Tiger On the Loose: Story A Hoax?

Tiger On the Loose: Story A Hoax?

Last Update: 12/10 11:15 pm

(WILMER, Ala.) Dec. 10 – The Mobile County Sheriff’s Office responded to calls that a tiger escaped fro the Mobile County Zoo in Wilmer, but the zoo owner says it never happened.

The MSCO says reports were called in that the tiger escaped, and the zoo’s keeper was chasing it. The zoo’s executive director, John Hightower, says the whole story was fake.

“I’ve had neighbors come by, and three sheriff’s deputies thought about having some cookies, coffee, maybe have a party, a tiger party,” Hightower said.

Hightower says the tiger enclosure has double pens so even if the tigers escaped one it would be virtually impossible to escape both, and it’s not the first time his neighbors have made a false report.
