Zoo truck stolen with tiger and camels inside

A Bengal tiger named Jonas and two camels called Todd and Sean, are missing in Canada after thieves drove off with the truck and trailer in which they were travelling.

The three animals were on their way to the Bowmanville Zoo on the outskirts of Toronto, when the driver stopped for the night.

Zoo director Michael Hackenberger says he does not think the thieves had a clue what was inside the trailer.

He fears the animals could die of dehydration unless they get water soon.
