Some residents in Fayette County swear they've seen a tiger on the loose.
State police said they're keeping an eye out for the beast after sightings came in from all across the city.
Dispatchers said people calling in about the alleged tiger swamped their switchboard on Tuesday night.
However, on Thursday, the Pennsylvania State Police said a large cat expert from the wildlife sanctuary in Grindestone viewed the reported tiger and determined it was a tabby house cat of normal size.
