ome bad neighbors play their music too loud or fight too much. And when neighbors are really bad, they sell drugs out of their apartment or they’re convicted sex offenders. Now, someone in Crown Heights’s Weeksville Houses has figured out a way to be what could be the worst neighbor possible. The tenant setup an indoor wild animal menagerie in a fifth floor apartment, containing “five pythons and a boa constrictor, as well as two alligators, two bearded dragons, a gecko, a scorpion, and a tarantula,” according to DNAInfo.com. Sure. Why not?
The neighbors apparently had no idea, thinking the worst thing going on in the apartment was that its 3 noisy pitbulls were running around, then peeing and pooping in the hallway. Imagine how surprised they would have been if one day one of the alligators got loose and was crawling around the hallway. How about stumbling upon a boa constrictor in the elevator?
The NYPD raided the apartment Friday. DNAinfo.com has photos of the seized animals. I’m pretty sure this tenant will have a hard time averting eviction.
