More Than 100 Animals Seized From San Antonio Home

More than 100 dogs, cats, ducks, pheasants and a peacock have been removed from a San Antonio home amid concerns for overcrowding and living conditions.

Officials with San Antonio's Animal Care Services on Friday took custody of the various creatures, including at least one turtle.

ACS spokeswoman Audra Houghton says most of the animals appear to be well-fed, but the living conditions could be hazardous. The dozens of animals were found inside the home and in the backyard.

Authorities say the homeowner has had previous issues with ACS over having large numbers of animals on her property. The woman was cooperating with ACS as state health officials also review whether she has any issues.
