Police end standoff with toy tiger

Posted at 6:52 PM, Feb 07, 2018

A 45-minute standoff with a tiger in Scotland turned out to be a fluffy mess.

The tiger was a stuffed animal.

Peterhead Inspector George Cordiner said, "We received a call from an extremely concerned member of the public late on Saturday evening with regards to a wild animal being loose in the grounds of a farm in the Hatton area.

Bruce Grubb, 24, thought he saw a real tiger on his farm in Peterhead, Scotland. 

Police arrived but stayed in their cars to devise a strategy. It took Grubb an hour to realize it was a stuffed toy.

"We appreciate that it was a false call made with genuine good intent," said the Facebook post.
