'Heartbreaking': Vets evaluate nearly 900 animals rescued from eastern Iowa home

From the Des Moines Register:

VINTON, Ia. — More than 24 hours after hundreds of animals were taken from an eastern Iowa home, veterinarians and others were still counting and evaluating them Wednesday to get a handle on the rescue. Also on Wednesday, the homeowner denied the animals were malnourished or otherwise neglected.

Preston Moore, director of the Cedar Valley Humane Society, said the shelter has never brought in more animals at once in its 117-year history.

“It was really heartbreaking,” he said, describing the work as "overwhelming." He called the animals' living conditions inhumane, with some animals living among carcasses and other animals found dead in a freezer.

2. Hoarders

Hoarders usually have cats or dogs. Makes me think they were raising rodents for snake owners.

3. "I am not an animal hoarder. There was probably less than 500 animals in here."

4. "She said she does not sell animals but adopts them"

Sure.

And this is most strange:
"The humane society has also claimed there was evidence that some of the animals have undergone surgery by an untrained person, something Galkowski denied."

5. Yikes!

That opens up another whole can of worms. Perhaps a budding surgeon, or a serial killer, in the house?
