"A repairman in an apartment building in Malmö, sweden made an unusual discovery when he opened the wrong door by mistake in the basement, writing Home & Rent."
"In the room, there were 26 live snakes, including pythons and boa-constrictors, a mouse and a lizard, and a dozen dead snakes. The animals lacked water and some of them held in platslådor. Police describe the smell in the room as a “combination of rotten meat and feces,” according to the newspaper. There was also a risk that they could have escaped."
"the Man had not permission to have snakes in the basement of the apartment block, which is a requirement in Malmö. The animals were seized and euthanized later."
"Now he has been charged for cruelty to animals, alternatively, breach of the animal welfare act for a suspicion that he kept snakes in too bad conditions."
