People in a South African town have been warned against approaching a Bengal tiger that escaped from its owner.

The tiger, named Panjo, broke open the canopy of a truck carrying it and jumped free in Delmas, 40 miles from Johannesburg.

Panjo's owner Rose Farreira said it was tame but warned that it may attack unfamiliar people. She said the tiger could turn aggressive if it had been hurt in its escape.
