Bengal Tiger on the Loose?

Bengal Tiger on the Loose?

Monday, Mar 29, 2010 @09:24am

Police and animal control officers were searching Thursday for a big cat believed to be prowling Cincinnati’s Avondale neighborhood.

Witnesses described the animal as a lion or tiger.

Authorities said they received one report Wednesday and three more on Thursday and more than eight other witnesses described the same animal.

Animal control officials said despite usually high prices for exotic animals, lion cubs are selling on the black market at an alarming rate and some for less than $1,000.

They said they believe this big cat that was spotted may be someone’s pet that will make its way back home, but may not be real happy when it gets there.
