More than 70 rabbits and about 50 birds were being removed from a Pinellas County home by the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office.
Many of the animals were being kept in small kennels in the back yard of a home at 4650 68th St. N, sheriff's deputies said. Pinellas County property records indicate the home is owned by Sevdo and Desa Aslanovich.
The SPCA found a few cats in the residence as well, but "nothing extraordinary," Communications Director Megan Trethewey said. Among the 50 birds are a mix of pheasants, pigeons and Chukar partridges.
Officers had been helping the SPCA remove animals since around 9 this morning and were expected to finish this afternoon.
