A Scottish farmer frantically
called cops to report a tiger in his cow shed, sparking an armed police standoff — only to learn it just was a large cuddly stuffed animal.
Bruce Grubb, 24, was throwing a housewarming party when he spotted the bizarre sight and called police, fearing his pregnant cows were about to be devoured.
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.

And I always thought the Scots were a tough breed.
