Shannon Marie Morgan Wiki – Shannon Marie Morgan Biography
A woman, Shannon Marie Morgan, was arrested for animal cruelty after Citrus County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) deputies responded to an address in Beverly Hills regarding an animal cruelty complaint on Wednesday, December 7. Agents said they were “overwhelmed” by the smell of ammonia immediately upon entering. The “accumulation” of feces, garbage and rotting food resulted in an infestation of flies and cockroaches, according to the sheriff’s office.
Agents claimed they discovered multiple caged reptiles and rodents, as well as cats and rats moving between rooms, as they moved through the house. They said one bedroom housed 50 rats in cages, with more than 300 more roaming free. “It was blatantly obvious; these animals were deprived of all their basic needs. The accumulation of fecal matter and urine in the house and cages led to an infestation of flies, cockroaches and other insects,” the Sheriff’s Office said. Agents said a child was rescued from a trash-filled third bedroom, “where even the mattress was covered in cockroaches.” The floor was reportedly covered in blood from where the cats killed a rat.
