Staff at the zoo that lost a lynx have been trying to get a tiger to move into a new cage - by dressing up as ghosts.

Workers at Dartmoor Zoo have been running around with pink blankets draped over them in the hope of getting Vladimir the big cat to budge.

The wacky tactic is aimed at luring the Siberian tiger into a temporary pen while a pond is dug in his main enclosure.

Royal Marines have volunteered to dig the pond and give Vladimir a place to cool down.

Zoo staff have tried everything to get him out including offering meat and throwing large balls.
