Wildlife refuge owner given house arrest, fine

AMARILLO, Texas The owner of an Amarillo wildlife refuge who offered to illegally transport endangered animals to another state has been fined two-thousand dollars.

Records show Charlie Azzopardi also must spend 180 days in home confinement and later serve three years of probation.

A federal magistrate in Amarillo on Friday sentenced Azzopardi.

Azzopardi pleaded guilty in March to a misdemeanor charge of offering to deliver two clouded leopards and a white tiger cub from Amarillo to Clinton, Oklahoma, for sale.

He didn’t immediately return a call today for comment.
