The city of Ulic on Sunday asked citizens to limit their outdoor movements.

Police, who said they had been briefed by Ukrainian authorities about the escaped tiger, warned people not to take any risks.

Slovak authorities urged people to inform them immediately if they see the tiger.

On Monday, Slovakia’s Environment Ministry said there had been no new sightings of the animal.

On Sunday, the nearby Poloniny National Park announced that camera traps had registered the animal’s presence near three Slovakian cities.

The park said in a statement that the young tiger escaped from a private breeder in the Ukrainian town of Strychava, just across the border.

Park director Miroslav Bural told Slovakia’s Tasr news agency the tiger was initially in an unspecified zoo in eastern Ukraine but was transported to the west of the country because of the Russian invasion.

It comes after a woman was injured last week when a group of wild animals escaped from a game park in South Africa.

Six lions, four elephants, two white rhinos, a black rhino, a buffalo and a pride of African wild dogs are believed to have escaped from Hluhluwe iMfolozi Park Game Reserve over several weeks.

Last month, a pack of wolves escaped from a zoo through a hole cut in a fence in Canada.

The Greater Vancouver Zoo was closed after the incident.

The manner of their escape was “suspicious and probably due to malicious intent”.
