Gator, I do not fancy the thought of hungry tigers prowling around in my area, some times I find life bad enough when the pussy cat I own becomes hungry, This problem you and all your fellow residents are now landed with is 100% the fault ofthe circus owners and mans exploitation of beautiful wild creatures which belong living happily in the wilderness , Such outdated forms of entertainment belong to the dark ages.

no tigers here in Montana, but they locked down the elementry school a couple of years ago because a mountain lion was seen prowling the creeki that runs nearby.

Sorry, all I forgot the new 2.0 version does not show hometowns...Sarasota Florida....Siting was at Myakka city... 15 miles east out in the country...All circus and rescue animals accounted for...Could well be a hoax...I hope so....Country folk out that way got life hard enough

Let them free , something needs to take care of the varmints down there , shoot in NJ the great minds in Trenton turned out rattlesnakes and black bears . I've seen them in the woods , duck hunting one day a wolf came right up close to me with his snout covered in blood. After that encounter I started carrying a couple buckshot rounds . If he'd attacked he'd be dead my ten gauge had 3 1/2 number 2 steel at ten feet his brain would be gone. When I hunted I had tons of game all around I get real still and don't move till I'm on target. I've killed woodducks teal pintail mallards and geese at 85 yards a couple a bit further. Steel shot does reach but you got to put it there. Had some friends to my blind and they said what the hell are you using a howitzer. Nope just know how to hit what I aim at.
It would be very bad to have to kill those cats. I'd say catch them and ship them to where they are left in the world. But don't kill the tigers . To many other game animals are not being thinned down anymore.
I hunted every year of my life till I couldn't do it physically. Would I go again if able in a heart beat or blink of an eye.
