Dozens of birds and rabbits seized from St. Petersburg home

More than 70 rabbits and 65 birds were seized from a St. Petersburg house Wednesday.

Animal control officers said they found the animals living in terrible conditions and that many of them were being kept in small plastic kennels.

Deputies from Pinellas County Sheriff's Office were called to the home at 4650 68th St. N. to assist the SPCA, who is leading the investigation. Officials spent several hours removing animals from the home.

The animals are now in the care of the SPCA. They will provide them with food, shelter and medical care before adopting them out to homes..." More
