SAN ANGELO, Texas — Rumor has it, a tiger was spotted in southwest Texas earlier this afternoon. The post with the tiger’s picture says it’s located in the Rio Grande River. FOX West Texas decided to verify whether this is true. Guess what? It’s false! KGNS in Laredo confirmed with the Border Patrol and several law enforcement entities that the pictures circulating were not taken in town.
You may remember a similar uproar last year from pictures of what people were saying were multiple hippos in the same river. That post was shared by the same news outlet who shared the tiger picture. The news outlet has a phone number listed that is not in service.
