According to USA Today, Department of Natural Resources officers showed up at Ronnie Chapman’s home after receiving a complaint about the wild animals.

Chapman said he was rehabilitating the animals, but the officers didn’t believe him because “there was enough compelling evidence” to prove otherwise. As a result, Chapman was hit with a $300 fine.
