Homeowners in Covina are dealing with the fallout from the mortgage meltdown in their neighborhoods, as they provide upkeep on abandoned homes even as squatters and wild animals take over. "Squatters, gophers and rats have been seen near one neglected home in the unincorporated community around North Calera Avenue, according to Osorio Cruz, 45. "I heard people in there, so I called the police," Osorio said. "But they said they couldn't do anything because the bank left the house unlocked and abandoned." [SGV Tribune]
