MARY REICHARD, HOST: Well, here’s something you wouldn’t expect.
A sheriff in Knox County, Tennessee sent out a lookout notice for …a tiger!
Listen to this 911 call.
AUDIO: I’m out with a tiger cub. Do what?! You heard correctly. It’s a tiger cub.
Animal experts said it was probably a bobcat mistaken for a tiger. But then, more reports of a tiger came in.
AUDIO: It’s like right across the road from our house. I think I spotted a tiger in my backyard.
The sheriff’s department, animal control, the state wildlife agency are all looking for the cat. So far, it hasn’t turned up.
Experts say if you’re ever face to face with a tiger, back away slowly, but don’t run.
Cats like a good chase.
It’s The World and Everything in It.
