Tiger escaped, killed

Postby Nìmwey » Wed Sep 06, 2017 11:28 am

Did you see? A tiger was loose in Atlanta, attacked someone's dog, and was shot dead.
No one knows where it came from yet.

I don't know about you, but anything like this seems extremely suspicious just when there's so much talk about the big cat public safety act. I don't want to act all conspiratorial, but how easy would it be for certain people to set a tiger loose to put proceedings in their favor...
My main interest is in parrots, dogs, toothed whales and snakes.
Future animals I want to have when we have land are camels, wolfdogs/wolves, coyotes or jackals, striped hyena or aardwolf. Also poultry, rabbits water buffalo and/or yak for livestock.

Well, I know when they were pushing the ban here by saying they wanted to add alligators and crocs, they found a big dead gator randomly and a "rescue" had a smaller one escape when there had been no problems before. It's not an uncommon pattern. Don't know if they could do it with a tiger but they sure would given the chance.

An article I read said the neighbors [of the lady whose dog was attacked] who called it in may have known where it came from. But that's all it said, no more info.

Escaped unnoticed, hmm, released by AR maybe. Otherwise how unnoticed, tigers don't lock doors behind them but AR nuts do.

UPDATE [4:51 p.m.]: The Department of Natural Resources has identified the tiger’s owner as Feld Entertainment, Inc. The company reported the tiger missing from a shipment traveling from Florida to Tennessee.

“The truck had stopped in Georgia during the overnight hours, and during that stop the female Bengal tiger managed to escape unnoticed,” spokesman Mark McKinnon said in a news release. “Feld discovered that she was missing when the truck arrived at the destination.”

Definitely sounds suspicious. How does a full grown tiger manage to escape unnoticed?

And with the Big Cat Public Safety Act ongoing, it definitely feels like a ruse to cause panic.

At the very least, it wasn't a pet tiger.

Exactly. Like you left the door open walked away and came back and closed it? Don't think so, unless an AR plant. Only way you drive off is if all doors are closed and someone had to have opened and then closed it for the tiger. You have to stop and feed and water along the way but just can't imagine how this would happen without malice.

Looks more and more like AR foul play to me

[quote]Tiger was one of the Ringingly cats, which were being transported to Memphis TN to main FedEx terminal for export back home to Europe. These were the same cats the AR was trying to get the USFW permit for export home denied.

It was not an AR release. A non keeper made a mistake, and the animal paid with it's life.
Unfortunately, Alex was the last to find out what happened, and was (still is) heartbroken over it.
