A judge revoked the license Monday of an Indianapolis pet shop, where hundreds of animals were seized during a raid last month.
On March 14, authorities seized nearly 400 dogs, birds, lizards and fish from the Fish Bowl Pet Shop on the city’s east side, after they were found to have been living in deplorable conditions.
Animal Care and Control issued 581 citations to the store’s owner, Bill Houston, following their investigation. Officials said they found dead fish lining the tops of aquarium tanks, animals lying in their own feces and sick and wounded lizards.
Houston has 20 days to decide on an appeal.
