Snow collapses two aviaries, bird killed at waterfowl rescue

INDIAN TRAIL, NC (WBTV) -

Volunteers at a waterfowl rescue say at least one bird was killed when two aviaries collapsed during Wednesday night's weather.

According to volunteers at the Carolina Waterfowl Rescue in Indian Trail, the aviaries collapsed overnight and one bird was killed.

Volunteers believe the weight of snow and ice caused the collapse.

WBTV has learned that many other pens were damaged and volunteers say they need help to foster chickens while repairs are being made.

The nonprofit director, Jennifer Gordon, slept at the rescue last night to watch over the birds.
