Authorities Discover Four Tigers at Suburban Home

This happened in a Suburban neighborhood in Sumatra, but I thought this story was still perfectly appropriate for the New Year. From the BBC:

They are now trying to establish whether the tigers belong to the endangered Sumatran species, of which there are only about 400 in the wild.

A conservation officer told the BBC they were looking for the homeowner.

He or she could face a heavy fine and a prison sentence of up to five years for illegally keeping the animals as pets.
