A French lady in Rouen had lived with three pigs and more than 20 other animals in a townhouse without ever having allowed the animals to roam.

The animal protection agency SNPA discovered the animals last Tuesday after authorities were alerted to a strong foul smell by a neighbour.

Alongside the pigs, the animal protectors discovered two dogs, a goat, a few cats, quite a number of hares and chinchillas. According to the neighbour, “some of the animals had been enclosed in this small house for at least ten years”. The agency took all the animals under its protection.
