Miss­ing tiger found

Southern Riverina news - - News -

Carl White’s beau­ti­ful big fi­bre glass tiger, which dis­ap­peared from his Jer­ilderie St front gar­den on Satur­day night, has been found be­hind the Sports Club.

Per­haps it was a fa­nat­i­cal Rich­mond sup­porter, or a per­son with a pen­chant for large cats, who took a fancy to the tiger.

Carl has gone to a great deal of trou­ble, and not a lit­tle ex­pense, to make his front gar­den a place to at­tract passers-by, with colourful fi­bre glass birds, an­i­mals and a huge Amer­i­can In­dian on dis­play.

To add in­sult to in­jury, the thief or thieves broke off one of the tigers legs to re­move it from where it was teth­ered in the gar­den.

Be­cause of the theft Carl re­moved all the other crea­tures from the gar­den, which now looks some­what empty and forlorn.

Hope­fully this was a one off, maybe fu­elled by a lit­tle too much cel­e­brat­ing, and Carl’s fan­tasy gar­den can be re­turned to what it was be­fore the tiger lost a leg.
