BRYANT, Ark. — The image was startling enough to stop a woman in her tracks, compel her to pick up the phone and call police. The Arkansas woman told police she “stopped to take pictures of the animal, but was scared to approach it.”

When the Bryant Police Department officer arrived on scene, he got close to the tiger and discovered it was not dead, it was stuffed, as in a stuffed animal. The officer was “even nice enough” to give the tiger a ride back to the police station, police posted on Facebook.
