Tiger spotted on Louisiana Army base
FORT POLK, Louisiana -- A Bengal tiger on the loose in the thick brush surrounding an Army base is winning a game of hide and seek. About 40 soldiers and sheriff's deputies searched the woods in Fort Polk for a second day Wednesday. It was unclear where the animal came from, but it's likely that it was a pet that escaped or was set free, said Leslie Whitt, director of the Alexandria Zoo, who assisted in the search. Several witnesses said the animal was wearing a collar.
