ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The state of New Mexico removed three young children from a Northeast Heights Albuquerque home Monday as cops and city workers removed more than 50 snakes and other reptiles. A city worker described the home as “disgusting.” A neighbor called the situation “creepy.”

Albuquerque animal control officers pulled snakes, lizards, and rats from a home near Tramway and Montgomery boulevards.
