Man Housing a Tiger and Alligator Is Bitten

October 06, 2003|From Times Wire Reports

A tiger and an alligator found in a Manhattan apartment were sent to an Ohio wildlife preserve while their owner recovered from bite wounds inflicted by the more than 400-pound cat.

Police said Antoine Yates, 31, would face reckless endangerment charges after he gets out of a hospital in Philadelphia, where he fled to after initially being treated in New York. He was listed in good condition.

A team of animal control officers, police and Bronx Zoo workers removed the animals from Yates' apartment in Harlem.
