Man Arrested in Tokyo for Keeping 51 Poisonous Snakes

"A man has been arrested in Tokyo for illegally keeping 51 poisonous snakes as pets. Here’s a news video showing police removing some of the snakes from his apartment:

His collection consisted of black mambas, green mambas, cobras, rhinoceros vipers, and other very poisonous snakes. There were also a lot of live mice in his apartment, which he had been using as food for the snakes. Police found out about the snakes after the man rushed himself to a hospital in July after sustaining a bite from one an eastern green mamba.

Neighbors interviewed by the press were quite shocked that so many dangerous snakes had been living nearby."
