A 'tiger' being shot on Batavia

A 'tiger' being shot on Batavia
 
 

A tiger being shot on Batavia.
The plate is taken from the work 'Oud en Nieuw Oost-Indien' by Francois Valentyn.
The tiger had escaped from his stall and wandered about freely inside Batavia castle until it was shot.
A striking detail is that the 'teiger' depicted is spotted.
Various figures on the square are depicted running away in fear.
The socalled tiger is probably a leopard.
