Following a seven-month-long investigation by an undercover PETA employee, U.S. Global Exotics, a multi-million dollar importer and wholesaler of exotic “pets”, was shut down. In December, more than 26,000 animals were seized from the facility in Arlington, Texas – the largest animal seizure in history.
Veterinarians and other experts from around the country flew to Arlington to set up a rescue facility where the animals were nursed back to health.
See the before and after pictures of the rescued animals.
