Omaha veterinarians volunteered time today at the Nebraska Humane Society for a triage operation, sorting through more than 200 sick animals found in a home on the city’s north side. The society’s Darcy Beck says police chasing a crime suspect noticed a horrible smell at a home in the neighborhood and sent other officers, who found hundreds of animals inside. Some were alive, but cops found 56 bagged and frozen dogs and cats. Beck says it’s the kind of case they see every now and then.It’s “animal hoarding” and though the owner had a permit for breeding, she probably didn’t even know how many animals she had. Many of the cats are sick and will have to be destroyed. The owner threatened to kill herself if the animals were taken from her, and while she’s been charged with a variety of animal abuse crimes, she’s been placed in a mental health center for evaluation.
