VANCOUVER, Wash. -- Animal Control officers removed dozens of venomous snakes from a Vancouver home on Thursday. They also removed an alligator.

The home on East 32nd Street had everything from 'harmless' pythons to highly venomous snakes.

Animal Control officers told KGW that all of the snakes and the alligator were kept in a locked room and were well cared for, but the owner did not have the proper documentation.
