_Bobo was found and shot five times with an AK-47 assault rifle by a wildlife officer. In 2005, after suffering from a string of setbacks including a house fire and the death of his 22-year-old cougar, Missy, and his 22-year-old lion, Elvis, Sipek paid $3,200 for two tiger cubs named Bo and Little Bo, according to a Palm Beach Post story written at the time. It is unclear if these are the tigers that wildlife officials are collecting this morning. Just last fall, Sipek told a Palm Beach Post reporter that he lets his tigers sleep with him in the house. "When it's cold like last night, they are very warm to cuddle up to," Sipek said at the time.
Jane, Tarzan's former mate, could not be reached for comment. According to tabloid reports, the couple allegedly split years ago over Tarzan's refusal to seek fully-clothed acting roles in the wake of the Tarzan franchise's waning popularity. Tarzan's former simian sidekick, Cheetah, who now runs a Silicon Valley venture capital firm, told reporters he was "saddened and troubled" to see his old friend in trouble with the law. "I warned Tarzan about this years ago," said Cheetah. "That swinging on vines and wrestling with big cats was so 1950's, and he needed to hang up the loincloth. I recognized that. He didn't, and this is the result."
