WATCH: Tiger Wandering Georgia Highway Shot and Killed By Police

A tiger stopped traffic as he was spotted roaming a Georgia highway Wednesday morning. 

Officers, fearing lives were in danger, shot the tiger rather than risk waiting for animal control experts to arrive with tranquilizers. 

Some thought it was an escapee from the nearby Noah's Ark Animal Sanctuary, but the facility released a statement saying its tigers were all accounted for.
