Espaced Tiger In Edenvale Has Been Recaptured
Reports state that the escaped tiger in Edenvale has been recaptured.
About a week ago, an eight year old tiger named Sheba escaped from where it was being kept in the south of Johannesburg and attacked a resident. The tiger was spotted in Edenvale, East of Johannesburg, on Monday morning.
After CCTV footage of the tiger was released, authorities warned residents to be on the lookout and keep their animals inside. According to Gary Wilson from S.W.A.T SOS 24/7, the tiger jumped from house to house in the Edenvale area and was later sighted in a field.
He stated that the tiger had been recaptured. Wilson said it had been located and sedated and would be taken to a more secure sanctuary. It is still unknown who owns the tiger or where it lived. In a statement, Keshvi Nair, a spokesperson of the National Council of the SPCAs, said the Gauteng Department of Agriculture was informed about the tiger.
