Sandy the Siberian Tiger
Sandy, the rare and endangered, Siberian white tiger, gladly bolted at the opportunity of escape when the train car transporting him to the zoo derailed.
While on the loose, the tiger stealthily approached the town, scratching fence posts, befouling sandboxes and garden plots and terrorizing small family pets.
This emergency prompted the local authorities to post public warnings
"Better watch out, Sandy Claws is coming to town!"
