Rhode Island Parrot Rescue worker with birds recovered from 82 Newtown Turnpike in Weston.animal-abuse-bird-rescue Upon her arrival at 82 Newtown Turnpike, last week, Corrie Butler said she was overwhelmed by the “cloying, suffocating stench of death and decay.”
Butler and a team of volunteers from Rhode Island Parrot Rescue arrived at the Weston home on Friday, Sept. 16, and removed more than 100 exotic birds to take back to their headquarters in Warwick, R.I.
The day before, Weston officials had found hundreds of birds, snakes, and reptiles, both dead and alive, inside a home and aviary outbuilding on the property. Rhode Island Parrot Rescue was called in to help.

Butler, the Rescue’s facility manager, said the smell was so bad in the two-story aviary that the team had to wear full isolation gear and respirator masks. “The floor was littered with debris, old cardboard boxes, broken down pieces of equipment, open bags of rotted bird food, and clutter,” she said.
The walls and ceiling, she said, were covered with “thick bands of spider webs” that coated the rescue team from head to toe as they entered and exited the building with arms full of carriers containing birds of all shapes, colors and sizes.

The team sorted through the “dessicated corpses” of many birds, in an effort to identify them. A number had decomposed quite a bit. “Amidst the corpses were the remains of what can be described as more beak than body of one bird,” she said, adding that the bird was possibly a toucan.

She said a number of boxes were covered with feces, seeds, droppings, and mites, and were “crawling with insects that no amount of wiping could begin to remove.”

The floor, she said, was covered with at least three inches of “foul, unidentifiable urine soaked refuse.”download

Canvas bags marked “Uptown birds,” were scattered throughout the building. The name on the bags may possibly have been a reference to the property owner’s former business, Fauna, a pet shop located on the upper west side of Manhattan.

On the second floor of the aviary, Butler came across hanging, mesh cages which she said were filled with malnourished, starving birds coated in droppings and refuse.animal-abuse-group-1-880x1024

Erica Collins, media coordinator for Rhode Island Parrot Rescue, called the situation “heartbreaking” because parrots are “beautiful, intelligent and emotional creatures.”

“People don’t realize how intelligent exotic birds can be,” Collins said. “You should have seen their little faces looking out through the carriers as they were brought inside.”

Daniel George Kopulos has been involved in the Scarlet MaCaw project that was probably some psuedo project as nature does not need our help it just needs us to let it be and leave its animals alone.

She said volunteers receiving the birds in Warwick became extremely emotional as they unpacked the impoverished creatures. They immediately assessed their health and put them in clean cages filled with food and water.

“At the end of the day it really took a toll on us,” she said. “If you saw the conditions the birds were living in you would be sick in the pit of your stomach,” she said.

Altogether, Rhode Island Parrot Rescue took in 130 birds from Weston. Quite a bit more than the facility is used to accommodating. Collins said they usually have up to 40 birds at any given time.

To ensure public health and safety measures are followed, the rescued birds are being quarantined for at least 30 days, Collins said.

To help with the substantial veterinary costs and care of the birds, the group is accepting donations on its website, riparrots.org Click on the tab marked “donate & wishlist.” Donations should be marked “Weston Birds” so they are applied to this case.

The public can keep track of the birds by visiting riparrots.org and the Facebook page — Rhode Island Parrot Rescue, where the group gives frequent updates about the birds.

BINNIE also related that he called his supervisor who contacted the Humane Officer.

On 11/01/14 I interviewed BAKER’S relative Katelynn BRAWDY who related that she had heard about the dog that was found in the garbage can and texted the following message to BAKER on 10/30/14 at 5:08 PM “They found your dog in the garbage can”. BAKER replied “I heard”. BRAWDY then texted “Did you do that? I would have helped you find a home”. Baker then replied “Yeah I am a bad person”.

