Escaped tiger captured in bizarre video

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

Strange footage of three men running after an escaped tiger and throwing a lasso to capture it has left social media users speechless. Filmed in Mexico, the video shows three men chasing a tiger which apparently escaped its enclosure and decided to explore the great outdoors. One of the men, wearing a white cowboy hat, is seen holding a lasso - a loop of rope that cowboys use to catch cattle. Behind the men, a white van is seen driving down the road.

The video has been re-posted by several accounts, raking up thousands of views on the microblogging platform. The bizarre footage has also collected a number of amazed comments, with many pointing out that it looked like animal abuse to capture the tiger like that.

I guess it was a Zoo animal.  I don't know if these guys are brave or just ate-up stupid...

According to the Guardian link in my OP, it looks like it was a pet.

Others speculated on who might own a tiger since Mexican circuses are no longer to use animals in their shows. Some drug cartel bosses are believed to keep to keep wild animals as pets.

Details on the tiger and the men pursuing it remain scant. None of the three men has been identified and none has spoken to the press. The tiger escaped on Tuesday from a private residence in the Guadalajara suburb of Tlaquepaque, according to the local government, which had sent out its fire department in response to calls.
