Police search for tiger stolen from home in northern Mexico

Mexican police are searching for a rare tiger that was stolen from a home in northern Mexico.

The tiger was reported stolen from a home in the city of Monterrey on Friday, according to local news outlet El Universal. The owner of the tiger, who has not been identified, reported the theft to local authorities.

The tiger is described as an adult Bengal tiger, about five feet long and weighing about 260 pounds. It is believed to have been taken by a group of people who broke into the home sometime during the night.

The theft of the tiger has caused alarm among local residents, who worry that the animal could be sold on the black market or used for illegal activities.

Police are currently investigating the incident and have asked anyone with information to come forward. They are also appealing to the public not to approach the tiger if they see it, as it could be dangerous.

The tiger is believed to be the only one of its kind in northern Mexico. It is a protected species, and any attempts to take it out of the country could result in criminal prosecution.

The theft of the tiger has highlighted the need for better protections of the region's wildlife and the need to crack down on poaching.
