What would happen if a tiger escapes into the ever-busy Lagos city is better imagined.

An escapee tiger was spotted by drivers early Thursday morning near a busy intersection in Henry County, Georgia, USA.

The tiger got close to a school bus route and walked around in a densely populated area.

Officers feared it could endanger the lives of residents as it ran towards the back of a property and started to attack a dog.

They said they decided to "put it down with gunfire" to avert a tragic story.
