Rescuers save 2,000 animals from 'appalling' conditions

LOS ANGELES -- Nearly 2,000 birds, fish and reptiles were rescued from a warehouse where they were being kept in "appalling conditions," officials said.
But in the squalid warehouse in Montclair, Calif., east of Los Angeles near San Bernardino, another 1,000 animals were found dead, said the Inland Valley Humane Society and Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
The rescued animals included fish, chickens, parakeets and lovebirds, including some exotic species. They "were being kept in appalling conditions,” the organization said in a joint Facebook post. It also said there was little ventilation in the building and no food or water for the birds. 
The animals were found when officers responded to reports of noise and putrid odors coming from the building in an industrial park.
The warehouse was filled with “feces and trash,” James Edward, operations manager for the Inland Humane Society and Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals said.
"There were what appeared to be hundreds of chickens running loose throughout the facility," Edward said. "There was a strong odor of ammonia from the urine as well as debris, garbage, feces (human and bird) all over the ground."
Edward added that the animals were taken from the site Thursday and Friday and are recovering.
