Bids for demolition opened Tuesday for a Clay Township home that was so filthy, it was deemed a threat to public health.

The homeowner, 76-year-old James Robison, is charged with six counts of animal cruelty.

When the home in the 50000 block of Ida Street was discovered in April, there were only animals living inside.

The state of the home was so bad that officers who went into had to use respirators.

The floor was said to be covered in a slippery slime, and nearly 40 cats were removed from the home.

Robison is expected back in court on Aug. 25 for a pre-trial hearing.
