Degu Concern

I saw this ad on and was a bit concerned at the number of degus up for adoption.

"have male and females to give away to good home. i have 135 ready to go. live in harriman tenn (USA). e mail me at [email protected] or [email protected]"

It sounds like a "puppy mill" operation to me and I'm very concerned for the welfare of the animals. Is there anyone in the area that knows the breeder? I hope "135" is just a typo.

"giving away" & "135 ready to go" definetly sounds irrispoicible, but we don't know the entire situation.
My friend took on over a hundred gerbils from a irrisponcible person, and had to find them all homes. So I'd hate to jump to conclusions, but true it looks fishy.
