Hi everyone, I'm hoping someone can advice me on what to do about this situation...I'm losing sleep thinking about it. I was riding my horse here in Santa Barbara on a nature preserve (horses allowed) and came across a very small, dilapitated coop with 8 pecked up hens inside. this preserve bumps up to a few backyards of some houses. The coop is around 4 ft x 4 ft square & around 5ft high, looked very predator proof and had a combination lock on the gate, almost no water & it was filthy, had almost no food & it was some kind of a powder. Eggs were piled high & looked to me that no one had checked on them in a while. I parked my horse & nocked on the door but no answer, then I called a friend that works for animal investigations & left him a message, no reply as of yet. I'm tempted to sneak back with my wire snips & cut out a hole for the hens to escape. Thoughts, advice please?????
