Tiger on loose spotted near Disneyland Paris
PARIS, France - French authorities say a young tiger is on the loose near Disneyland Paris.
The town of Montevrain sent a news alert on its Facebook page Thursday saying the young tiger was spotted in the brush behind some tennis courts and a soccer field. The field is about 5 1/2 miles from the popular tourist theme park.
Town authorities said in a statement that police and rescue squads are on the scene and had roped off a security perimeter. They urged everyone nearby to avoid the area and to get around only by vehicle - not on foot.
EuroDisney, the operator of Disneyland Paris, said it has no tigers in the theme park, so the errant cat could not have come from them.
