Escaped circus tiger sends Sicilian town into panic


An escaped circus tiger prowled the streets of a Sicilian town for hours frightening residents on Saturday morning.
Panic ensued after the massive white Bengal tiger, named Oscar, ran into the hill town of Monreale, outside of Palermo.


I’d be nervous too!

On a personal note I have an overly energetic nephew named Oscar that has me nervous. He is coming to visit over Spring Break in a few weeks. He’s often called Oscar the bear, and for good reasons.


I hope Oscar behaves and doesn’t act any more vicious than a teddy bear.
