Several Michigan deputies responded to a late-night semitrailer crash on Interstate 75. The deputies knew the truck was carrying precious cargo, but they were shocked when they saw what was inside.
The truck was hauling eight Bengal tigers, each weighing about 600 pounds. The tigers are owned by a circus company and the driver was transporting them to New York. Both the driver and the tigers were uninjured and none of the Tigers escaped.
Deputies had to shut down one lane of a connecting ramp for a couple hours to clean up the mess. The tigers were held overnight at an area towing company.
