last night i happened to catch the new series on Animal Planet: "Animal Hoarders"
the one i saw was about a man who owns 158 chickens. he's turned his home over to the chickens, gave up his 3 bedrooms for them to roam free in, and sleeps on a cot in his living room. his floor is literally covered in chicken feces, feed for the chickens, bugs, an even eggs that they lay (which im sure are covered in salmonella) and the chickens breed too and he has little chicks running around.
out of curiosity, do you know anyone that is an "animal hoarder"? what are your thoughts on this episode?
animal hoarding is an actual mental disease just like people who hoard food, or live with everything they've acquired over the years all over their homes, never clean, etc. there is no known "cure" for hoarding.

I think it's disgusting, seriously. If you can't clean up the freaking poop the animals need different homes. I have been accused of being an animal hoarder because I have 20 cats at once. All of them were fixed and had their shots and their litter boxes were always cleaned. If you take care of the animals, I see no problem. If you aren't able to walk around your house because there is poop all over, quit being nasty.
