    One of the chickens seized from the Lakeside home on Thursday, Jan. 28, 2016.

    The discovery of several dead animals at a Lakeside home Thursday led to the seizure of approximately 100 animals, according to officials with the Department of Animal Services.

    Animal control officers found dead chickens and a dead rabbit at a home on Westhill Road.

    As a result, officials seized 88 chickens, seven Bengal cats, four rabbits, two bearded dragon lizards and a wolf/dog blend with two puppies according to a county news website.

    The county's report claims a dog was underweight and several lizards were so cold that investigators initially thought they were dead.

    The home has had complaints in the past, according to county officials.
