The agency indicated that the owner presented authorized documentation for the possession of the 2 tigers, which revealed that the male is aged 10 months and the female two years, 9 months.
However, both tigers were confiscated as the owner did not have the corresponding registry or the authorized management plan from the Ministry of the Environment and Natural Resources (Semarnat), where the specifications of the facilities that guarantee the safety of both the specimens and the civilian population, among other specific handling situations that this type of animal must have.
For this reason, the precautionary impoundment of the two tigers was imposed until the owner complies with the measures that will be ordered by Profepa.
