Waiting for people to make the right decision would take forever, this tiger decided for himself.

It's always good when animals take matters into their own to speak.

Good for him, but I hope they won't shoot him.

Cats are born with teeth and claws, and are masters at this sort of escape. Here's to humans respecting him enough to stick to tranq darts instead of large bore lead rounds should he become problematic.

Free at last? Finally free? That tiger walked into the sanctuary. Got free room and board till it realized that it was time to go. Then it left. It was never captive. These humans just thought it was caged.

Zoo officials should be ashamed. In their attempt to use the tiger for breeding instead of release, they have most probably condemned the poor tiger to death by the villagers. Denying the animals release has put it in imminent danger of being killed. If they had just released it to a safe area this would not have occurred. Wild animals should not be kept captive to serve human purposes, they should be allowed freedom at all costs, and this tiger has emphasized this point. Now we have to wait and see if it is killed by frightened people. Shame on those people. I pray he makes it back to the safety of the wilderness.

Yes, wild animals have to live in nature and free but I'm really worry for this tiger, how many idiots around? How many poachers? This baby needs a lot of luck!!!
