A Wooster woman was discovered with fifty animals in her recently condemned home, Authorities reported, finding 48 cats and two turtles.

While the alleged hoarder seemed comfortable in her home, occupying the space for the past 20 years, the animals were not so lucky.

The Wooster law director reported that the ammonia levels inside the home exceeded that of a meth lab, primarily because of the uncleaned litter boxes. Due to these unsafe conditions, several kittens died and animal cruelty charges are possible.

Unfortunately, animal abuse is not an uncommon occurrence in Ohio.
