LONDON: Scotland police had a bizarre encounter with... wait for it... a stuffed toy.

Yep, you heard it right.

Cops in Scotland ended up in a 45-minute standoff with a large stuffed tiger. 

The incident took place after a farmer based out of Peterhead town in Scotland's Aberdeenshire council, called in the authorities thinking a big cat had invaded his cowshed. 

During a housewarming party at his place, farmer Bruce Grubb went out to check on his cows when he felt he saw a "tiger" on a ramp.

Following the farmer's panic call to the authorities, a large number of units, including an armed response team, were deployed on spot.

Eventually, they realized it was a toy.

“Until you know exactly what you are dealing with, every option has to be considered,” Peterhead Inspector George Cordiner told news agency Associated Press.
