Multiple deadly attacks
In mid-January, a tiger escaped from its enclosure in the Johannesburg suburb of Walkerville. The female big cat, which attacked a man and attacked and killed several animals, was caught and euthanized after a four-day search.
Tigers do not live in the wild in Africa, but are occasionally kept on private game farms. The owners of the tiger spotted in Edenvale were initially unknown on Monday morning. (SDA)
