Humane Officers Find Hoarder’s “House of Horrors” in Bustleton

Humane officers last night entered — in the words of PSPCA law enforcement director George Bengal — a “house of horrors” to rescue an unconscious man in his mid-70s from the day’s heat. The house, located on Bickley Street in Bustleton, was stacked with trash and filled with animal feces, along with dozens of cats, some of which were dead. Investigators said that the home’s roof was also in the process of caving in and the basement had been flooded. The unidentified homeowner was taken to Nazareth Hospital following the rescue by fire personnel. Relatives of the man initially called police after finding the house in its deplorable state.
