    Tiger hunt underway in France

    A tiger hunt is underway in Montervrain, Seine-et-Marne, France, after multiple sightings (and photographs) of the animal. Residents are being warned to stay inside while the animal is still on the loose.

    It's thought - but not known - that the tiger must have escaped from a circus. Hope people remember to get their animals safely inside, and hope the tiger doesn't have to be killed.

    Ooh, dear. I was thinking it could just be a large ginger cat, but the photo at the link here sure looks like a tiger's face on it. It's only 3km from EuroDisney, but they've said it's absolutely nothing to do with them.

    Well, how would a tiger be on the looose and no one know? Did it escape a zoo? Do people own them as pets there? I think here people own as pets even if they are not supposed to . So if one came up missing,t hey may not report to LE they lost their tiger, see? Scary!

    People are definitely not allowed to own tigers privately in France. Authorities reported they had it cornered, but now it's gone again. It's still near the supermarket where it was spotted before (probably smelt the fresh meat).

    Experts who examined the paw prints say it's a teenager. Weighing 15 to 23 stone which is a lot of lbs. (14 lbs in 1 stone).

    It must have escaped from a circus or zoo, but why the heck wouldn't it have been noticed and reported? If it hurts someone, the owner/keeper could find themselves in a lot of trouble.

    Could it be just coincidence there was a circus with animals in the same town, up until last Sunday?

    Local mayor says tiger is "totally not dangerous".

    http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-n...police-4620644

    Really? Maybe he should go capture it.

    I hope they find and capture it safely.
    All statements are my opinion only.

    And at that same link, the Mayor Christian Robache also said:

    "[People] shouldn't go outside, especially not from schools. They also definitely shouldn't go for walks in parks which are close to the cordoned off area.

    "We found it in one of the bushes behind me, thanks to the forces which have been mobilised since 9am, including the police and government workers. There are roughly 60 people who helped cordoning off the area."

    He should maybe leave the talking to a large cat expert, Lol, because he's not really making sense. If it's to stop people panicking, I don't think it's necessary. I've seen lots of daft tweets from France telling the tiger to run free, etc. ??!!

    One of the updates on that page now says that all the animals from the visiting circus have been accounted for. I don't whether to laugh or cry at this quote from earlier today: "The police had located the tiger but now it's been reported they have lost it again."

    It's gonna need to eat something soon. Hope they've had the sense to lay bait.

    Well, i hope the people stay safe AND the tiger (in my opinion the most beautiful, magnificent animals on earth) is caught unharmed.

    Article states a big cat wildlife park is 30 km away,I think that is around 18 miles.I read earlier that the big cat park said all their cats have been accounted for.
