Escaped Tiger Shot By Police Was a Ringling Bros. Circus Star
An escaped Bengal tiger who was shot by police after roaming around metropolitan Atlanta was a star in the now-closed Ringling Brothers Circus, CNN reported. Suzy, the six-year old tiger, was killed after she attacked a dog. Feld Entertainment had been contracted to move the tiger, who was supposed to be part of another circus in Germany. The truck carrying her made an overnight stop in Georgia but didn’t realize Suzy was missing until it arrived in Tennessee.
