An animal rights group says its undercover investigator did all he could to help animals while working for an exotic animal dealer in Texas.

The group says the worker can't be blamed for "a litany of horrors" exposed in a Dec. 15 raid.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals was responding to
allegations from an attorney for the owners of U.S. Global Exotics.

Attorney Lance Evans says worker Howard Goldman let snakes go
for weeks without food or water or clean cages.

Goldman has testified he cared for 1,500 to 3,000 snakes at once
and the company's owners wouldn't pay for food, medical and other

A judge is expected to decide this week who will get custody of
the more than 26,000 animals seized in the raid.
