2 goats, 25 chickens seized from apartment

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) -- Two goats and 25 chickens were seized from a Fair Haven apartment Tuesday morning. 

Workers from New Haven's Livable City Initiative say the sight and the stench was unbearable. 
"Ugh, pretty bad," said Rafael Ramos, the Deputy Director of Housing Code Enforcement. "The odor associated with farm animals."
Inside the Rockhill Road home, workers from Livable City Initiative found nine chickens covered in feces in a crate in the basement, five running loose, 11 outside, and one was quarantined. They also found two goats in the bedroom. 

"Did you know they had that many farm animals," News 8's Erin Logan asked David Quoka, the building's landlord. 

"No absolutely not," he said. "I was shocked as everybody else when we opened the doors." 

Quoka says he's been renting the home to the family for 15 years.
Recently neighbors have been complaining of the odor. Across the street, Emy Rodriguez has been dealing with it, so are family members who visit. ..."  More, video & photos
