Tiger escapes from circus
By:

TERROR reigned near a circus in Andújar (Jaén province) yesterday (Sunday) lunchtime after a tiger gave his handlers the slip and broke loose.

Emergency services were called out at around 12.45hrs by circus staff who warned that one of their tigers had fled and they did not know where he was.

Local Police and National Police rushed to the scene near the C/ Lisboa, but in the end the circus workers were able to catch the tiger themselves as he had not strayed far from his base.

He did not cause any damage or injuries, and no harm came to the tiger during his 'adventure' nor in capturing him.
