Recently read on the Humane Society report:

Pennsylvania Ave. SE, 3900 block, Feb. 25. Fifteen Airedales and Welsh terriers and 87 parakeets and canaries were impounded after humane society officers executed a search warrant at a residence. The warrant was issued following a report alleging that a man was shooting a BB gun at dogs when they barked.

Several days before the search, the man had allegedly refused to allow society officers to see the animals. During the search, officers found that the dogs were dirty and being kept in crates throughout the house, according to the society. The birds, some of which were injured, were reportedly living in overcrowded, filthy cages. The owners were breeding the animals but lacked permits to have so many on the premises, according to the society.

Police arrested the man after marijuana plants, four loaded handguns and a BB gun were allegedly found in the home.
