Panjo due to get two new playmates

Panjo the tigers owner Goosey Fernandes said on Friday he has bought two new big cats and cannot wait for them to arrive at his Limpopo game farm.

But he said he has battled for weeks to get the government to issue him an import permit to move the animals from Gauteng.

Panjo shot to fame a month ago after escaping from a bakkie and spending two nights on the prowl.

Fernandes said he is eager to bring his new tigers Apollo and Alice home but has spent two weeks trying to secure an import permit.

He said he went to court to get his transport permit, has had his property inspected and is ready to move the animals.

Fernandes said Alice is a four-and-a-half year old Bengal tiger who will be Panjos mate.

Apollo is a 300kg Siberian tiger who will be a tourist attraction on the game farm.

The Limpopo Department of Economic Development, Environment and Tourism confirmed it received the permit application and was applying its mind.
