Revere Police discovered a wild kingdom in a condo on Revere Beach Boulevard last Tuesday, Aug. 27th, with pythons, rats, lizards and some cats.
Neighbors called the police around 7:23 p.m. last Tuesday to report a foul odor coming from the condo, the sounds of animals living in the unit and owners who hadn’t been seen in weeks.
Police responded and found the door unlocked and heard cats meowing inside.
They also smelled a pungent odor coming from the unit.
Once inside, they found numerous pets that had apparently been left behind by owners that disappeared into thin air.
Police had to remove a python snake, two cats, a pet rat, and two full-grown lizards.
Animal Control moved all of the animals to a safe environment.
The owners of the pets and of the unit still have not been located.
“The people who live there haven’t been seen in weeks and no one knows why,” said Police Lt. Jeff Graff. “As far as I know, they’ve not been located since.”
The most recent property assessment from the City has unit 9 being owned by Maureen Jackson, though it wasn’t apparent if she was still the owner in question.
