It was a roaring night.

After throwing a housewarming party for his new farm, a Scottish man called the cops claiming that he had seen an tiger in his barn.

Saturday night police received a frantic distress call from a farm owner living in northeast Scotland. Bruce Grubb, the new owner of the farm stated that he was having a housewarming party with family and friends that night. As he went to go check on his cows out in the barn, he shockingly claimed to have spotted the “tiger.”

Knowing that his story would be hard to believe, Grubb snapped a quick picture of the animal on his smartphone before running inside to contact the police. He called and told the cops what he had seen, he then sent them the photo of an orange predator laying down on the ground between his cow pens.

Several units responded to the call, and authorities contacted the nearest wildlife park to make sure no animals had somehow escaped. In time, armed officers arrived at the scene, and had a 45 minute standoff with said tiger. “I got the fright of my life,” said Grubb in an interview with The Washington Post.

In the end there was no threat at all, as the wild animal was not an animal at all, but a stuffed toy tiger.

Grubb had absolutely no doubt that the animal was real, but after an hour with no movement from the tiger, he became suspicious. “I drove up to it with my truck, and that’s when I knew it was a toy . . . I feel a bit silly for calling the police, but I thought it was a real emergency,” said Grubb in an interview with The Washington Post.

Grubb was not charged for making a false call as he had pure intentions at heart. The Scottish farmer claimed to have no idea how the stuffed toy came upon his farm. He suspects that someone may have played a prank on him. After the incident the police took the stuffed tiger with them when they left the scene. “Its silly that they went through all of that trouble for a toy,” said sophomore Hunter Ryan, who had heard of the innocent in Scotland.

That night was a surprise to both Grubb and the police on sight.
