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".
