POPO seizes 68 big cats from Tiger King park

Federal law enforcement officers have seized nearly 70 protected big cats from Jeffrey and Lauren Lowe’s Thackerville, Oklahoma, Tiger King Park, the Department of Justice said Thursday. The Lowes, who have been accused of mistreating the animals, are best known for their appearance in the popular “Tiger King” docu-series. 

Officials seized a total of 68 protected big cats — 46 tigers, 15 lion-tiger hybrids and seven lions — as well as one jaguar, the Justice Department said.

“This seizure should send a clear message that the Justice Department takes alleged harm to captive-bred animals protected under the Endangered Species Act very seriously,” acting Assistant Attorney General Jean E. Williams said in the DOJ statement.
