Once again, Tyga’s ambitions to live out the lavish life of a rap star is landing him in boiling hot water.
The California Wildlife department just confiscated his pet tiger and if they push hard enough, the case could go to court and the Young Money prince could end up on an iron vacation.
Tyga’s pet tiger has just been ripped from his clutches — after authorities claimed the rapper was illegally in possession of the exotic animal … and now Tyga could face criminal charges.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, California Wildlife officers received a report last week that a tiger was housed at Tyga’s home in Ventura County.
We’re told a warden responded to the home — and Tyga told him he had removed the cat from the house (presumably due to complaints) and placed it at a private animal shelter.
According to law enforcement, Wildlife officers picked up the 7-month-old cat at the shelter and transferred it to a state facility for safekeeping … while they investigate.
We’re told Tyga could face misdemeanor charges of possession of a prohibited species … punishable by up to six months in jail.
For what it’s worth, the word revolving around the case that Tyga treated the wild animal very well and it wasn’t be used in an underground “jungle book” fighting ring. Still, this is another struggle that could have been avoided all together.
