Police recovered hundreds of animals from a northeast Las Vegas home on Sunday morning Jan. 21.

Police were alerted after a horse was reported roaming through the neighborhood on Sunday morning, according to Fox5.

Clark County Animal Control picked up the horse in the trailer.

The owner of the horse then contacted animal control but when officials visited the home, they discovered the owner had hoarded hundreds of animals.

Over 550 animals, including 13 horses, 150 hens and roosters, 400 pigeons, four turtles and two guinea pigs were discovered living in “deplorable” conditions, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.

Charges for the homeowner are pending, according to the newspaper.
