(Scroll down for video) A man was arrested on charges of animal cruelty after allegedly adopting animals in order to slaughter and eat them, police in Washington said.

Olympia Police said that they have arrested David Williford, for holding dozens of rabbits, guinea pigs, rats and dogs in horrific conditions.

Investigators found blood stains, dirt and dead bodies strewn all over his basement and backyard. About 50 animals that were still alive were rescued from his property, but were described as desperate for food and water.

Williford said that he kept those animals in order to eat them. He found the animals using Craigslist. Several dogs were found in the suspect’s attic with no light, no water, no food and no warm bedding.

When they were rescued, the dogs jumped into the arms of animal control officers. The incident came to light after a person who visited Williford’s home, saw the abuse and called the police.

Williford was booked into jail and his bail was set at $150,000.
