Federal agents have reportedly seized four tigers from a Gary tattoo parlor after finding signs the animals were poorly cared for.

The tigers -- Storm, Pearl, Kya and Kelly -- belong to parlor owner Rob "Boy" Cooper, according to the Post-Tribune of Northwest Indiana.

The paper says USDA officials removed the tigers because they found them underweight and lacking veterinary care. The animals were being taken to a government-licensed sanctuary.
