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!
