Indiana wildlife center owned by Tim Stark, man featured in Netflix ‘Tiger King,’ auctioned off after court ruling

CHARLESTOWN, Ind. – Hundreds of people have entered an auction at a former wildlife center in Indiana, where the former owner and his ex-wife were found to have violated the Endangered Species Act by capturing and injured animals, including tigers and lions.

In June, a federal judge ordered Timothy Stark and his ex-wife, Melissa Lane, to pay more than $700,000 to People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals for attorneys fees from the successful lawsuit by the anti-government group this couple.

Last year, Stark gained attention as one of the characters in the Netflix true-crime series “Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness”.

Along with volunteers, he has run the Wildlife in Need center in southern Indiana for more than 20 years.
