Tiger and Two Camels Stolen

A reward of $20,000 has been offered in exchange for information about the whereabouts of a bengal tiger and two camels that were stolen from a parking lot in Quebec. The animals were in a gray trailer attached to a Ford truck, when someone drove off in the truck.

The truck was discovered Saturday, but so far neither the trailer, nor the animals have been found. No one knows if the animals have been given water since they were last seen, and they could be suffering from dehydration (moreso the tiger than the camels). The trailer’s license plate is E4398Y.

You can contact the Bowmanzille Zoo through their website, if you have any information. Also, the zoo is offering $2,000 for photos of the animals alive. If the tiger does not receive water, it may die soon.

Wikipedia states there are about 2,100 bengal tigers in the wild worldwide.

Hope those creatures are treated well.It could be great if they could go to live in a big, big sanctuary, if not in the wild. Thank you.

some people will steal anything not nailed down. But this is the first time I've ever heard of someone stealing tigers and camels! Please never cease surprising me!

I'm thrilled they were found -- now, it would be great if they could go and live in their natural habitat or at the vest least, a sanctuary -- a very very large sanctuary.
