Authorities in western Mexico say they seized two tigers and several deer at a ranch where police also found what appears to be a drug lab.

Jalisco state police say officers found precursor chemicals in barrels and buckets and boilers that were probably used to manufacture methamphetamine.

Authorities said Friday that police found the ranch a day earlier in the town of Yahualica, after people reported that suspicious men were guarding the ranch and that there was a strong smell of chemicals.

Police say the men guarding the ranch escaped.

Jalisco has long been considered the hub of the Sinaloa cartel's meth production and trafficking.
