Two tigers that had escaped their enclosures at a Georgia zoo after a tornado struck on Sunday morning have been found.

The Pine Mountain Wild Animal Safari confirmed that the two animals, that were briefly on the loose, had been located, tranquilized, and returned safely to their enclosure.

Earlier on Sunday, the Troup County Sheriff’s Office announced that at least one tiger was ‘unaccounted for’ following the tornado, which touched down at around 7am and damaged the tigers’ cages.


The zoo wrote:

“Like much of Southwest Georgia, Pine Mountain Safari sustained extensive tornado damage this morning. Fortunately, none of our animals and employees were hurt.

“However, several animal enclosures were breeched, and two tigers briefly escaped. Both have now been found, tranquilized, and safely returned to a secure enclosure.

“We appreciate your concern and support during this difficult time.”

It was initially reported that one tiger had escaped, but then an announcement came saying a second tiger was also on the loose.
