Tigers thrown off of truck during police chase in Central Vietnam

Police in the north-central province of Nghe An on Friday handed over two Indochinese tigers, which were thrown off a truck on a national highway during a police chase, to a wildlife rescue center.

At around 8:30 p.m. traffic police signaled to stop the truck on the National Highway 1A’s section through Quynh Luu District for inspection as they found it “suspicious.”
But the truck driver ignored the order and sped up to flee.
A team of police officers chased after the truck.
When the truck arrived at a small road, the driver made a sharp turn to enter the road, while at the same time throwing two anesthetized Indochinese tigers on the ground.
The officers picked up the two animals, which were tied up, and the truck fled the scene.
