Okaloosa Co. veterinary shut down for poor animal care
An Okaloosa County veterinary assistant program has been closed down after more than 200 animals - including a 5-foot green anaconda - were discovered by animal control officers.
They found them at the Choice High School on Lewis-Turned Boulevard. Other animals found were than 100 rats, 13 chickens, 11 ducks and 22 rabbits - six peacocks, and much more.
Officials say the animals didn't have clean bedding, food and water, and snakes were kept in an outside shed with no heat.
