You better watch out, you better not cry– the Parisian police has issued a warning to visitors of Disneyland Paris because a tiger is on the loose and reportedly roaming in the family theme park!
According to Reuters, local residents spotted the big cat near the town of Montevrain, east of Paris, prompting authorities to despatch a helicopter and some 60 police and firemen armed with stun guns to set up a security perimeter.
“We’ve asked parents to come and fetch their children from school in cars so that no child goes home alone or without supervision,” said Cedric Tartaud-Gineste.
A spokesman for the town hall said: “The feline experts who analysed the paw prints said it was a large feline, probably a tiger, weighing 80 kg.”.
The animal was most likely kept as a private pet, the spokesman said. A nearby circus did not keep any tigers and a zoo located 30 km away was too far for it not to have been noticed by local people earlier.
The last sighting was reported by a man at 1500 GMT near a public park, prompting police to widen their search area.MYNEWSHUB
