Police shoot and kill tiger that wandered on interstate
    2017-September-11  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

GEORGIA police shot and killed a Bengal tiger Wednesday after it escaped from a truck and wandered along a major interstate near Atlanta, frightening residents of a nearby subdivision.

Feld Entertainment spokesman Stephen Payne said Suzy, a 6-year-old Bengal tiger that had once performed in the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, somehow got loose when the truck hauling 14 big cats stopped south of Atlanta on its way from Florida to Tennessee.

“We stopped in Georgia to feed and water the cats and for a quick rest break for the driver, and that’s where we believe the animal escaped and was later confronted by law enforcement,” Payne said.

“They’ve been raised around people their entire lives, so they’re comfortable around people,” Payne said.

Motorists spotted the tiger early Wednesday along Interstate 75 in Stockbridge, southeast of Atlanta, Henry County police said. The interstate was jammed with traffic as people were fleeing Hurricane Irma, which could hit Florida or the Gulf Coast.

The cat ended up in a subdivision, where it began chasing a dog, police said.

The tiger jumped on the dog, its owner Brittney Speck told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The dog survived the attack and is OK, she said.

The cat was shot after it “became aggressive toward pets in the area,” the Georgia Department of Natural Resources said in a statement late Wednesday.
