    If the escaped tiger was a cute cub like this one, its escape wouldn't be so frightening.

    LAS VEGAS — Abracadabra.

    Police in Las Vegas say a tamed tiger that escaped from a magic act has been captured.

    Police say the residents in the city's northwest section reported seeing the tiger wandering their streets Thursday night.

    Police Lt. Les Lane says the cat belongs to Fernando's Brothers magic act. He says the cat got loose, but "they got it back into custody."

    The cat was found in a resident's backyard.

    Animal Control and Metro Police are investigating the incident.
