Loose Bengal tiger sought in Cullman

Cullman County Sheriff’s deputies and animal control officers have stepped up patrols in the Berlin community since late last week looking for what residents describe as a Bengal tiger roaming the area.

Sheriff’s deputies were first called to a neighborhood off Cullman County Road 1641 in the eastern part of the county Thursday night on a report of a tiger in a back yard of a home, said sheriff’s Lt. Phillip Patterson.

Four adults in three homes on that road reported seeing the animal before it disappeared into a wooded area before deputies arrived, Patterson said. Later, another person was interviewed who had seen the animal earlier in daylight in a field near some cows but had not reported it to law enforcement, he said.

No sightings have been reported since that time.

The animal’s description matches that of a young adult Bengal tiger about waist high and weighing about 200 to 250 pounds with about a 3-inch red collar, Patterson said. There have been no reports of anyone having lost a tiger, he said.

I thought tigers were native to Asia Minor and not Africa?

Am I wrong?

That will go great with the Cobra that got loose a couple of years ago. Never captured or found.

It's a Monty Python skit from "The Meaning of Life". A "tiger" attacks an officer in his sleep during one of the Zulu wars and they go hunt the "tiger". There aren't any tigers on the African continent unless they are in zoos. Hence the confusion.

It's a joke. Alabama and Africa start with "A".

Tiger is a cat. So Chinese of course!

You could make a pimp cape out of it.

Is there a kid walking around with a red jacket, blue jeans, green umbrella, and shoes with crimson soles and crimson linings?
