Tigers take a Romanian holiday

Tigers take a Romanian holiday

Updated: 05:23, Sunday September 27, 2009

A full investigation has been launched after two tigers managed to escape from a zoo enclosure in Romania.

Tigers Dorinel and Silvia literally leapt at the opportunity to escape from their cage and explore the grounds they’d only ever seen from behind bars.

Both zoo keepers and visitors weren’t as excited.

Their disappearance sparked a full-scale emergency, with all visitors evacuated and firemen police, and even a local hunting squad called in to search for and recapture the wiley felines.

It wasn’t until nightfall when a pair of bright green eyes was spotted in bushes nearby and zoo keepers were able to manhandle the tranquilised tigers back to their enclosure.

No one was injured during the big cats’ big day out and authorities are thankful the tigers strayed no further than the three hectare zoo park.
