WFAA, ABC News' affiliate in Dallas, is agog this AM with news of two tigers seen roaming downtown Dallas.
Apparently a group of people ran into Union Station screaming there were tigers outside. A security guard looked outside and then called the police, confirming the sighting.
So far the Dallas Zoo has not responded to requests for a big cat headcount.
You may recall, the Dallas Zoo has had four escaped apes in the last eleven years.
I'd earlier heard that a film crew is due to start a shoot in downtown Dallas at 9 this morning.
Film crew versus tigers???
Update: The 7:30 AM news says it was two people who ran into Union Station and two security guards who confirmed the tiger sighting. The tigers are described as small--about fifty pounds each. That sounds more like someone's exotic pets than missing zoo tigers. I had wondered because the tigers would have had to cross a lot of concrete to get to Union Station from the Zoo while there are more woody areas in the other direction.
