Tiger Roaming Interstate in Georgia
WVLT - Local 8 News Thursday September 7, 2017

HENRY COUNTY, Ga. (WGCL) -- The Georgia Department of Natural Resources and the Henry County Police Department identified the owner and transport contractor responsible for the Bengal tiger that escaped and roamed freely early Wednesday morning in Henry County, CBS46 in Atlanta reports. A representative from Feld Entertainment, Inc., the company that was contracted to transport the tiger, reported the animal missing from a shipment after seeing news reports Wednesday morning. The tiger was meant to be traveling from Florida to Tennessee. The truck carrying the tiger stopped in Georgia overnight Tuesday into Wednesday morning, and during the stop, the female tiger managed to escape without anyone noticing. Officials found the tiger was missing when the truck arrived at its destination. The tiger was seen in several locations around the I-74/Jodeco Road exit. It apparently became aggressive towards pets in the area, and local law enforcement said it was necessary to protect the public and put the tiger down. The tiger was put down quickly and humanely, CBS46 reports. After the tiger was examined, a microchip was found inside the animal and matched to the number held by Feld Entertainment. The investigation remains ongoing with possible charges pending.

Former UT Grad accused of taking inappropriate pictures at Hess Hall
WVLT News Thursday September 7, 2017

Howard Sterling Hensley, who is also a 2015 UT graduate, admitted to using an iPhone to take pictures of the victim at Hess Hall, according to police reports. A man told police he took pictures of a female student in the bathroom of a university of Tennessee dorm and the victim said he got in because of a broken lock. The university said there are policies in place to prevent similar situations. Those include: each student has a key card that only lets them into specific areas, entrances are staffed 24 hours per day, when someone moves or graduates and key cards are wiped clean. The victim also said the university has been in constant contact with her since the incident and the broken door at the dorm has since been fixed.

 


TN Dept of Health has confirmed West Nile Virus and La Crosse Virus infections
WVLT News Thursday September 7, 2017

The Tennessee Department of Health has now confirmed 19 human cases of West Nile Virus infection and 11 cases of La Crosse Virus infection in the state so far in 2017. We typically see an increase in mosquito-borne illnesses caused by West Nile Virus and La Crosse Virus in our state this time of year, said TDH Commissioner John Dreyzehner, MD, MPH. There are no vaccines for these illnesses, so it's important to use insect repellent on skin and wear long, loose and light? clothing to make it harder for mosquitoes to bite and easier to spot them. Buying or properly treating clothes with permethrin, which is like body armor against mosquito bites, is also a good idea for higher-risk situations. TDH urged Tennesseans to increase their efforts to avoid mosquitoes. It's also important to limit mosquito breeding sites. Individuals can eliminate potential breeding sites if they tip and toss standing water, and drain and cover objects near homes or businesses that may contain or collect water.
