PREDATOR ALERT! AUTHORITIES ON THE HUNT FOR TIGER ON THE LOOSE IN TENNESSEE
So I’m not sure that there are many predators as dangerous as the Tiger. Big cats are all very powerful and dangerous. But the tiger is BIG, and is an ambush predator. So much so, that people who have to work in tigers’ natural habitat wear face masks on backwards. Why? Because a tiger is that much less likely to attack you if you can see it. They like to strike from behind and kill you fast. So why are we talking about this? Well, a deputy saw one on the loose in Tennessee. Yes, there is a predator alert for a tiger in Tennessee!
IF YOU LIVE IN THE AREA, STAY ALERT, AS A TIGER CAN KILL YOU IN A NEW YORK MINUTE
The Knox County Sheriff’s Office confirmed the sighting of the tiger on Wednesday at a local industrial park. I don’t know about you, but if I lived anywhere near there, I’d be afraid to step outside. And kids? Forget about it. No, you can’t go play on the swing in the backyard. No sirree. Not till that loose tiger is safely anywhere else. And as you might guess, everyone is out looking for this Mowgli nemesis. As predator alerts go, a tiger is serious business. So animal control, the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency and representatives with the rescue organization Tiger Haven are trying to find the wayward beast.
AUTHORITIES HOPE TO SAFELY CAPTURE BEAST, RELOCATE IT TO A SAFE TIGER HAVEN
So where did this tiger come from? No one knows. The only place you’d think it could have escaped from is the Knoxville Zoo. But they have all their tigers to hand. So the search is on. But while there have been a number of unconfirmed sightings, the tiger is still out there, somewhere, more alert than you. Once the tiger is presumably caught, it will go to the aforementioned Tiger Haven. Let’s just hope they catch the tiger unharmed all around. And if you live down there, this is one pussy even the President should be afraid to grab.
