EUGENE, Ore. — An Oregon pet store owner’s husband was arrested after cops say he paid a prostitute with an exotic animal.
According to Eugene Police, the Zany Zoo Pet store reported two burglaries in early March. The stolen property included a laptop, Girl Scout cookie money and a Galago, a small primate commonly referred to as a bush baby.
Nearly 10 days after the second burglary occurred, police recovered the exotic animal from an out-of-town prostitute who says Nathan Allen McClain, the pet store owner’s husband, gave it to her as a tip for her “services.”
The missing Girl Scout money was never recovered and is still under investigation.
The pint-sized primate, Gooey, is safe and is living at a nearby sanctuary until the USDA issues a new license for Zany Zoo Pets.
