Thomas Cryderman, 26, was charged with abandonment/cruelty of animals.

Cryderman also received 47 ordinance violations, according to police.

Last month, 10 pit bulls and other exotic animals were removed from Cryderman’s Muskegon home. Some of the dogs were tied up outside the house and four were found inside — along with two dead snakes, a dead spider, a small alligator and an iguana.

Police said the animals were apparently abandoned and left to fend for themselves.
