On Friday, November 24, police responded to multiple reports of a 440-pound Tiger wandering through the streets of Paris. It turns out the creature had escaped from a nearby circus, the Bormann-Moreno, which was planning to open its doors on December 3.

Harsh words from Paris police: "A tiger which had escaped from a circus— Jon Gripton (@jongripton) November 24, 2017
in Paris was "neutralised" by circus personnel and is now dead, police said."
We suspect a malicious act. There was a chain with a padlock, and the chain was cut.
It’s a miracle that there weren’t any human victims this time.
Why kill it for goodness sake, don’t they have tranquillisers?— Wendy redRobin (@Wendy_redRobin) November 24, 2017
Poor creature ❤️🐅
