PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Workers with the Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals were evaluating nearly a dozen animals taken today from a home in the city’s Kensington section.

Found along with ten live animals — cats, turtles, and a rat — were more than a dozen dead animals.  Those included kittens, snakes, and an iguana.

The PSPCA says it got a tip about the animals inside the home. The investigation is ongoing and no charges were immediately filed.
