Pa. Cops Find Child Living with 80+ Animals

May 23, 2013  | 

Three residents of Ephrata, Pa., face child-endangerment charges after police discovered more than 80 animals living in deplorable conditions in a mobile home.

Ephrata officers arrested Robert P. Herman, 55; his son, William L. Herman, 24; and and his daughter-in-law, Pearl M. Herman, 24, reports Lancaster Online. Police arrested the three April 3, after receiving an anonymous complaint.

William and Robert Herman also face animal cruelty charges. Robert Herman's bed-ridden wife and another son won't face charges.

In addition to the five people, the residence was home to an array of animals that included peeps, turtles, exotic birds, cats, dogs, ducks and pot-bellied pigs.

This is really sad. It's better for the animals and the people remaining to remove the pets.
