How often are such discoveries made, but never reported? Without the incident in San Francisco, would this one have ever been published?
Sanitation crews in Dallas [Texas] made a shocking discovery after they received a call about a dead animal on Christmas Eve.
An adult tiger was found dead when the crews searched a wooded area near Interstate 35E and Overton Road. A city spokesperson said the tiger has been shot several times.
The animal, which was declawed and wearing a collar, was taken to the Dallas Zoo.
