50,000 Hens found starving, dead in Turlock
TURLOCK, Calif. (KGO) -- Thousands of hens were found dead or starving in Central California.
There were 50,000 hens that were discovered on a chicken ranch in Turlock after a neighbor complained about the business.
A third of them died of starvation and the rest are in such poor condition they will have to be euthanized. The ranch is rented by A&L Poultry.
Stanislaus Animal Service officials say the owner will likely face animal neglect charges.
