Sadly, another unfathomable situation that has become increasingly familiar as of lately, more than 550 animals in Las Vegas were found on Sunday living in “deplorable” conditions.

Las Vegas police and Clark County Animal Control officers rescued the animals after responding to a call about a horse that was wandering the streets unattended.

Upon arriving to the owner’s home, authorities discovered a shocking 13 horses, 150 hens and roosters, 400 pigeons, two guinea pigs, and four turtles which they subsequently confiscated from the premises.

According to the Review-Journal, Red Rock Search and Rescue officials were also on site to help load the animals on trucks Sunday afternoon.

Charges for the yet-to-be-named homeowner are pending.

In Las Vegas, based on the animal control officer’s discretion, it is a misdemeanor to overcrowd any animal in a small space or to fail to provide proper food, water, shelter or sanitation.

A first offender may face imprisonment for up to six months and a fine. The perpetrator may also be ordered to pay for costs for the care of the animals while they are under the supervision of animal control.

As previously reported by WAN, in November of last year, 164 Pomeranians were rescued from the back of a box truck located approximately 50 miles southwest of Las Vegas.
