Had that Tiger resisted, they might have beat the stuffing out of it!


A Scottish farmer frantically called cops to report a tiger in his cow shed, sparking an armed police standoff — only to learn it just was a large cuddly stuffed animal. Bruce Grubb, 24, was throwing a housewarming party when he spotted the bizarre sight and called police, fearing his pregnant cows were about to be devoured.


A Tiger in Scotland? Do they have those? One officer thought they might... He wouldn't even get out of his patrol car. Protect and Serve? More like Tuck Tail and Hide!


The frightened farmer said the first officer to respond to the scene was so scared that he “refused to get out of the squad car.”

North East Police even checked a local wildfire park to see if they had an escaped tiger on the loose.

After armed cops engaged in a 45-minute “standoff,” they realized the supposedly terrifying beast was actually just a big plush toy.


All's well that ends well. It might have been a false call but the officers were pretty easy going about it, even asking to keep the big fella


Cops said they determined the false call was made with “genuine good intent” in a Facebook post about the ordeal. They even asked an embarrassed Grubb if they could keep the stuffed tiger as a mascot.





Awe....

No , I can't believe that .


What were local education officers doing there ? Have this for jurisprudence

“Credible threat” means a verbal or nonverbal threat, or a combination of the two, including threats delivered by electronic communication or implied by a pattern of conduct, which places the person who is the target of the threat in reasonable fear for his or her safety or the safety of his or her family members or individuals closely associated with the person, and which is made with the apparent ability to carry out the threat to cause such harm. It is not necessary to prove that the person making the threat had the intent to actually carry out the threat.
