An 800-pound Siberian tiger escaped Sunday from an exotic animal farm on the western outskirts of this city, and police warned residents to stay indoors.
Zarak, a 4-year-old male, was described as being docile. He has been in captivity all his life.
Zarak escaped by scaling a fence about noon Sunday.
Police officers aided by a helicopter called off a search at the end of the day, but sharpshooters were to remain at the farm overnight.
