NYC Residents Panic Over Reports Of A Tiger On The Loose. It Was A Raccoon

NEW YORK (AP) _ Maybe it would be a good idea to hand out picture books of animals. This, after a false report of a tiger in the streets of New York caused a social media frenzy. WNBC says the New York Police Department got a call around 8:30 yesterday morning about a tiger in Harlem. People on Twitter described a notification from the Citizen app that said police were responding to unconfirmed reports of a loose tiger running around the street. Shortly thereafter, police confirmed that there was indeed a wild-animal sighting. It was a raccoon.
