Detroit Zoo caring for 30 animals recovered from garage

(Reuters) – More than two dozen animals, including some exotic species, have been recovered from a residential garage in suburban Detroit and taken to the Detroit Zoo for care, the zoo said on Thursday. The animals were found in small cages in the garage on Wednesday after an animal control officer found a coati wandering in a neighborhood in Warren, Michigan, the zoo said. “The conditions these animals were being kept in were deplorable,” Elizabeth Arbaugh, the zoo’s curator of mammals, said in a statement, adding they appeared to be in relatively good health considering the environment.
