Originally from Great Britain, the tigers were en route to a Tennessee airport to be flown to Germany, Payne said, adding that the surviving 13 tigers were healthy and unharmed.

Feld Entertainment, which had been contracted to move the tiger, said it does not know how Suzy got out while she was being transported from Tampa, Florida, to Memphis, Tennessee. The truck had stopped in Georgia during the overnight hours and during that stop, the female Bengal tiger managed to escape unnoticed.

Feld Entertainment, now-closed Ringling Bros and Barnum&Bailey Circus. later reported the tiger missing.

"When Feld sentenced these tigers to a miserable life in a German circus, this tiger's fate was sealed", Winders said. She was pictured walking along a highway and eventually ended up in Brittney Speck's backyard.

Then the tiger jumped on her dog.

"I've never heard her bark like that before", Speck said.

Tiger killed after roaming loose along I-75 in Atlanta

Motorists spotted the tiger early Wednesday along the interstate in Stockbridge, southeast of Atlanta, Henry County police said. "The tiger began to run toward the Meadow Brook community off of Jodeco Road, to the back of a residence and began to attack a dog". The dog was returned to its owner and the owner told an NBC affiliate, the dog was OK.

Police later shot and killed the tiger after a resident said it went to attack her dog. Soon, the tiger jumped on her dog. When the tiger became aggressive toward pets in the area, law enforcement deemed it necessary to protect the public and put the tiger down.

The dog, named Journey, escaped with just a few scratches and still has some dried blood on her body.

Henry County Police and Animal Control are now investigating where the tiger came from.

"It's a very sad day". Authorities are trying to locate the dead tiger's owners. "Clearly, this was a tragic accident", Payne said. "It was like a full-grown zoo tiger", the mother explained.
