I am going to have a freaking cow! I wrote a long, eloquent summary and then lost it all! Well, not doing that again so a bulleted list will have to suffice. You guys would probably prefer that anyway. 1) I am a college student in NC and moved into a new place in August so my pets and foster animals could have more room 2) I was a dummy and didn't thoroughly investigate anything before I moved in and I didn't sign a lease 3) I've had nothing but issues since moving in but the animal neglect case bothers me the most, I will just cover stuff about the birds though (there are neglected dogs too) 4) Couldn't afford to move out or be kicked out mid-semester because of difficulty of finding animal friendly housing 5) The person whose lived here the longest and facilitated me moving in can be known as CK for chicken killer; he is very passive aggressive and doesn't like me doing anything with his animals 6) Another room-mate and I dumped out mosquito larvae infested buckets of stagnant water and CK was beyond angry because he said he used it to water his birds 7) CK had baby chick/ducks all of which have died, all his guinea fowl have died, most of his chickens/ducks have died 8) He rarely feeds, even more rarely waters them. If there is water, it is black. They live in filth and tiny or overcrowded cages with poor shelter. 9) No eggs have been produced since I moved here, probably due to poor nutrition. 10) He wouldn't allow me to help a very sick duck even though I was willing to go above and beyond for it. Duck was left for several hours suffering before it "disappeared" 11) I found a freezer full of all the dead baby birds and many of the birds that had "disappeared" 12) Dead ducks have also been thrown over the back yard's fence 13) I have found dead ducks in the cages that have been left for a time 14) I have tried to help the birds in other instances (secretly watering them in the middle of the night) but it ticks CK off and I remained terrified throughout the semester of getting kicked out 15) I have reached out for help but have been told to move out first as they didn't want me and my animals getting kicked out. 16) Lastly, over Thanksgiving his dog broke into a cage and killed two chickens. CK just said he would get more. I have endured this for four months. Who knows how long the birds have endured this. I imagine he kills his whole flock off every year and then just replaces them in Spring. CK actually works for the poultry department of my university, which is frightening. The semester is almost over and I have served my 30 day notice. I don't know how I will find a new place mid school year but I can't stand this any longer. Now I will finally be able to attempt something. What I want to happen is for them to confiscate the birds and ban him from owning anymore. Unfortunately he will probably get a slap on the wrist. I have a meeting with the landlord I am very nervous about on Tuesday. I plan to bring this up but the landlord and CK are buddies so I am afraid he will side with CK (which is why I haven't contacted him before). Nonetheless, I only have 30 days left and he can't evict me sooner than that. I have lots of videos and pictures as proof thankfully! If anyone wants to see them I can provide the links to them on YouTube; they attest far more to CK's inhumane husbandry than my brief words do. I will gladly elaborate on anything. I was just so frustrated at having lost all my work that for now, this will have to do. If you have any advice I would greatly appreciate it! Especially if you are familiar with my state's animal welfare laws.
