Exotic animals seized from Mid-Valley ‘narco zoo’

Deputy Chief Patrol Agent Austin Skero said on Twitter Thursday that Border Patrol agents recently assisted federal and state agencies in seizing “numerous exotics” at a “pseudo-narco zoo” in the Mid-Valley.

Authorities seized a Bengal tiger, emus, llamas, porcupines and a kinkajou, according to the tweet. The animals were turned over to Texas zoos for proper veterinary care.
