Georgia floods: Escaped tiger 'kills man'

A tiger that killed a man and wounded another after escaping from a flooded zoo in Georgia has been shot dead, according to media reports. The animal was one of several to break free from its enclosure at Tbilisi Zoo last weekend, following severe flooding.
Earlier reports suggested the men may have been attacked by a lion.

Police were deployed to find the animal, which had been sheltering in a warehouse, AFP news agency says.
A spokeswoman for the interior ministry said the killing happened in the city's central square.
One eyewitness told the Imedi TV channel: "It was a white tiger, a big one. It attacked a man, it seized him by the throat."

 Need for emergency response plan suitable for natural disaster like this.
