After executing a search warrant in a ranch in the municipality of San Gabriel, personnel from the Jalisco delegation of the Attorney General's Office of the Republic, seized several exotic animals.

This federal agency announced that the investigation folder was initiated after elements of the Secretary of National Defense (Sedena) informed the Federal Public Prosecutor's Office (MPF) of a ranch in the vicinity of the community of Jiquilpan, in the municipality of San Gabriel, where several animals such as a Bengal tiger were observed from the outside.

Subsequently, the Federal Public Prosecutor's Office requested the search, and then the Federal Ministerial Police (PFM) of the Criminal Investigation Agency (AIC), with the support of specialized experts, carried out the search.

The following were seized inside the ranch: a Bengal tiger, seven buffaloes and two ostriches.

The property and the seized animals were handed over to the Federal Public Prosecutor's Office in Jalisco, who will continue with the investigation to find the whereabouts of the owner of the ranch.

The animals were handed over to the Procuraduría Federal de Protección al Ambiente (Profepa).

In May 2021, the Attorney General's Office made another similar seizure in a property located at kilometer 13 of the highway to Saltillo, in the Lomas del Pedregal neighborhood, in Zapopan.

Several exotic animals were found there, including an eagle, two Bengal tigers, a crocodile and a turtle, as well as 22 birds, seven pigs, a pony, 26 sheep, three horses and four dogs.


  1. I wish exotics were that easily smuggled into the US!

    1. They are actually. We just don't have the economic capacity to obtain them, tiger king. @357

    2. You don’t need to smuggle them you can buy them in states like Maryland,Ohio,Florida,Conn,Tex and a few others

  2. What it comes down to, is animal awareness. Humane treatment for all. There has to be some crappy trauma involved for these creatures to wind up on someone's Ranch. Just like drugs, there is a bloody, violent route to the destination.

  3. Segun fue el rancho de "el pato" comandante de mascota sierra sur jalisco y homered de confianza de la gallina y la firma de las 4 letras. Segun se escapo por eso los bloqueos en autlan mascota el grullo

  4. Zambada wants zacatecas back, he knows the only way is to take mencho out.
    MAYO snitched!

  5. Didn’t some in the “Narcoblockades in El Grullo & Autlan, Jalisco” article the other day comment that their property was raided here and their neighbors had exotic animals. The comment was posted before this article came out . Who ever posted do you have any additional information on this?

  6. The disappearance machine! And even though he's captured he will never talk!

    1. I doubt he will fold like the famous drama queens from sinaloa.
      CDS aka snitchaloas lol

    2. 3:57: Don't you think anything related to the word "smuggled" is not easy at all?
