Allegany Man Had Over 300 Reptiles


The Allegany man whose three cobras were seized by law enforcement on Thursday kept over 300 reptiles in his home, according to the New York Department of Environmental Conservation.

Officials say that charges are pending against 70 year old William Engelder, but no charges appeared to have been filed as of Sunday morning.

In addition to the cobras, among the reptiles seized by DEC officers at the home were other venomous snakes, six Gila monsters, and a large number of turtles. A Department Spokesperson said that contrary to some online reports, there were no alligators seized.
