The town's residents told authorities that the couple had once owned an exotic pet store and, when the store closed, they brought the animals home to live with them.
Several wallabees, flying squirrels and a monkey were among the many exotic species being kept in the home.
The animals were found in fairly good medical condition, albeit in dirty surroundings. "Upon entry, it was a very horrific scene," Musser told WSBT. "The smells were unbearable."
