PHOENIX, Ariz. (AP, KYMA/KECY) - Authorities arrested a Phoenix man; he allegedly offered to sell a tiger cub to undercover police officers for $20,000.
Police said they arrested 25-year-old Carlos Castro-Alcaraz Monday on felony wildlife offenses after advertising the cub for sale on social media.
According to police, officers later served a warrant at Castro-Alcaraz’s home. They reported finding an alligator and a dozen snapping turtles.
Authorities then seized the animals and turned over to the Arizona Game and Fish Department.
However, it was unclear Tuesday if Castro-Alcaraz has a lawyer yet who can speak on his behalf.
