More than 180 animals have been rescued so far, including cows, goats, pigs, emus, pheasants, chickens, quails, ducks, partridges, chinchillas, hamsters, guinea pigs, geese, turkeys, a cockatiel and a snake, according to the NJ SPCA.
Some animals are still on the farm, as the survivors have to be removed in groups and quarantined so they don't infect the other animals at their new homes. Many of the animals have E. coli and upper respiratory infections, and most are are emaciated. The pigs have severe mange, Lester said, and are "just ripping their skins off they're so itchy."
They're also very scared of humans and, as Stura put it, "shell-shocked."
