Town hall official Cedric Tartaud-Gineste said, “We are calling on inhabitants to be careful, not to leave their houses and to stay in their vehicles. Anyone who sees the tiger should call the police or the fire service.”
He said that a security cordon covering an area about the size of four or five football pitches has been set up around a wooded area.
