MINNEAPOLIS - A Minneapolis home is deemed unfit for humans after police removed both living and dead animals from the home on Tuesday.

Police said were called to the home on the 2400 block of Jefferson Street NE to execute a search warrant.

When police arrived at the home they found about 38 cats, four dogs and three guinea pigs. There were also 20 dead cats removed from the home.

Police have not said who or how many people are living at the residence.

A note was posted on the door of the house which sites a housing code violation.

It says, in part, that the "house was declared unfit for human habitation and dangerous to life and health because of clutter and unsanitary conditions."

The note informs the residents that they must improve the living conditions by Feb. 24 or the home will be condemned.
