The  Riverside County Sheriff’s Department  has intervened in criminal activity at a property near Fillmore Street and Avenue 52 in Thermal.

 

Deputies served a search warrant on Thursday Nov 4th, and found 3 dozen hens and 2 goats.

 

There was no food or water for the animals..

 

Animal control officers gave the owners a written notice of 24 hours to fix the violations..

 

But when Lt. Luis Rosa and Officer Jesus Cisneros returned  on Friday November 5th, to impound the animals,  the goats were gone.

 

35 hens were taken to the Western Riverside County/City Animal Shelter in Jurupa Valley to receive proper food and care. They are not cockfighting roosters, these are the egg-laying hens and will soon be put up for adoption for those who live in areas where having a hen as a pet is allowed.  In most cities, it is illegal to have a chicken  as  a  pet.
