A tiger that apparently scaled a 12-foot (3.7-meter) wall to escape the Florida home of an actor who once played Tarzan was shot and killed Tuesday after he made a threatening move at a wildlife officer.

“The animal made an aggressive move toward the officer, he felt threatened, and, unfortunately, the animal was [killed],” said Willie Puz, a spokesperson for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
