THIEF RIVER FALLS, MN (WDAZ-TV) - There's a disturbing case of animal hoarding in Thief River Falls.

Police have spent the last week trapping more than 50 cats kept by an elderly woman.

It all started as a welfare check on a women who lived at 408 Arnold St. in Thief River Falls. Officers who went to the house say conditions were

the worst they have seen with cat feces strewn throughout at the home.

Over the last week, they trapped 51 cats in the house. They were brought to the Pennington County Humane Society where they are already at their limit.

Humane Society officials say the cats removed from the home are in good conditions. Those who help removed the cats had to wear respirators because of the air quality in the home.

All of the cats will be put up for adoption. If you are interested you can call the Pennington County Humane Society at 218-681-8045.
