Humane Agents Remove Farm Animals from House

[lin_video src= service=syndicaster width=480 height=510 div_id=videoplayer-1365206075 type=script]Animal Charity humane agents removed farm animals from a Campbell home Friday.

When agents responded to a call at a home on Sanderson Avenue, they found 15 chickens, four geese, and one dog.

The dog was in fairly good condition, but the birds were living in deplorable conditions in the basement.

“When we went inside the home, you could smell immediately the feces odor,” said Animal Charity humane agent Fabian Pika. “(We) go inside, went to the basement where the animals were being held. They were in a small pen, maybe two feet by one and half foot. Ten of the animals were there, the others out back.”

The 72-year-old owner of the home is in the hospital with injuries from an unrelated accident.

He agreed to relinquish the animals to Animal Charities due to his condition. They will be checked out by a vet and put in foster care.

No charges are expected to be filed since the man is cooperating.
