Re: Is this obsession or pure love? 1 Year, 10 Months ago Karma: 36
I saw this news article online and I had to share it. I am an animal lover myself but I just don't know what to feel about this.

Update: Los Angeles animal control found 84 snakes (some poisonous) and eight alligators during yesterday's investigation at a home in Thousand Oaks. The police led the homeowner, Todd Kates, away in handcuffs, the Los Angeles Times reports. Kates kept some of the animals in his home but also rented a storage space outside of city limits, where he kept more reptiles. In addition to the snakes and alligators, animal control also seized turtles, birds, and other animals, representative Don Barre told the Los Angeles Times.

Police were alerted to the reptiles after a cobra from the house got loose twice in the last three years, and bit a neighborhood dog during one escape.

Was he a hoarder?

Can't really answer the question since we don't know why he had those animals. He could have been running an illegal reptile shop out of his home. :/

Apparently the reptiles and animals are his personal collection. His family said he nurtured and loved the animals and was saddened that he was led away in handcuffs and charged with animal cruelty. The son said his father was heart-broken over the matter and hoped most of the animals would return to them after the investigation. Hope that shed some more light. P.
