ROMULUS, Mich. — Romulus police seized hundreds of exotics animals from an illegal collection on Thursday.

According to police, it was a tip from a concerned citizen that led them to investigate.

In the collection were 300 hedgehogs, six Flemish giant rabbits, three large iguanas, two kangaroos, a peacock, silver fox and a 16-foot reticulated python.

Police say they have identified the person they believe was keeping the animals, and they are looking to speak with him.

They did turn over all of the animals to people who could properly take care of them.
