The cops, who engaged in a 45-minute standoff before learning it was a just a large stuffed animal.

Brave cops were called to cow shed after a frantic farmer reported a loose tiger that he claimed was prowling his farm.

The cops, who engaged in a 45-minute standoff before learning it was a just a large stuffed animal.

Bruce Grubb, 24, was throwing a housewarming party when he spotted the stuffed tiger and mistook it for a real one, fearing his cows were about to be attacked, he called the police.

NYpost reports: Now “I feel a bit silly for calling the police, but I thought it was a real emergency,” he told the Scottish Sun. “I had absolutely no doubt it was real. I got a hell of a scare.”

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.

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.

It’s unclear how the stuffed toy got in the shed.
