This is horrible... not only that she wants to get ride of them when "they are not usefull" to her, but how they live and that she wants to keep them there and just breed them?! I am sure there is an organization that should be able to help before this backyard breeding begins... maybe contact animal advocates? or like barkingdog said talking to some of the shelters and see how they can help, this is the alberta animal rescue crew society site -
