A tiger is on the loose in Oakland, California!

Description (Dublin Core)

Amidst protests and COVID-19 shelter-in-place orders, Bay Area news sources reported that a tiger was on the loose in Oakland, California around 8:40 p.m. the night of May 31, 2020. The internet went wild as locals were on high alert for a tiger roaming the streets. By 8:52 p.m., the Oakland Zoo announced via Twitter that all of their tigers were accounted for. The Twitter-sphere went wild with humorous responses. My personal favorite response came from the Twitter account @Attorney@Law when they replied, "That's exactly what a tiger would say. Please confirm you are not a tiger."
