Mexican authorities searching an abandoned house were left stunned when they discovered a Bengal tiger locked in a cage.
Police officers, who found the endangered animal after a tip-off from a member of the public, say it is a “complete mystery” how the tiger got there.
They were searching a property in the municipality of Chilapa de Alvarez, in the state of Guerrero, when they heard a strange noise.
She didn’t have any food or water to hand, but we don’t think she could have been there for long,” he told AFP Indonesia.
“The cage was much too small for an animal of this size, it’s a complete mystery what the tiger was doing there.” ……………………………..
