CHARLOTTE, Mich. (AP) – A tiger on the loose? A Lansing zoo says don’t be fooled.

Potter Park Zoo says police have received about two dozen calls Friday, mostly from people in the Charlotte area concerned about reports of a tiger roaming free.

Authorities believe a prankster is making phone calls with a warning about a tiger breaking free while being transported outside the zoo. The caller’s identification was blocked, preventing people from determining where the call originated.

Potter Park Zoo director Sherrie Graham says tigers, lions, monkeys and camels are safe and secure.
