Scottish Police Confront Plush Tiger Earlier This Week

I don't usually repost news stories, but when I do, I swear there's a good reason for it. (Usually involving wildlife, whether urban or rural.)

This time, police in Peterhead, Aberdeenshire, Scotland received the concerning alert that a tiger was in someone's cowshed. (AP) (The Cut)

Here's a picture of the offending tiger, from the Cut story referenced above:

From AP:

Police in Scotland were called by a farmer who thought a big cat had invaded his cow shed. They ended up in a 45-minute standoff with a large stuffed tiger.

Police thought they had the tiger by the tail when they were deployed to a farm in Peterhead in Aberdeenshire, sending in a number of units, including an armed response team. The authorities eventually realized it was a toy.

The police had a 45-minute standoff with a plush tiger.

No one was injured, and I can't imagine the tiger will face trespassing charges.
