Escaped Tiger in South Africa Has Been Found
What do you do when your pet runs away? If you're Rose Fernandes, and your pet is a tiger, you go on a local radio show and tell people to treat it like a dog. At least, that's what she did when her 310-pound, 17-month-old tiger, Panjo, escaped his enclosure on the way to the vet in South Africa, reports Reuters Africa. Police employed helicopters and microlight aircraft to search for the big cat, which was finally found at a farm, scared and stressed but happy to hear his owner's voice, reports BBC News. While the tiger was on the lam, Fernandes suggested that anybody catching sight of Panjo hold a big stick and loudly say, "No." Also, feeding him meat, particularly chicken, will have him purring like a pussycat in no time. Good to know in case he makes another Houdini-like escape!
