In a hilarious incident, alarms bell were triggered when people in England spotted a tiger on a loose in the countryside. As soon as the tiger was spotted, help was called in to put the tiger back into its habitat.
The incident resulted in armed forces arriving on the spot and even a helicopter was brought in to catch the Tiger. However, in a bizarre turn of events, the tiger turned out to be a sculpture.
In a post, Twitter user Martha detailed about the strange incident. “My Granny is a sculptress. Today 10 armed police and a helicopter were called to her house after walkers reported a tiger in the woods. This is the tiger,” she wrote on Twitter sharing pictures of the incident.
The sculpture caused panic as it looks very nice and resembles a tiger pretty well.
“My son Duncan rang up and said there were armed police on the hill leading up to my house,” Simpson said. “Ten of them! By then I could see the helicopter above, and I thought, goodness me. So then I walked up the road and saw the police Land Rover. I went up and said: ‘Do you want to be introduced to this tiger?” the owner of the tiger told The Guardian.
She added that the tiger has never been a cause of panic until now. It is a 20 years old sculpture and had only been able to scare a couple of dogs to this day.
Meanwhile, tweeple seemed more than excited about this tiger sculpture.
Did it put smile on the police’s face? Hope so.May 3, 2020
