Stack was released on bail on January 8 after spending nearly three weeks, including Christmas, in jail.

The third-year tiger has been charged by police after violating its mandatory quarantine period in Northbridge, after entering Western Australia from Victoria on a flight through South Australia.

The Western Australian border was closed but Stack approved entry on December 10 on compassionate grounds for his grandfather’s funeral.

He was ordered to self-isolate for 14 days at a specific address in Northam, but police caught him at 1:10 a.m. on December 19 partying in Northbridge.

It was also alleged that Stack was living in a residence in Belmont instead of the quarantine address he had designated.
