Animal House of Horrors


Do you know what’s going on next door? Who the individuals are that live there? Have you done your own people search to find out if they have broken the law? Well, you should. They may be a danger to you, the people around you, and even your pets.

Are these your neighbors? A people search can confirm it.

50 animals were killed by a fire this month in Florida in what is being called an Animal House of Horrors. 45 of the beasts were cats, 4 were dogs, 2 were raccoons, and 1 was a Macaw. 14 other canines and one feline were rescued from the home, located in Merritt Island.

Brevard County Police arrested Jacquelyn Traum, 67, and Daniel Brantley, 55, for animal cruelty. The couple are facing nearly 80 counts in all (4 felony and 74 misdemeanor). An investigation into the fire found that the animals were living in “deplorable” conditions—packed into cramped quarters.

The “Animal House of Horrors”

How could someone keep so many animals in their home is one thing. Surely, they loved animals. Maybe they felt the need to save every stray. But why they would provide the creatures with such terrible care after “saving” them is another. And another question remains. Did anyone know what was going on in Traum’s and Brantley’s home? Had they ever been reported? Did anyone do a people search or address search regarding the couple?

Conduct a people search of anyone you meet.

Lots of people today are using people search engines when confronted with questionable individuals. High-quality websites like Hero Searches allows regular people like you and me to find information about people—no matter who they are. If there’s any chance of a criminal background regarding the subjects in question, Hero will find it.

It’s hard to know what goes on behind closed doors. That’s why it’s important that you look into the background of the people you live near or interact with. They may have a dangerous past that could very well affect your life. Don’t give them the chance to do that.
