Tiger joins zoo

5:30 am on 2 May 2013

A zoo in India has been closed after a male tiger walked in.

Officials said the tiger, which was living in the wild, is roaming around the enclosure of a tigress. It was roaming around in an adjacent safari park for the past few months.

A zoo official said they opened the emergency gates to let the tiger enter the zoo and its movement was being closely monitored.

Wildlife officials are debating whether to let it remain in the zoo or release it back into the wild with a radio collar on.
