Amsterdam: Two tigers on Saturday escaped from a wildlife sanctuary in Netherlands, heading towards an insecure outer fence.

“The sanctuary’s outer fence is not completely secure,” said the police spokesperson Nathalie Schubart and added, “the tigers namely Rajdah and Dehli may have escaped through the fence.”

Later, the police, on its Twitter handle, posted that one of the tigers was hit with a tranquiliser but it did not have the desired effect and that they were still trying to tranquilise the big cats.

Highlights:

  • The sanctuary is located in Oldeberkoop, 87 miles north-east of Amsterdam.
  • Officials warned residents of the surrounding village to stay inside until the tigers were brought back to their shelter.
  • There were no injury reports.
  • The sanctuary’s inhabitants include two lions, eight tigers, a lion and a black jaguar.
  • The two tigers were shifted from a north Germany zoo, whose owner could no longer feed them.
