Police Remove Creepy Menagerie from West Bend Home

West Bend in the news! I love the Associated Press’ geography lesson in the last paragraph.

Police investigating a sexual assault suspect discovered hundreds of snakes, mice and other small animals, including some that had died, in the foul-smelling basement of his southeastern Wisconsin home.

West Bend police say officers found 160 snakes, more than 250 mice, as well as geckos and frogs in the house Thursday. The snakes ranged from 6 inches to 2 feet (15 to 61 centimeters) in length.

Many were in poor health. Several dead snakes and mice were also removed.

A 42-year-old man has been arrested on preliminary charges of sexual assault, domestic abuse and battery. He is expected to be charged with additional criminal and civil code violations.

Neighbor Crystal Frederick called the incident “very disturbing.”

West Bend is about 40 miles (65 kilometers) northeast of Wisconsin.

    Liberal press getting all “their facts right” again….someday Nord will quote this article to prove West Bend is in Lahe Michigan.

    Nope, wouldn’t do that.  I’ve spent a lot of time NE of WI so I can tell you from experience that isn’t where West Bend is located.  But I might use your post to demonstrate your inability to spell even four letter words correctly.

    Just a typo.

    Excuses, excuses.  Odd, especially coming from someone that is never, ever wrong.

    BTW, there are numerous places where you could be “40 miles northeast of Wisconsin” and not be in Lake ( or Lahe, your call) Michigan.
