Woman Lives With Over 100,000 Cockroaches Which She Calls Her Children
Looks like you’re off the hook, crazy cat hoarding lady down the road. There seems to be a bigger psycho on the loose. Meet Yuan Meixia, the proud roommate to over 100,000 cockroaches. She not only lives with these roaches but she refers to them as her “children.”
“These are all my children, my babies,” - Yuan Meixia, Southern Metropolis News.
The story sounds a lot worse than it actually is. These roaches are actually Yuan’s business. She is an insect breeder and really lives in a separate home, but visits a roach-filled house every day. She raises these roaches and eventually sells them off to a pharmaceutical company to be used as medicines.
So going back to that “these are all my children” business, she sells them off to become medicine just like any other parent on the planet?
