Tiger sighting: unfounded

Ridgefield police responded to the Wilton-Ridgefield border on Route 33 Monday afternoon in search of a "full-sized" tiger that was reported in the area.

However, Wilton Police said Aug. 1 at 10:15 a.m. that the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection had visited the area and found no tiger tracks. The report was said to be unfounded.


The animal seen must have been a bobcat, police said.
