The inhabitants of the community of Agua Nueva, in the municipality of Ahome, Sinaloa, reported to the emergency lines the appearance of a Bengal tiger that roams the area, so it is presumed that the young feline belongs to a family of that sector.
Elements of the Municipal Police in the company of Civil Protection personnel deployed an operation in search of the wild animal, whose traces located confirmed that it is a tiger, apparently young.
The residents of the town revealed that the animal, apparently domesticated, was seen near an irrigation canal and in a nearby community, so they are trying to establish if it is owned by someone and has escaped.
Elements of the Federal Attorney for Environmental Protection joined his search to help capture him and determine if he has a chip that certifies the identity of his possible owners.
Mario Cosme Gallardo, coordinator of Civil Protection of Ahome, stated that it is very rare to talk about a tiger, since this species of animal is not native to the state, so there could be confusion.
In the month of October 2020, in one of the streets of the municipality of Guasave, a young woman was captured from a moving vehicle walking her pet, a young Bengal tiger, which she only has tied to a leash around her neck. .
