60 exotic birds taken from home

PHILADELPHIA - December 30, 2008 - Stroud Area Regional Police call the home's condition deplorable and say they have moved the mother and the birds elsewhere.

The Monroe County Coroner's Office reports Wednesday that 45-year-old Wendy Kresge died of natural causes. Police say her disabled mother called authorities Christmas Eve after getting no response to calls to her daughter in another room.

Police Lt. Brian Kimmins says the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has custody of the birds. He says 73-year-old Judith Kresge is now in an assisted-living facility.
