Your rating: None Average: 5 (1 vote)

Wildlife authorities in the northern Malaysian state of Kedah are searching for a man who is reported to have gone missing with his family and his pet tiger.

. . .

The missing businessman was photographed on Saturday driving around his home town with a full-grown tiger in the back of his jeep.

The man, Haji Zaitun Arshad, told reporters that the animal had been brought in from Thailand where it had been caught in a trap.

. . .

However, a neighbour later said that Haji Zaitun had disappeared with his family and the tiger, after learning that the authorities wanted to speak to him.

If convicted of keeping a tiger without a licence, he faces a $4,000 fine, or up to five years in prison.

The full story can be found at the BBC.
