Runaway Tiger Nabbed Near Animal Sanctuary

By Compiled From Wire Services

It took three tranquilizer darts, but Zarak the runaway Siberian tiger had to end his romp around southern Ontario sooner or later.

The 770-pound animal was recaptured Tuesday outside the Bear Creek Exotics sanctuary near Barrie, where he had escaped Sunday.

Animal tracker Norm Phillips said Zarak was hard to catch because of the thick, swampy forest.

“He’s not hurt at all … he’s just a big baby,” Phillips said as the drugged tiger was pulled from the snowy woods on a toboggan.
