Tiger King’s Doc Antle Indicted On Charges Of Animal Cruelty, Trafficking

Doc Antle Of Tiger King Rips Carole Baskin Over Her DWTS Appearance


Stop me if you’ve heard this before but a grown man with a pony tail has been indicted on felony charges.

This time it’s *spins wheel* Bhagavan “Doc” Antle.

After a months-long investigation, the animal trainer popularized by Netflix’s Tiger King was indicted Thursday by a Frederick County grand jury on felony counts of wildlife trafficking and conspiracy, plus multiple misdemeanor counts of animal cruelty and conspiracy to violate the Endangered Species Act, the Chicago Tribune reports. Two of Antle’s daughters have also been indicted on charges of animal cruelty and violating the Endangered Species Act.

The investigation found that Antle and an owner of a roadside zoo in Virginia trafficked lion cubs between Virginia and South Carolina.

Keith Wilson, the roadside zoo owner of Wilson’s Wild Animal Park in Virginia, sounds like a real peach.

In August 2019, 119 animals — including lions, tigers, bears, camels, goats, and water buffalo — were seized from Wilson’s roadside zoo after a judge found that Wilson “cruelly treated, neglected, or deprived” the animals of adequate care.

Wilson and his nephew were indicted in November on 46 counts of animal cruelty.

Don’t let this news distract you from the fact that Don Lewis is still missing and someone knows something.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
