If we owned a zoo, let’s hope it doesn’t turn out like this. Jeff Lowe is an animal lover, but the feds are stepping in and taking those creatures from the Tiger King star.
Feds executed a search and seized animals from Jeff Lowe’s zoo according to TMZ. According to Lowe, this warrant was issued on Thursday morning at his Tiger King Park in Thackerville, Oklahoma. They took his animals away and he believes this is a violation of his constitutional rights.
They are claiming this was done in the name of the Endangered Species Act. The warrant was issued by a federal judge this week in the Eastern District of Oklahoma. In the video that Jeff Lowe sent in, the feds are seen carrying away one of his liligers, an animal he claims is not on the endangered species list.
Now they are also concerned that the feds are going to spay and neuter the animals. That means the bloodlines will stop with those animals.
Jeff Lowe released a statement saying: “This is why Lauren and I are moving overseas to take over an animal refuge there. ‘Tiger King’ made the USDA look so incompetent that they have a vendetta against everyone that was featured on the show.”
We will have to see how this situation ends. Hopefully, the feds have somewhere nice to put all of the animals that they’re taking today. Obviously, that is a big concern as well.
