Bird breeder cited for cruelty to animals

Published 11/03/09

The city’s Animal Care Division seized 111 birds last month from an Aurora home last month, claiming that the animals were treated cruelly and forced to live in inhumane conditions. According to court documents, the officer found dirty cages with no water, bedding soiled with feces and several dead mice. The woman is facing several charges related to infractions to the city code, including cruelty to animals, the endangerment of the health and life of an animal, failure to remove feces and humane care charges related to the lack of potable water. The possible fines for the misdemeanor charges range from $15 to $1,000, plus one year in jail.
