Pet Store Owner Tipped a Prostitute With a Rare Exotic Animal
There was a crisis at the Zany Zoo Pet Store in Eugene, Oregon last month. Someone broke in and stole an adorable exotic animal called a bush baby.
A bush baby looks basically like a cross between a cat, a monkey, a Chihuahua, and a Gremlin. Police investigated, and eventually tracked down the animal a few weeks later. It turns out a prostitute had him in her hotel room.
The cops started digging deeper, and eventually they figured out what happened. The owner of the pet store gave the prostitute the bush baby as a tip. Then he claimed it was stolen.
His name is Nathan McClain, and cops arrested him a few days later when they saw him walking out of an adult porn shop high on meth. He's facing several charges. The bush baby is safe at an animal sanctuary.
