On Wednesday, authorities rescued nearly 300 rabbits, birds, and other animals from a filthy home in New York and charged a self-help book author with cruel confinement of animals.

The rescue was part of “Operation Open Cage” which started Oct. 1 when investigators were contacted by animal control officers who reported a hoarding situation in the hamlet of Miller Place on Long Island.

During the raid, officials found a total of 118 rabbits, 150 birds, 15 cats, seven tortoises, three snakes, and several mice living among filth, many surrounded by their own feces and urine and covered with cockroaches, the district attorney said.

The owner of the home, Karin Keyes, 51, was charged with multiple counts of cruel confinement of animals. She’s a social worker and the author of a self-published book titled “Journey Into Awareness: Reclaiming Your Life.” Information on Keyes’ attorney wasn’t available. 

Brookhaven Town Council member Jane Bonner said in a statement, “The level of cruelty and the abhorrent conditions that the animals were subjected to is beyond comprehension. The awful neglect that they were forced to endure cannot be excused or explained in any way.”
