Scottish farmer Bruce Grubb caused an armed standoff after calling police to “tackle a tiger on the loose”; it turned out to be a giant cuddly toy
An Aberdeenshire farmer panicked and brought in armed police when he saw what he thought was a tiger in his cowshed.
Bruce Grubb, 24, told The Scottish Sun: “It was very scary” and added: “I was stone cold sober, drink had nothing to do with me thinking it was real.”
A 45-minute stand-off followed until Grubb and police realised the creature was nothing but a cuddly toy. Roar!

Brilliant story, thanks, Matthew. Takes my mind off the current US administration, if only for 40 seconds.
Good one, and at least he wasn’t tanked up- “Put a Tiger in the Tank” as they used to say…..
I wouldn’t want him on a hunting trip with me if he can’t tell the difference between Poo bear and a Grizzly. I reckon he was on the mountain dew myself.
You should stick to writing this kind of drivel instead of unfairly targeting innocent pillars of the community like Viscount St Davids. It is quite unacceptable that you still have not removed the vile things you wrote about him. He and his dear wife and daughter have suffered enough because of you. Screw you Steeples. You do not fool anyone.
