Tigress breaks free from Indore zoo enclosure, captured

Press Trust of India  |  Indore 

A tigress in the zoo here today broke its enclosure and came out, creating panic among visitors, but was before it could harm anyone.

The big cat was caught after nearly 90 minutes of escaping from the enclosure and put back in its cage, said the in-charge of the zoo run by Indore Municipal Corporation.



The feline turned furious and broke the fencing of its cage after somebody hurled a balloon at it, and slinked out at around 6 pm, said zoo in-charge Uttam Yadav said.

On seeing the wild animal out of its cage, around 200 -odd panic-stricken visitors, including women and children, who were near the enclosure, ran for safety, he said, adding the big cat didn't harm anyone.

Later, police personnel in jeeps evacuated them from the zoo.

Yadav said the entire incident will be probed.
