A woman could face charges after sheriff's deputies found 445 birds in her home in Santa Barbara, Calif., local media reported Monday.
Santa Barbara County Animal Services is expected to present its evidence against Sanday Coupla to a district attorney later this week, KEYT.com reported.
An anonymous tip led sheriff's deputies to Coupla's home, where they found 445 birds -- including chickens, parrots, turkeys and quail. Farm animals, cats and dogs were also on the premises.
The county animal shelter, which is set up to handle 2-3 birds, was asking for donations of bird food, KSBY.com reported.
