Tiger walks away from zoo, sits in middle of road. Cows do it, even the odd deer or moose, but it's a rare sight to see a tiger lying in the middle of an Ontario road. But that's what a driver near the town of Wendover, east of Ottawa, reported to police. Turns out the large cat had ambled away from its enclosure at nearby Papanack Zoo. Zoo workers were summoned and quickly tranquilized the animal in a back yard across the road, and took it back to captivity. The zoo is trying to figure out how the tiger was able to leave its enclosure. The family-owned and operated Papanack Zoo has been breeding exotic animals and birds since the early 1980s.
