Stuffed tiger sparks 45-minute standoff with police

Tiger on the loose turned out to be just a massive cuddly toy The cuddly toy that caught the farmer off guard

After the armed unit approached the tiger, they were quickly able to establish there was no threat to the public and called an end to the 45-minute ordeal. Only one problem: it wasn't a tiger at all.

This toy tiger sparked a almost hour-long stand off with police in Scotland.

It started when local farmer Bruce Grubb called the North East Police to report the presence of a large fearsome cat with stripes on his farm. But guess what this "tiger" looked liked.

Now "I feel a bit silly for calling the police, but I thought it was a real emergency", he told the Scottish Sun.

Grubb, who had "absolutely no doubt it was real", only became suspicious because the "tiger" wasn't moving after an hour. "I got a hell of a scare".

Mr Grubb added the first cop who arrive was so scared he "refused to get out of the squad car".

"There was a standoff of about an hour", he said.

The owner of the farm, Bruce Grubb, said he discovered what he had believed to be a living tiger while checking on his cattle. We really think They'rrrrrreeeee grrrrrrreat!

"I drove up to it with my truck, and that's when I knew it was a toy".

He said: "The police took it away with them".

"They said they wanted to keep it as a mascot", Grubb said.

It's thought the toy was put there as a prank by jokers. "We're laughing about it now but it was scary at the time".

After police were made aware of the situation, Police said they regarded the incident as a "false call".

The Scottish Sun said that while it is believed a prankster planted the toy animal, police are not planning on taking any action in the case.

Police received an unusual and frantic call Saturday night about a wild animal on the loose in a village farm in northeast Scotland.

"This included starting to make contact with the nearest wildlife park to make sure they did not have an escapee".

There was a 45-minute standoff before officers realized according to the New York Post.
