ACAPULCO, Guerrero – The Federal Prosecutor for Environmental Protection (Profepa) said they have seized a Bengal tiger, with evidence of abuse, and a River crocodile, measuring 1.6 meters long, from a home in Acapulco during an operation.

In a statement, Profepa claimed that staff members, in coordination with the Attorney General’s Office (PGR), discovered a female Bengal tiger (Panthera tigris) weighing approximately 200 kilos (441 lbs), abandoned in a cage made of metal grills and wire mesh.

Similarly, the crocodile (Crocodylus acutus) was found in another large cage built with four wooden posts and wire mesh, containing a small pool.

The two specimens were attended to by the Management Unit for the Conservation of Wildlife (UMA) of the Zoochilpan Zoo, who monitored their health in accordance with the provisions set by the General Wildlife Law, according to Profepa.

During their health inspection, no microchips or identification devices were discovered on the animals, so their origins remain unknown.

The Bengal tiger and crocodile were sedated and transported to the UMA of the Zoochilpan Zoo in Chilpancingo, where under their custody the animals will be able to receive proper medical care and rehabilitation.
