A woman has been cited after police and wildlife officials say they found about a 100 dead ball pythons in a feces-filled house in Jupiter.

The discovery was made in mid-February during a welfare check by police at a home on Timberline Drive. The owner was taken under the Baker Act for an evaluation.

A wildlife officer, who was called to the scene, said he was warned to wear gloves, foot booties and a face mask before entering the residence.

He said an entire floor was covered in animal feces and 30-to-40 plastic bins were found in a bedroom that housed two-to-four dead snakes per bin.

Two dogs, two red-foot tortoises, two parakeets and two ball pythons were discovered alive in the home, the wildlife officer said.

The owner was cited on March 13 for animal abandonment, a second degree misdemeanor, and given an April 12th court date.
