NOTICE OF PETITION FOR HEARING, PETITION
AND ORDER FOR THE HUMANE DESTRUCTION OR
DISPOSITION OF BIRDS PURSUANT TO PENAL CODE SECTION 599aa
Hearing Date: 12/23/2008
Time: 9:00 AM
SUPERIOR COURT OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA
FOR THE COUNTY OF SAN DIEGO
IN RE: 58 Roosters seized Pursuant to Penal Code 597d on November 23, 2008 at 38751 De Luz Road in the Unincorporated Portion of Fallbrook in the County of San Diego, California
Comes now the Petitioner, County of San Diego Department of Animal Services, and hereby submits the following: Notice of Petition for Hearing, Petition and Order for the Humane Destruction or Disposition of Birds.
Petitioner hereby requests the court order the County of San Diego Department of Animal Services to humanely destroy or otherwise dispose of 58 roosters which remain unclaimed and were seized in accordance with the provisions of California Penal Code Sections 597d and 599aa at 38751 De Luz Road, in the unincorporated portion of Fallbrook in the County of San Diego, California.
I, Kalani Hudson, declare the following under penalty of perjury:
1. I am an Animal Control Officer employed by the County of San Diego Department of Animal Services for approximately 7 years and currently assigned to the North County Animal Shelter in the County of San Diego, State of California.
2. On November 23, 2008, County of San Diego Sheriff's Department Deputies and County of San Diego Animal Control Officers made a warrant-less entry at 38751 De Luz Road, in the unincorporated portion of Fallbrook in the County of San Diego, California, based on a report of a cockfight in progress at that property. Among other items of evidence showing a cockfight in progress, 64 gamecocks were seized pursuant to Penal Code 599aa(d). These seized gamecocks were found in portable bird carriers scattered in the agriculture grove on the property after multiple parties fled from authorities. No one has claimed ownership of the seized gamecocks.
3. Numerous items associated with illegal cockfighting were found on the property including recently injured and/or dead gamecocks, injectable performance enhancing drugs, first aid supplies, syringes, portable bird carriers, scales, Mexican short knives, a entry form/call sheet indicating multiple planned cockfights, a fighting pit, a concession stand and other items. Leg-bands on the majority of the seized birds matched fight entries on the call sheet.
4. Ownership was established for 300 of the gamecocks on this property on November 23, 2008. All 300 of these birds were relinquished by their owners to the County of San Diego Department of Animal Services for humane euthanasia.
5. Pursuant to Penal Code 599aa(d), all birds for whom ownership could not be determined were seized and taken to an appropriate animal storage facility. Photographs were taken which depict the birds, property and related evidence. These photographs and all other evidence seized are maintained in the Department of Animal Services case file.
6. As of December 16, 2008 the Department has been unable to locate the owners of 64 birds left abandoned on the property, despite ongoing attempts to locate them. Notices have been posted on the property with Animal Services contact information. The Department of Animal Services has been feeding and caring for the remaining birds abandoned on the property on a daily basis. Additionally, most of the birds have been trained for fighting and must be segregated from one another due to their aggressive nature. Thus they are unsuitable for adoption. Six of the gamecocks required humane euthanasia for injuries they sustained, leaving 58 game cocks as the subject of this petition.
7. Your Affiant requests permission to humanely destroy or dispose of the 58 remaining birds pursuant to Penal Code 599aa(e) because:
A. Ownership of the seized animals or birds cannot be determined after reasonable efforts by the County of San Diego Department of Animal Services currently serving as the custodian for the birds.
B. The County of San Diego Department of Animal Services has held the birds for more than 10 days.
C. The County of San Diego Department of Animal Services will publish a copy of this request (petition) for three successive days in a newspaper of general circulation.
At the conclusion of the three days, the County of San Diego Department of Animal Services shall request the magistrate hold a hearing on the petition whereby the court may order the animals or birds to be humanely destroyed or otherwise disposed of until 4 days after the order.
Your Affiant has spoken with Deputy District Attorney Elisabeth Silva who has reviewed this petition for legal sufficiency.
Executed at San Diego, California, this 16th day of December, 2008./s/ D. Hudson
