(Papillion, NE) -- Hundreds of animals are removed from a Papillion home on Monday and Tuesday.
On Tuesday, the Nebraska Humane Society told WOWT 6 News that about 500 animals had been removed from the home southeast of 84th Street and Giles. The NHS says they removed about 250 birds, chinchillas, snakes, lizards, and other small animals on Monday, and then went back Tuesday and removed about the same number of animals including reptiles, turtles, rabbits, guinea pigs, and small birds. “The conditions were extremely unsanitary, feces and urine throughout the house, many animals did not have food or water. There were also some deceased animals in the home,” an NHS spokeswoman told 6 News.
The animals were taken to the Humane Society to be examined by the veterinary team and receive any required medical treatments. No charges have been filed at this time, but the NHS says that the case is still under investigation.
