In another bizarre example of what people will call 911 over, Camas Washington Police responded to an “animal problem” call of an SUV driving around with a tiger atop its roof. For reference purposes, tigers are not native to Western Washington.
Surely to the surprise of the caller and other tiger/bigfoot chasers of Washington the tiger was actually a stuffed toy.
Connor Zuvich was recreating at Lacamas Lake with friends when a truck came by and dumped litter and a large stuffed tiger. He then tied the tiger to his rooftop and drove around the lake several times. Apparently the fearsome sight garnered the attention of a frightened citizen who called for help.
Camas was dispatched and an officer responded to the complaint. After some investigative work, it was determined that in-fact the tiger was not real and posed no significant threat.
It should be noted however that fake animals, especially large cats, remain an underappreciated menace to Western Society.
