CLEVELAND, Ohio (REUTERS) - Humane society members wearing protective masks removed nearly 300 animals including pigeons, chickens and rabbits from an Ohio man's reeking house this week.

Most of the animals are expected to survive including some that were sick, Ms Sheila Marquis, an officer with the Humane Society of Dayton, Ohio, told Reuters on Saturday.

Workers on Thursday took away 60 pigeons, chickens and roosters from the house in Huber Heights, a suburb of Dayton.

They returned the following day for 223 animals including 100 pigeons and 30 rabbits.