On 11/04/14 I interviewed defendant Nicole BAKER who related that she began starving her dog Mia approx six weeks prior to her leaving for Texas. Baker then stated that on 10/27/14 she walked her dog Mia out to the curb and placed her in a black garbage bag. BAKER then placed Mia in a garbage can approx thirty minutes prior to her leaving the residence. BAKER also stated that the dog was in the garbage can for about three days prior to being discovered.

Article by Ross Guidotti– The Humane Society of Westmoreland County is currently caring for a dog that was left in a garbage can by its owner, who then allegedly moved out of state. According to officials, the dog was found in a garbage can in the 100-block of Yellow Pine Lane in New Stanton Thursday morning.A sanitation worker, Nathan Binnis of Somerset County, took the lid off of the can and saw the 5-year-old dog. He took the dog out of the can, fed it his lunch and called the Humane Society. “The garbage company called us,” said Jan Dillon, of the Humane Society. “They were dumping garbage and they noticed one of the bags moved.” The dog was extremely malnourished – weighing just 17 pounds. It is supposed to weigh about 50 pounds.

The dog had a microchip, so the owner has been identified. However, she allegedly moved to Texas. The chip identifies the primary owner as Nicole Baker. She lived in the trailer were the dog was discovered in the garbage can. The secondary owner is identified as Brittney Booker. She lives next door. Baker allegedly moved out Monday. KDKA’s Ross Guidotti knocked on Booker’s residence. There was someone home; however, they didn’t answer the door. The Humane Society is hoping to talk to both Baker and Booker as the investigation continues.

Hempfield woman accused of starving puppy admitted to probationary program
By Bob Stiles Staff Reporter
Wednesday, Jan. 21, 2015, 2:24 p.m.
A Hempfield woman accused of starving a female puppy and dumping her into the trash reached an agreement with prosecutors Wednesday that calls for her to be placed on a probationary program for first-time offenders.

Nicole L. Baker, 50, will serve probation and do 50 hours of community service as part of her terms on the Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition program, according to her attorney, Chris Huffman.

She will have to pay fines, make restitution and stay out of trouble, Huffman said.

Baker had been scheduled to appear before East Huntingdon District Judge Charles Moore on charges of animal cruelty and disorderly conduct filed by state police.

“I think she realizes that and is sorry,” Huffman said of Baker’s alleged cruelty in not feeding the dog. “The good thing is, the dog’s OK.”

Baker did not say why she allegedly left the dog without food or dumped her in a trash bag, Huffman said.

After reaching her agreement, Baker ran to a waiting vehicle, away from media.

The Westmoreland Humane Society took in the dog and nursed her back to health.

“The humane society did a wonderful job bringing her back to health,” Huffman said. “(Baker) regrets what happened … and hopefully nothing like this happens again in her life and she can move on from here.”

Acceptance into ARD does not require an admission of guilt. When they successfully complete the program, participants can petition the court to expunge their criminal records.

The dog, later named Fawna for her light tan coat, was discovered by garbage truck driver Nathan Binnie on his route in New Stanton on Oct. 30. The puppy’s head was sticking out of a garbage bag at a Yellow Pine Lane residence.

The collie mix, about nine months old at the time, was emaciated, with her ribs, spine and hip bones all visible. She weighed 17 pounds. Authorities estimated the animal had not been fed for about six weeks.

Megan Fritz, a veterinarian technician with the Humane Society, first fostered Fawna back to health, then adopted her. Fawna is about a year old.

“She’s been absolutely wonderful,” Fritz said. “She’s gained 32 pounds. She plays, eats and sleeps, just like a normal dog.”

Fritz said she hopes Baker learns from her time on the probationary program.

“If it’s something that’s going to improve her as a person, then I truly hopes it works,” Fritz said.

But she called Baker’s alleged actions “heartless.”

Terri Wolfinger of Youngwood, an animal rescuer, went to the hearing and said afterward she would like to see tougher laws enacted for animal abuse.

“I think they have to get the laws changed in Pennsylvania,” she said.
