Missing Tiger Found in Van Zandt County

Updated 3:30 PM CST, Thu, Jan 21, 2010

A tiger reported missing in Van Zandt County has been found and secured.

The 400-pound female tiger was reported to be on the run after escaping its enclosure during Wednesday’s storm. A Van Zandt Sheriff’s Department deputy said he thought he spotted the tiger Wednesday night.

The tiger was found Thursday afternoon and secured. It is now in the possession of Texas Game Wardens. There have been no reported injuries in connection with the tiger’s escape.

The ownership of exotic wild animals (such as tigers, lions and jaguars) in Texas is allowed by law with a license. The animal also must be registered with the state, according to BornFreeUSA.org.
