FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Authorities in Fargo are removing dozens of cats from a home after discovering what they say is an extreme case of animal hoarding.

KFGO radio reports (https://bit.ly/1hLS6WY ) that 68 cats have been taken from the home, and police say the total might eventually reach 100. They say some of the cats are feral and have to be trapped. Lt. Joel Vettel says it’s the worst case of animal hoarding he can recall.

Some of the cats are being taken to shelters. Those that are sick or too wild to be adopted are being euthanized.

Police say it’s unlikely the homeowner will be cited because of health issues.
