LAS VEGAS – (AP) – Authorities say a woman who asked them if it was legal to keep tigers at home in rural Nevada was arrested after police found three of the animals in her backyard.
The Nye County sheriff’s office says 34-year-old Trisha Meyer had called for information on a permit to have tigers.
Sgt. David Boruchowitz (buh-ROOK’-uh-witz) says deputies found the big cats in the backyard surrounded by a 4-foot fence, and eight monkeys in the home.
Eight monkeys and three tigers! Was she charging admission?
