Bexar County Sheriff Deputies seize two wild cats
Sheriff Javier Salazar blames popular shows like “Tiger King” for a booming interest in exotic animals.
San Antonio, TX. (KGNS) -Authorities in Texas had their hands full after seizing not one but two wild animals from a San Antonio home.
Bexar County Deputies responded, after a neighbor called about a bobcat at the home.
They not only found a five-year-old bobcat but also a 13-week old tiger cub.
Deputies say this is not the first tiger sighting in the area.
Sheriff Javier Salazar says deputies found a tiger roaming around last month and that the two cases are related.
The sheriff blames popular shows like “Tiger King” for a booming interest in exotic animals.
The cats are being cared for temporarily at the San Antonio Zoo.
The animals will eventually be taken to a wildlife sanctuary.
