28 July 2010 – Groblersdal
A 17-month-old Bengal tiger has caught the attention of the whole country after somehow escaping from his owners’ Ford F250 bakkie on Monday night, and is now roaming about somewhere between Groblersdal and Delmas.
His owners’ Goosey, 51, and Rosa Fernandes, 45, hope he will arrive at their smallholding at Endicott near Springs on Wednesday. The Fernandes’ don’t have a permit for the tiger.
According to Rosa, anyone who spots him should point a stick at him and say “no!” or give him some chicken to eat.
If the permit-less tiger is spotted, people are asked to phone the local police station immediately, says Sersant Wilson at 082 8*0 43*3
No wonder they can’t find it!! Everyone knows a tiger is STRIPED, fgdsake! Not ‘spotted’.
I can just see Sersant Wilson’s konstabels tip-toeing thru the bush, seeing Panjo and saying voetsek as they continue their search for a spotted creature!
