Police Subdue a Tiger in Harlem Apartment

Police Subdue a Tiger in Harlem Apartment.
“A police sniper rappelled down the side of a Harlem apartment building
on Saturday and fired tranquilizer darts through a fifth-floor window
to subdue a 350-pound Bengal tiger.” By Alan Feuer and Jason George. [New York Times: NYT HomePage]

Well, yeah.
