Well i think its against the law if they are exposed to the
elements, i do not think a small bird cage can provide shelet, so
more than likely they are doing something against the law, i'd
report them, i'd keep reporting them untill something is done. And
if nothing happens, i am the type to help a animal one way or
another (not good for the humans) if they kept rebuying i'd
probably keep stealing, lol. But thats just my heart talking, i am
not 100% sure i would ever do it, but still, If i really felt bad
and i had the hole guilt thing happening i'd do something.
