 – Another incident of animal hoarding was reported when police removed 87 animals from a home on Mantoloking Road.

  Brick Police said they got a call from the resident asking for help with the animals on the evening of May 4. Officers arrived and were assisted by Brick Township Fire District No. 1 and Berkeley HazMat. 

  The authorities removed 83 cats and three dogs, police said. There were no deceased animals on scene. At this time, the investigation is ongoing.

  This residence is different from the one where 180 animals were found at a home on Arrowhead Park Drive last year.
