Dozens of birds were rescued from a possible hoarding situation in a Rancho Bernardo apartment on Wednesday morning, a San Diego Humane Society official said.
A handful of Humane Society officers spent hours removing the birds from a home on Avenida De Los Lobos near Paseo Montanoso, placing them in boxes and then carting them out to a truck to be medically evaluated, according to the Humane Society.
As of 2 p.m., more than 80 birds had been seized.
It’s unclear what types of birds were located, but many were cockatiels, a member of the cockatoo family, officials said. The animals will eventually be transported to the shelter on Gaines Street.
