15-foot snake, pigs, dozens of exotic animals rescued from home

Local News

MACUNGIE, PA (WCMH) – As many as 100 animals were removed from a Pennsylvania home Monday night.

Police were called to the home in Macungue Monday on a complaint about barking dogs. When they arrived, they found much, much more.

Authorities had to enter the home with respirators and masks borrowed from firefighters, WFMZ reported.

“We have dogs, we have rabbits, birds, exotic birds, snakes of all sorts and sizes, fish,” said Lehigh County Humane Society Shelter Manager Teisha Jones. “We’re talking snakes that look like they’re from a horror movie. The biggest one that I’ve seen come out is probably about 12 to 15 feet.”

“The urine, the feces, you have pigs living in a home that aren’t being taken outside,” Jones continued.

Jones said this was unlike anything she has ever had to deal with.
