Nearly 3,000 snakes, guinea pigs, chickens, parakeets, lovebirds, lizards, turtles, fish, and other exotic creatures were found Friday in a warehouse in Montclair, California.

Thousands of total animals were found inside a warehouse which is used as a storage facility, after a customer recently began smelling a foul odor.

Investigators say that other witnesses described seeing a man bringing in crates full of livestock earlier this week and others suggest the man was actually living inside the warehouse.

Many of the animals were reportedly dead once investigators came upon the grisly scene of animal genocide.

Inland Valley Humane Society and SPCA were both on the scene covered head to toe to prevent contamination from the animals as many of them had already began to decompose and even more were covered in their own feces and filth.

The Montclair Police Department worked with the humane society to respond to the complex after hearing noises coming from the area.

Investigators say the animals were found in "appalling" conditions with little ventilation in the warehouse that was covered in feces and trash.

The smell coming from this place has been horrendous," said Peggy Aing. "We knew what was going on for weeks. I started seeing animals being delivered, from snakes to tons and tons of bird, roosters."

The rescued animals will be relocated and taken into treatment facilities to help them recover. Investigators said most of the 1,000 to 3,000 animals in the building were alive, although some estimates suggest there are over 1,000 dead animal species inside the facility.
