    Tiger spotted in Knoxville, TN

    https://www.foxnews.com/us/knoxville...arch-continues

    The hunt for a tiger in Tennessee continues after the tiger was spotted again in Knoxville as of Friday morning, according to reports.

    The Knox County Sheriff?s office initially reported a sighting out in the Forks of the River Industrial Park on Wednesday night around 7:30 p.m., leading to a citywide hunt on Thursday. Residents corroborated the report, with one woman reporting to the sheriff?s office that a friend working in the industrial park had seen a tiger hanging around the Green Mountain Coffee Roasters plant, 5 News reported.

    A second sighting later placed the tiger near Thorngrove Pike, according to WBIR News. The woman who reported the sighting claimed to have seen the tiger in her backyard.

    KCSO immediately issued a be-on-the-lookout (BOLO) notice after the first sighting. According to the transcript of the initial call, the deputy who spotted the tiger reported that it might be a cub.

    "You heard right. It's a tiger cub. It might be a TWRA call," the deputy said. "I don't know how to judge the age of the tiger cub, but it's probably around the 4-to-6-month range."

    Tiger Haven, a big cat sanctuary in Kingston, Tenn., was involved in the search for the missing big cat, but it remained unclear whether or not that's where the tiger initially escaped from.

    KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WZTV) ? Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency officials say a tiger sighting in Knoxville was likely a case of mistaken identity.

    A spokesperson from the East Tennessee region said they received a call a couple days ago in the Kingsport area saying folks saw a tiger.

    An officer responded and the cat, which was still on site, was a bobcat.

    "Taking everything into consideration, the lack of new sightings and the conditions the first sighting was reported in, It seems highly unlikely that there is a big non-native cat on the loose," Barry Cross, with TWRA, said.
