ALBION, Ind. – A tiger that escaped from an animal sanctuary in northeast Indiana returned to its home several hours later.

Noble County 911 Director Mitch Fiandt said the 18-year-old female Bengal tiger escaped from the Black Pine Animal Park in Albion about 3:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Park officials say the tiger returned to the property around 11 p.m. and was back in its enclosure about an hour later.

An Albion firefighter alerted authorities after spotting the tiger on his property.

Authorities shot the tiger with a tranquilizer, but were not immediately able to capture it.

Black Pine personnel felt the tiger would come back to the park due in part to the inclement weather.
