Pedestrians cowered in fear when they spotted a man taking his pet TIGER for a walk in the centre of a Russian city. Jaw-dropping footage shows the man walking his big cat on a lead in the city of Samara in southwest Russia.
A shocked onlooker filmed the scene while travelling in a passing car. A witness said: ‘It was a shock. It is rather scary to bump into a pedestrian walking a wild cat on a leash.’
Some people believe the man seen walking the beast could be the circus artist and animal trainer, Artur Bagdasarov. Witness Andrey Usoltsev said: ‘This is Artur walking his pet. We were at his show in the circus. We enjoyed it, especially sitting on the first row.’
