It's being described as the "largest animal hoarding case in Oakland County history" with animal control officers having to remove 178 cats last month from a home in West Bloomfield Township. Officials say that the extreme hoarding case came to the attention of the Oakland County animal control officials during a welfare check last month and it has taken several weeks for all of the cats to be removed from the home.

According to a report in the Detroit News, officials with the Oakland County Animal Shelter say that 60 of the 178 cats found at the home had to be euthanized because of severe illness or aggression. The couple who own the home apparently lived at a different address. They could face criminal charges including animal cruelty.
