Siberian Tiger roaming free in Russian City gets sedated and delivered to Rehabilitation centre at Alekseevka Village

A female tiger was plaguing the village of Solontsovy, about 200 km from Vladivostok

Moscow, October 21, 2016: A Siberian tiger, roaming freely in a Russian city, was tranquilised on Friday after a driver on a busy road spotted the big cat and alerted the police.

The tiger was found at night, close to Shamora suburb, and has been removed and delivered to a rehabilitation centre at Alekseevka village, with hopes it would be released in the wild next spring, the Siberian Times reported.

A huge search had been underway in Vladivostok city for the tiger, involving police and hunting supervisors with machine guns. Parents were frightened to allow their children to go out, or attend school.

Fearful residents were told by an expert the hunt for the wild cat was like “a needle in a haystack”, and it was likely that there were two or more tigers on the rampage.

The Siberian tiger is one of the rarest big cats, but rising species numbers in recent years, due to better wildlife protection spearheaded by Russian President Vladimir Putin, was seeing them roam more widely, the Daily Mail reported on Thursday.

Meanwhile, a female tiger was plaguing the village of Solontsovy, about 200 km from Vladivostok, said residents.

“It is impossible to go out at night because you can’t be sure she is not waiting somewhere in the bushes,” said a resident.

“We are afraid of taking children to school in the morning,” the resident added.
