Calif. Police Find Critter 'Menagerie'

A menagerie, some 86 critters in all, were found in a Fort Ord home. Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals officials, called to the home after receiving a call that the household was exceeding the two animals per dwelling limit, were surprised by the number of animals.
"We took our van. We really didn't know what we were getting into," said Judi Adams, humane investigation supervisor for the SPCA of Monterey County.
The woman in the house had accumulated the critters over time and was trying to find homes for them. There were 56 fish, six cats, six rats, five frogs, four geckos, three ferrets, two lovebirds, two lizards, one guinea pig and one dog.
"She knew she'd gotten in over her head. She was more than happy to surrender them to us," Adams said.
SPCA spokeswoman Beth Brookhouser said she does not believe charges will be filed against the woman.
