    Default Tanvir the tiger is a 'scaredy cat'

    Two-year-old Tanvir climbed the tower on Monday

    A Bengal tiger which became stuck at the top of an activity tower at a North Somerset zoo has climbed down for food. Two-year-old Tanvir climbed to the top of the 15ft (5m) structure at Noah's Ark Zoo Farm in Wraxall on Monday, but was too frightened to come down.
    The farm said the tiger had braved the journey down by about 2100 BST on Tuesday.
    After descending the tower, Tanvir ate a pig's head and is said to be none the worse for his experience.
    Christina Bush, co-owner of the zoo farm, said: "He must have been very hungry so he came down when he was ready.
    "I think he enjoyed the view from the tower."
    Tanvir has been with the zoo since the summer.

    Poor thing! His reputation has suffered.
