UNIONTOWN, Pa. — State police and community members are on the lookout for a big cat near Uniontown.

Initial reports from Fayette County 911 said there was a tiger on the loose near Route 119, but authorities aren’t releasing details, only describing the animal as a big, golden-colored cat.

Dr. Shepard’s Wildlife Sanctuary was first assumed to have lost the tiger, but officials with the business said it does not belong to them.

However, an expert from the sanctuary did say the cat could be a cougar.

State troopers have been instructed to dart the tiger if it is found.

Officials continue to look for the cat and ask for any information regarding anyone who may have an unaccounted for tiger. Anyone with information is asked to contact police.
