NORTH MASSAPEQUA - A couple who runs a nonprofit wildlife operation has been ordered to clear the animals out of their home.

Cathy and Robert Horvath have been running their nonprofit, Wildlife in Need of Rescue and Rehabilitation, out of their North Massapequa home for more than two decades. They say they've had thousands of animals come through their doors.

Last week, town officials came by for an inspection and ordered that the Horvaths move their operation elsewhere, adding that the wildlife they're housing is in violation of town code.

Town officials will return for another inspection next Tuesday.
