There’s no doubt that baby Tigers are adorable, but having the exotic animal as a pet in your home may not be the best idea – even if you are a celebrity.
Not only are they dangerous, but they are illegal to own if you are not granted permission, which is why YMCMB rapper, Tyga, may be facing criminal charges in the near future.
The “Rack City” rapper posts tons of pictures of his pet tiger that he bought not too long ago, but it’s already been confiscated by authorities.
According to TMZ:
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, California Wildlife officers received a report last week that a tiger was housed at Tyga’s home in Ventura County.
We’re told a warden responded to the home — and Tyga told him he had removed the cat from the house (presumably due to complaints) and placed it at a private animal shelter.
The site goes on:
According to law enforcement, Wildlife officers picked up the 7-month-old cat at the shelter and transferred it to a state facility for safekeeping … while they investigate.
We’re told Tyga could face misdemeanor charges of possession of a prohibited species … punishable by up to six months in jail.
Worth noting, we’re told Tyga took good care of the tiger. Sources close to Tyga tell us, the rapper didn’t realize it was illegal to own … and as soon as he realized, he gave it to a sanctuary.
Hopefully he didn’t get too attached. That tiger is pretty cute… we wonder if King Cairo was afraid of him?
