Pet Tigers Spark Court Battle in Accra

Two tigers at the centre of a row between neighbours in Ghana’s capital, Accra, remain in a cage on one of the properties despite a court ordering their removal. When businessman Nana Kwame Bediako took the unusual step of importing them he thought people would be excited to see non-native wildlife. But his unimpressed neighbours took legal action. “My family and I feel very unsafe and terrified any time we see these tigers,” Pamela Agba said. They were brought in from Dubai as cubs last year but now the wild cats appear to be fully grown.
