Eight Hybrid Big Cats Seized From Tiger King Park In Oklahoma

The seizure comes after the United States Department of Agriculture cited Lowe for poor living conditions because the big cats were seen in cages that were too small for them. Lowe was also accused of euthanizing a tiger cub without proper federal authorization in January.
In 2020, the Department of Justice accused Lowe of violating the Endangered Species Act by mistreating the animals and for exhibiting them without a license.
In the TMZ video, Lowe claims the big cat hybrids aren't covered by the Endangered Species Act and that his constitutional rights are being violated as the animals were taken away.
Lowe isn't the only character from the hit Netflix series Tiger King who had their animals taken away. An Indiana judge banned Tim Stark from owning animals ever again after being accused multiple times of animal abuse and misappropriating funds from his roadside zoo.
