“Tiger King” star Jeff Lowe is a wanted man in Las Vegas for reportedly skipping a Wednesday court date — the latest in a series of legal woes for the big cat enthusiast.

The 56-year-old missed a hearing in connection to a 2017 case where he was hit with four charges — three of which were for having wild animals without the proper license or permit, a Las Vegas Municipal Court clerk told TMZ.

In 2018, Lowe, who took over Joe Exotic’s Oklahoma zoo, was convicted of using animals illegally to make money in Las Vegas, the report said.

But, in order to avoid time behind bars, he agreed to obey the law, according to the news outlet.

A judge on Wednesday issued four bench warrants — one for each count — for Lowe’s arrest.

Just last weekend, Lowe and his wife, Lauren Lowe, were busted in Oklahoma City for allegedly driving under the influence.

Last month, the couple’s wildlife park was raided by the feds, TMZ had also reported.

Dozens of agents swarmed the Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park and seized 68 animals, including lions, tigers, jaguars and hybrids, according to Oklahoma’s local news station, ABC 13 KNTV.

The raid stemmed from the Lowe’s alleged inaction to improve the park’s condition after they received several citations regarding the welfare of their animals, the report said.
