In connection with a drug investigation, the Portage County Sheriff’s Office and Mogadore police were executing a search warrant at a Second Street home on July 5 when they made the discovery of a large number of non-human residents. The tally included five dogs, one cat, a rabbit, four ferrets, five snakes, three tarantulas, a scorpion, two alligators, three turtles, one snapping turtle, an iguana, 300 fish, six ducks, and two geese.
