...because they were never missing in the first place! A Florida wildlife sanctuary crafted an elaborate hoax, claiming they lost animals to a Craigslist ad that claimed they were giving their animals away. Josue Santiago is now being charged for filing a false police report over the hoax.
Just what would one hope to gain out of this? Attention, visitors? Probably insurance money? While we're happy to hear that none of the animals were truly missing and they're all safe and sound, there are real animals at risk while time is wasted by jokers like this one.
