Doc Antle Charged in Tiger Escape-Tiger Preservation Station

I don't normally post anything that doesn't pertain to Primates, However....... I have come in contact with Antel more times than I'd like to remember. Not only does he buy and sell Primates but also sells and dumps baby tigers that aren't perfect. (personal experience seeing 3 of his cubs locked in a trailer for months). He uses his primates and tigers for commercials though says he is a preservation. He allows people to handle the small tigers to get their photos taken when IN FACT these animals should be with their moms, not hung onto like a stuffed animal. Talk about dangerous!!!!!!

Boy does he have the public snowed.........................

I can't even imagine being at his place when this happened! The fine he got, well, with all of the money this guy has, that's nothing to him, it's like a 5 dollar bill. Jail time would have nice.

August 29, 2010 Miami, FL: Visitors to Miami's Jungle Island stampeded over each other to avoid an escaped, 3 yr old, 500 lb. tiger named Mahesh. A monkey escaped while being transported through the zoo and 500 lb. Mahesh bounded over the 14-foot fence into the public area according to the Miami Herald. The attraction's three big cats -- which include a liger and a white tiger -- have been confined to a "night kennel," while the park investigates. "We were really scared. There were people crying,'' Miami mom Dorothy Evans told the Herald, adding that people knocked each other down as they sprinted toward the shelter. "People were running for their lives," Larry Rhodes, 46, of Pompano Beach, told the Sun Sentinel. Miami Fire Rescue Lt. Ignatius Carroll told the Herald that several people were injured while running, including a mother who fell on top of her 15-month old baby. Another guest was taken to a Miami hospital after suffering a panic attack. Bhagavan (Kevin) Antle, who also owns T.I.G.E.R.S. in Myrtle Beach, SC and who is the owner of Mahesh, was charged with one count of maintaining captive wildlife in an unsafe condition, resulting in threats to public safety. Park owner Bern M. Levine was charged with two second-degree misdemeanors for conditions resulting in the animals' escape. The charges for both men have a maximum penalty of $500, FWC officer Pino said.

  2. Dear teacher108;
    Thank you for your comment. If you have proof of this please send along and I will post, otherwise I have no way of knowing that what you say to be truthful.

    I have known Antle, "doc" for many years, it would be hard for me to believe otherwise, knowing how he treats his animmals.
