Imagine if a major disaster hit East Roane County and caused some of the animals at Tiger Haven to get loose.
County officials are putting together a plan on how to deal with such a scenario.
“We’re going to identify what potential could happen and how to secure the area and make the public safe,” County Executive Ron Woody said.
Tiger Haven is a big-cat sanctuary on Harvey Road. According to its website, the facility houses more than 280 of the animals. Most are tigers, lions, leopards and cougars.
