Spanish police find a tiger on the brink of extinction in an anti-drug operation
The event occurred in Alicante, Spain. An albino tiger, which is about to become extinct, was found in a Spanish police operation that was actually a drug raid.
The albino tiger is considered an endangered animal. There are only 20 specimens in the world and none are found in their natural environment, since to preserve their species they have been taken into captivity.
Apparently, the tiger was the mascot of the owners of the place. He was caged and managed to travel a long sector behind a barrier, which is used for exhibition.
The police arrived at the scene looking for drugs and firearms, but they found the tiger and a marijuana plantation. However, it transpired that the authorities already knew of the presence of the tiger in that place, since Health was reviewing the possible presence of an exotic animal in the sector.
The tiger was left in the hands of the corresponding authorities, while the fate of the feline was defined.
