325 Live Birds, 125 Dead Birds From Hoarder’s home - 10/29/12 01:52 AM

CHICAGO (CBS) – Contract workers hired by the city of Aurora removed more than 300 birds from the home of a hoarder in Aurora after he failed to remove them by a Friday morning deadline.

David Skeberdis was given until 10 a.m. to remove the birds from his home, but missed the deadline. Crews went in and removed 325 birds — including parakeets, cockatiels, conures, canaries, doves and finches — by 5 p.m.

In addition, 125 dead birds were removed from the home, Aurora spokesman Kevin Stahr said in a news release.

Aurora had declared his home a nuisance property, after finding piles of junk and hundreds of birds inside the home last week. Bird feed and bird droppings were spread throughout the townhome.

I've been following this, but you beat me to this post. I'm so glad the remaining live birds are out of there, and somewhat relieved about the situation. An earlier statement by the owner was that he didn't think he needed counselling: "I had psychology classes in college". Hmmmmm.

Thank God someone turned him in and hopefully the rescued birds will find homes. He should have paid more attention in that class! No telling how long those poor birds had been suffering.

I always suspected that most of the other people in my psychology classes were there for the same reason I was: to find out "WHAT is WRONG with me?" Pretty scary to have that feeling when you are assigned to a "mental health professional"; even scarier to BE one! Seriously, though, I wonder if the "hoarder" disease isn't present in most of us, just waiting for a chance. . . sort of like in a typhoid carrier.
