Dude had 110 parakeets in his apartment? WTF?

The Seattle Animal Shelter has more than its share of parakeets up for adoption. Officials found 110 of the birds in a man's one-bedroom apartment.

Animal control officers responding to complaints from neighbors said the noise could be heard from the street. Authorities said the owner surrendered the birds, which were being kept in unsanitary conditions. They said the owner is a man in his 50s who had been collecting the parakeets for about five years.

The birds will be offered to qualified adopters. No charges will be filed, since the man cooperated with authorities. Article here.
