You may have thought the A&E reality show “Hoarders” is prone to a bit of exaggeration, but the phenomenon of hoarding is indeed a real and dangerous disorder. In what is being called one of the worst ever cases of hoarding, a 67-year old Dallas man was found dead late last week in his own home…buried under a 10-foot “wall of trash.” He had been missing since March 15th.

Rescue teams actually had to cut into the roof of the house to find the man, as the trash pile was so gigantic that they could not find any other way around it. While searching for him, the crew found jugs of excrement and urine, two dead dogs, and a raccoon. Though the man was already dead when they arrived, the team was at least able to save his dog, Buddy, who was severely dehydrated and trapped without food or water for days.

As bad as the incident was, this house is still believed to be cleaner than Rosie O’Donnell’s.
