THE owners of a rare Albino Tiger that was kept locked in a cage at their Alicante home, have also been accused of drug trafficking and illegal possession of weapons.
A Spanish couple have been told to expect an appointment in front of the Court of Duty of the Guard very soon.
At their Alicante villa, Police found 100 marijuana plants, 120 grams of cocaine, a rifle, a shotgun, a carbine, a compressed air shotgun and multiple boxes of ammunition.
A Police press statement said they also found ‘several rooms ready to plant marijuana’ with a full irrigation system.
Neighbours had already drawn attention to the couple after reporting to Local Police that the tiger was seen kept in a cage by the swimming pool.
The Olive Press had earlier reported that local authorities were checking that the owner had appropriate licences for the possession of the near-extinct animal – of which only 20 exist in the world.
