Carole Baskin puts up $5K reward for missing Houston tiger

TAMPA, Fla. / CNN — Carole Baskin, founder of Big Cat Rescue and star of the Netflix docuseries “Tiger King,” is offering a $5,000 reward for the Bengal tiger that has been missing in Houston since Sunday.

Baskin made the announcement on her verified Instagram account on Thursday, May 14. She is offering the money to whoever has the big cat, provided that person will release the animal to a sanctuary that is accredited by the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries, and will work with the authorities to convict the people involved in the buying and selling of the tiger, Baskin said in the video.

The Bengal tiger was seen strolling in front of a Houston home Sunday before being put in an SUV and allegedly driven away by Victor Hugo Cuevas, who was out of jail on bail for an unrelated murder charge. The whereabouts of the tiger are currently unknown.

His attorney, Michael Elliott, said that Cuevas has been an occasional “babysitter” for the tiger.

“Clearly, they do have a bond,” Elliott said.

Owning a tiger is a violation of Houston law, a misdemeanor punishable with a maximum $500 fine, but it is legal under Texas state law with certain restrictions.
