Police discover snakes, alligators and spiders in house
Police called to a house in Milwaukee were surprised to discover that it was filled with hundreds of reptiles including alligators and anacondas, as well as rodents, and spiders.
Police were originally called to the house to investigate a report of an alleged sexual assault, but upon arriving discovered the menagerie, both in the house and in a nearby building that doubled as a residence and a storage facility.
Among the animals discovered were at least five anacondas between 20 and 30 feet long, alligators, spiders and one chicken (who was presumably feeling rather nervous).
Some of the animals were in containers, while others were roaming freely.
Police needed the help of an animal control unit and staff from a nearby zoo to round up all the animals. A 50-year-old woman was arrested, and could face charges.
