45-Minute Stand-Off By A Police Officer And A ‘Stuffed’ Tiger

Frightened farmer Bruce Grubb, 24, dialled 999 after spotting what he thought was a tiger in his cowshed on Saturday evening. But after a 45-minute stand-off, they found it was nothing but a large cuddly toy.

An armed response team was sent to Hatton, Aberdeenshire, and the local zoo was contacted to check if there’s been a missing tiger but after finding out it was just a stuff toy, Mr Grubb was left ‘very embarrassed’, naturally.
