The Accra Regional Police Command has released a statement reacting to complaints that some tigers are being kept in a residential neighborhood in Accra.
Some residents of Wanda World Estate owned by Nana Kwame Bediako Cheddar were reported living in fear over the presence of two wild tigers being housed in the estate by the estate owner.
According to the residents, they feel unsafe with the presence of the tigers and have failed in their attempts to have them removed by the owner or the facility’s management.
The residents added that their attempts to have the wild cats evacuated from the facility have always been met with hostile responses.
However, the Accra Police Command of the Ghana Police Service has issued a statement confirming that they have received complaints about the tigers.
The police have reached out to the Wildlife Division of the Forestry Commission and efforts are underway to relocate the animals to an appropriate facility.
