovered in Passaic store

I've said it a million times, it's the hoarders that do the most damage.

Therapy birds? In a second hand clothing store, (probably also hoarded clothing.) This is MENTAL ILLNESS....

And now there's 200+ birds in need of vet care.

Heartbreaking and inexcusable! Seems like someone would have reported him before it got to this point.

Re: Hundreds of Birds discovered in Passaic store

I saw this on News 12 yesterday too. The only positive is that I did see a number of people asking about potential adoption after they are vet checked. Hopefully these birds are healthy enough to recover and have a good new life.
