Pierce County animal control and law enforcement officers spent more than two hours searching for a Bengal tiger that three people reported seeing just outside of Puyallup on River Road.
A spokesman for the sheriff’s office said a mother and son who live in the same house said they saw a tiger walk by their home. The driver of a car on River Road also reported seeing a tiger.

Here is the video from the newscast. Take a look.
So, I can’t quite tell if these are independent reports although they seem so. Sightseers are all over. Witness do not seem to report a “tiger” just a large cat which is odd because tigers are VERY large and distinctive. Two witnesses that apparently did not communicate saw SOMETHING. We will keep you up to date on this story. Details are lacking as of now.
